David Curson, a Democratic candidate for a partial term representing Michigan's 11th Congressional District, explains what voters will see when they vote on Nov. 6.
Friday, September 28, 2012
To the Editor, My name is David Curson and I am a candidate for U.S. Congress in the 11th District, undoubtedly Michigan’s most confusing election. I am writing this letter to try and untangle the confusion. Congressman Thaddeus McCotter (R-Livonia) has represented the 11th District since 2003. His current term of office expires on January 2, 2013. In May of this year in a stunning surprise, the election commission determined that McCotter’s petitions to validate his candidacy for the 113th Congress contained illegal and forged signatures rendering him ineligible to run for re-election. Then in yet another surprise move, on July 6, 2012, Congressman McCotter announced his resignation from the 112th Congress effective immediately leaving …
