Feedback at 5:00: What Do You Think About Mayor Estes' Decision To Run For Reelection?

Posted: Updated:

Wednesday's Feedback at 5:00:

Earlier today, Traverse City Mayor Michael Estes spoke out publicly after his recent drunk driving arrest.

Estes was arrested one week ago after police say he failed sobriety tests and a breathalyzer test.  

His blood alcohol content was .12%.  

The legal limit in Michigan is .08%.

Mayor Estes apologized to those impacted by his actions, and said anyone who has cast an absentee ballot and already voted for him can go to the clerk and cast a new one, if they chose to do so.

His name will still be on the ballot for the upcoming election.

What do you think of his decision to still run for mayor?

It's tonight's Feedback at 5:00.
