Michigan gubernatorial candidate Abdul El-Sayed to visit campus tonight


Michigan gubernatorial candidate Abdul El-Sayed will visit Central Michigan University at 7 p.m. tonight in Anspach Hall room 166 to converse with students and people in the Mount Pleasant community. 

El-Sayed is the former executive director of the Detroit Department of Health and Wellness Promotion. 

His visit comes after an on-campus appearance by former Michigan Senate Minority Leader Gretchen Whitmer on Sept. 9 in the Bovee University Center. 

The College of Democrats at Central Michigan University invited El-Sayed to introduce the CMU campus to Democratic candidates in Michigan’s 2018 gubernatorial election, said the registered student organization’s president Ethan Petzold. 

Petzold said in a previous interview this is an opportunity for candidates to address what their priorities are to students. 

The next guests to be invited will include former Xerox Executive Bill Cobbs and Entrepreneur Shri Thanedar.
