Who Should Detroiters Pick for Council?

Detroit City Council session

That’s a good question. Not being a Detroit resident, it’s probably not my place to answer. Despite recent city council candidates poll results, I can say who Detroiters should not elect to council.

Spirit of Detroit

The moral of the story? Don’t vote for the incumbent just because. Chances are they don’t actually represent you, but rather some other or special interest. In Detroit, this is the difference between moving forward or falling behind.


  1. I’ve got to say I’m pretty much in solid agreement with you for the most part, and I DO live in Detroit. However I do differ with you on Saunteel Jenkins. Although I agree it’s upsetting about her friendship w/ Kwame and Christine, to me it’s not enough to cancel her out. If I was written off based on some of the friendships I’ve maintained over the years there would be little hope for me. Safe to say all my friends ain’t saints, but I’d like to think my hands are pretty clean. And Saunteel’s longtime relationship with Maryanne Mahaffey – whom I was extremely supportive of – says an awful lot to me.

    • I’ve got to agree with you based on your last sentence. Thanks for giving me a better perspective. Ultimately, what matters most to me is who’s best to move Detroit forward.
