Kwame and Penske

according to Channel 7, Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick announced a partnership with Roger Penske for a brighter future in the D… i am totally ecstatic about this news because Penske did an amazing job with SBXL, all while successfully avoiding all the political crap… in a joint press conference they announced their first two tasks: the Clean Downtown Initiative and the Neighborhood Clean Initiative… i don’t know the details on either, but they both sound nice… cleaning up the city is definitely a start…

this partnership could be awesome for the city… i give a lot of credit to Kwame for going through with this partnership (i’m unsure as to who initiated it)… i may be reading too much into things, but i find it significant that Kwame has so publicly teamed up with a white guy… i almost expect that somehow he’ll get some grief for that, but hopefully i’m wrong… if this partnership is successful it will be a great example of how things can go in the future…

i realize that right now, it’s impossible to tell how well this will work out or if it’ll work out at all… but i’ve been needing to hear some good news about the city and this is definitely good news…

    Good news..if anyone can keep the ball rolling in the city of Detroit, it’s Roger Penske. I’m glad Kwame is partnering with Roger and keeping him in the mix.

    i too am all for the cleaning and over all pretty-ing of the city. just yesterday i was doing the normal spring yard sweep, trimming branches, getting rid of all the potatoe chip bags that blew against the fence all winter and whatnot but as the branch pile started getting higher i then wondered what i would do with it without bulk trash…i then wondered how many other people were going to think that ahead of time, not even bother and just give up on any real landscape ideas that couldn’t be hidden in the regular trash.
