Socialist Party presidential candidate Mimi Soltysik to appear in Ann Arbor, Flint

"Socialist Party presidential candidate Emidio "Mimi" Soltysik will make two public appearances in Michigan this week, stopping in Ann Arbor and Flint to discuss his platform and take questions.

Soltysik will first stop in Ann Arbor Sept. 14 for a 6 p.m. public speaking session at the University of Michigan's Mason Hall in Room 3356, where he is expected to speak and take questions, according to an announcement from his campaign.

He will also attend a Sept. 15 candidate forum for independent and third party candidates at the Mott Community College Event Center in Flint, which will run from 3 to 6 p.m. with doors open at 2 p.m.
Both events are open to the public.

Soltysik, a longtime political activist and Socialist Party leader, will be the first Socialist Party presidential candidate named on Michigan's ballot since 2004. Socialist Party candidates in 2008 and 2012 ran write-in campaigns in Michigan.

He and running mate Angela Nicole Walker were nominated to the Socialist Party presidential ticket at the party convention in October 2015, and Soltysik will appear on the Michigan ballot as the Natural Law Party presidential candidate.

With his stops in Ann Arbor and Flint, Soltysik will be the latest of three third party candidates to schedule public appearances in Michigan...."
