Mark Ouimet, said the ability of schools to offer a quality education has been under attack with cuts from the state. She was joined by 53rd District state Rep. Jeff Irwin, D-Ann Arbor; Adam Zemke, an Ann Arbor Democrat running in the 55th District; and Sandy Inman, a retired Chelsea school teacher. Read the story.
