Traverse City Mayor Michael Estes got busted for drunk driving in Traverse City Wednesday evening. He blew a .120 and was arrested. Estes is up for re-election in November.

A guy who goes by “Homeless Del” is running as a write in candidate for Traverse City mayor. “If a homeless person can sometimes beat a4 to 10 person teams in trivia, why can't he win as Mayor of Traverse City?” That's just one of the quotes from his Tumblr page. What about issues? He wants to keep Traverse City's Open Space open and move the Cherry Fest to the fairgrounds. Follow Del on twitter here..
