Eugene Kang Loses Primary

According to Eugene’s campaign and the Washtenaw County website, Eugene Kang has lost his primary for Ann Arbor’s Ward 2 city council seat against former Republican candidate for mayor Stephen Rapundalo with a vote of 480 to 575.

Eugene earned 45.5% of the vote to Mr. Rapundalo’s 54.5%. According to the canvass report, Eugene carried four of the ward precincts, and tied in one, with Rapundalo winning three precincts.

Had he won the primary and general election, Eugene Kang would have been the first undergraduate to serve on the Ann Arbor City Council in at least a decade.

UPDATE: Dale Winling of the New West Side Association has some thoughts.
