Tell me..

who should be elected to City Council? At this point, I know who I will vote for in the mayor and city clerk race but the city council race is still wide open. I am not sold on or against anyone.

Candidate: (* incumbent)

Ortheia Barnes
Alonzo W. Bates *
Keith B. Butler
Sheila M. Cockrel*
Ken Cockrel, Jr.*
Barbara-Rose Collins *
Monica Conyers
Tia Davis
Jai-Lee Dearing
Brenda Jones
Hilmer Kenty
Kwame Kenyatta
Maryann Mahaffey *
Martha Reeves
Bettie Cook Scott
Thomas F. Stallworth III
Alberta Tinsley Talabi*
Jo Ann Watson*

To be honest it is a waste of a vote and no honor to vote for Mahaffey. The city can not afford a special election and there is no guarantee a better slate of candidates for that one position.

So which candidates do you think are the best for City Council? Who is going to have Detroit’s best interest in mind?

Weblinks were grabbed from’s Detroit ballot. Tomorrow, let’s discuss City Clerk Candidates…

    I think you should vote for Hilmer Kenty.

    He has a great video on his website, of when he was a boxer at Joe Louis Arena.

    If you’re going to vote for someone, at least go for someone who can throw a good punch.
