Who is Ken Darga?

Ken Darga is a moderate Democrat who is running for Congress in Michigan's 8th District (Ingham County, Livingston County, and northern Oakland County).  He believes that Congress should develop policies that address objectives and concerns of liberals and conservatives at the same time.

Ken Darga is seeking support from Democrats, Republicans, and Independents because he believes that EVERY segment of the population has concerns and perspectives that should be reflected in public policy. 

He is an economist with two Master's degrees from the University of Michigan:

He has thirty-five years of public policy experience:

He is the author of two books on the census and he has served for seven years on the national steering committee of the Federal-State Cooperative for Population Estimates.

His background and personality are closer to what you would expect in a congressional staff member than what you would expect in a member of Congress.  (That is a good thing--the federal government might function more effectively if many members of Congress could be replaced by members of their staffs.)

He grew up in Birmingham, attended high school in Detroit, and lives in Lansing with his wife of twenty-eight years.  He is the father of two adult sons.
