I’m the mayor of Lansing, and I love the Capital City | Letters to the Editor – Detroit Free Press

We are centrally located in the state, and honored to be Michigan’s Capital City and home to our State Capitol building. We’re very proud of our 113,000 residents and the contributions they make to the State of Michigan. Detroit is important, but claiming it’s the center of Michigan is dismissive of the rest of the state. I hope anyone throughout the state will come here to Lansing and check it out. Do some research (read “100 Things to Do in Lansing Before You Die” or check out the Choose Lansing website), and you might just love it here too.
