Mike Dugeon, a 30-year-old northwest Detroit barber with no known political experience, filed papers Thursday morning as a write-in candidate in the Aug. 6 mayoral primary.
His name is pronounced DUG-un, as in Mike Duggan
Dugeon, a Cooley High grad who went on to Michigan Barber School and cuts hair at Big D's Barbershop on Livernois, is widely seen as a potential spoiler to Mike Duggan’s write-in candidacy for mayor. City election rules allow voters to misspell a write-in candidate's name, but having two similarly named men could complicate things.
While Dugeon appears to have no discernible political ideas, he has left a trail of wisdom on his personal Facebook page. (A separate Dugeon For Detroit campaign page, created Thursday, has 3,233 followers already.)
