Michigan Supreme Court candidate speaking at Dems’ Convention
A lawyer who has fought for the victims of the Flint water crisis, the rights of women in the work place, and people with disabilities will speak at the Livingston County Democrats’ spring convention.
Sam Bagenstos is seeking the endorsement of the Michigan Democratic Party for a seat on the Michigan Supreme Court. He will speak at the county party’s March 22 convention, set for 7 p.m.
At one time, Bagenstos clerked for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. He worked in the U.S. Department of Justice under President Obama and now teaches law at the University of Michigan Law School.
The county party’s convention is in preparation for the April 15 statewide convention at which the Michigan Democratic Party will endorse candidates for statewide offices, including Secretary of State, Attorney General, and Michigan Supreme Court.
At the local meeting, party members will select members of state convention committees and consider resolutions for forwarding to the state party.
The county convention will be at RE/Max Platinum Auditorium, 6870 Grand River, between Brighton and Howell. Registration begins at 6:30 p.m. Attendees are advised to park in the back, use the rear entrance, and take the stairs or elevator down to the auditorium.
