MARYSVILLE, Mich. – A city council candidate in Michigan said Friday she has no plans to end her campaign after shocking a public forum when she said she wants to keep her community white "as much as possible."
Jean Cramer made the comment Thursday in response to a question about diversity in Marysville, a city in St. Clair County, 55 miles northeast of Detroit. The Times Herald in Port Huron said she's one of five candidates running for three council seats in November.
During a follow-up interview Friday outside her Marysville home, Cramer doubled down on her statements. She said if there is a biracial marriage in their family, she could understand why her stance might upset her neighbors.
"Because those people don't know the other side of it," she said. "For whatever reason, I've heard, they love each other, whatever, but there's also such a thing as remaining single. People don't necessarily have to get married, and, if they love somebody, love them single. There's nothing wrong with that."
