University of Michigan film student Jaclyn Vresics, one of three candidates for Ann Arbor City Council on the Mixed Use Party ticket, announced Wednesday that she was suspending her campaign for Ward 1 council seat. She announced the action in an email quoted by

"Although personal reasons require that I withdraw from the election, the Mixed Use Party has my unwavering support. I have full confidence in Conrad [Brown] and Sam [DeVarti] as candidates, and I maintain my belief that the party's platform will bring much needed and beneficial change to Ann Arbor."

Despite the suspension of her campaign, Vresics' name will still appear on the general election ballot alongside incumbent Democratic city councilwoman Sabra Briere and independent candidate Jeff Hayner.

The other two Mixed Use Party candidates are continuing their campaigns. Fellow University of Michigan student Brown will be competing alongside Democrat Kirk Westphal to unseat incumbent independent councilwoman Jane Lumm in Ward 2. Eastern Michigan University student DeVarti is challenging incumbent Democrat Stephen Kunselman in Ward 3.

Both Jack Eaton, the Democratic nominee in Ward 4, and Mike Anglin, the Democratic nominee in Ward 5, will be the only names on the ballot for the seats they are seeking. However, Anglin faces a write-in candidate in Tom Partridge.

The Mixed Use Party is campaigning on a platform of simplifying the zoning code. On the party's website, the party asserts that their zoning plan will make housing more affordable, protect residents from harm, and protect the environment.

In addition to their zoning plan, the party states that it "believe[s] in civil liberty, efficient government, environmental preservation, and legal equality."
