Despite a steady trickle of leaked recordings of him being horrible, Warren Mayor Jim Fouts was re-elected to a fourth term on Tuesday.

On today’s show, we talk about and what it says about Warren.

Then, we highlight some other races from around the region and discuss what they say about those cities, from Ferndale to Flint and Eastpointe to Livonia.

Finally, we speak with Colleen Martin and Saharsh Hajela, two University of Michigan graduates who co-founded Shout. That’s a brand-new, non-partisan mobile app aimed at making it easier for regular citizens to find and contact their elected representatives. We ran into them at TEDxDetroit, where we recorded today’s show.
