Cramer decides to end city council campaign

Jean Cramer, the candidate for Marysville City Council who made a racist statement last week, has decided to end her campaign. According to Marysville City Manager Randy Fernandez, Cramer delivered a letter to Marysville City Hall Monday stating she will withdraw from the election. The letter does not state a reason. During a city council candidate’s forum last week, Cramer stated “keep Marysville a white community” when asked about attracting a more diverse population to the city. Sue Child at the St. Clair County Clerk’s office tells WPHM the official deadline to withdraw was in April. Despite Cramer’s decision to end her campaign, her name will still be on the ballot for the November 5th election. Cramer was one of five candidates running for three spots on Marysville City Council.
