Gloves Come Off in Dearborn City Council Race

With just over a week until the election, things are getting heated and ugly in the race for Dearborn City Council.

Two candidates for Dearborn City Council are accusing each other of being ethically unfit to be a public official, pointing to what they say are past misdeeds, according to an article in today’s Detroit Free Press.

Candidate Steve Dobkowski Jr. cited police reports he obtained that show candidate Michael Sareini being involved in three assaults of women in his family, dating back 23 years.

Sareini in the Free Press accused Dobkowski of “a political ploy to get attention.”

He also countercharged that Dobkowski had his own past problems, noting that he was removed from the City Charter Commission in 2006 by the City Council after he failed to pay his property taxes for 13 years. By not paying his taxes, Dobkowski was violating the city charter.

The dispute between the two is part of a broader fight between two camps among the 14 City Council candidates vying for seven open seats in the Nov. 5 election.
