Last week, Detroiters spoke loud and clear that they want change.
All but four of the new city council members are newly elected. A new charter commission was elected and important proposals were passed which will have an impact on schools and allow council elections by districts. Mayor Bing will now have four years to see through some of the actions he began during the last 6 months to get the city back on track.
Now that we are past these critical elections, we believe initial focus should be on ensuring sound fiscal management of the city, providing reliable City services , improving the perception and reality of public safety and maintaining a robust redevelopment strategy.
