My name is Ali Ramlawi and I am running in the August 7th Democratic Primary election as a candidate for City Council representing Ann Arbor’s 5th Ward. Many of you may know me as the owner of Jerusalem Garden, a downtown restaurant on E. Liberty Street.
Since last year’s general election, when I came within 200 votes of defeating the incumbent, my supporters and many residents in Ann Arbor have encouraged me to run again this year and continue the political discussion we started in August of 2017.
I am running because I believe City Council needs more voices, more views and more diversity. We deserve representation that will bring common sense back to our city government. I will remain independent of the factional parties on council and represent the concerns of my 5th Ward constituents.
I look forward to meeting and speaking with you as I campaign in your neighborhood. In the meantime, if you have questions for me, please email: [email protected].
