Michigan’s primary elections take place on Tuesday, August 7th. All this week, WDET will introduce you to the candidates running in key races across Southeast Michigan. Today, we meet John Goci, one of five Democrats running in the 13th Congressional district which includes much of Detroit and parts of western Wayne County. Goci was born in what is now Kosovo. His family moved to the U.S. when he was nine and bought a restaurant in the city of Wayne. Goci now manages the restaurant with his brother and was elected to the Wayne-Westland school board in 2009. When WDET’s Pat Batcheller asked him why he’s running for Congress he said he wants to bring a more cooperative spirit to Washington.
