A poll is being commissioned to determine if Councilman-Elect George Cushingbery Jr. should run for Detroit City Council President. Voting is now open until December 15th, 2013 @ 12:00pm. Your opinion counts and I appreciate your feedback. The poll can be found on the top of this blog.
Councilman Elect George Cushingberry Jr.
"City of Detroit based auto insurance is an attainable goal with the City Charter. Within the language of the charter, the City of Detroit is able to establish our own coverage with much lower rates. For too long City residents have been bullied by high rates for their auto insurance. As Council President I will work with Mayor Duggan to make this a reality." – George Cushingberry Jr.

What does it take to make a great City? Revitalization and Restoration of Belle Isle (With Input from the Citizens)
Consultant to the Friends of George Cushingberry

If we can build a water pipeline from Detroit to Port Huron, then we can build a sewer system on Belle Isle without an issue. The Detroit Water and Sewer Department will oversee the construction of any infrastructure in a partnership for anyone who wants to get training and experience on construction. There are plenty messed up streets in the city that need immediate attention. Bio concrete mixed with Industrial Hemp will create jobs and opportunity for the city to lower property taxes for residents.
These are some of the ideas that can help our city maintain, without the pain of a few dictators in the Statehouse in Lansing who, do not have the TRUE best interests of Detroit residents in their heart.

|Bassist Will Austin|
Austin, a self-taught Bassist performed with Dizzy Gillespie, Lil’ Esther Phillips, drummer Gene Krupa, Terry Pollard, Ysef Lateef, Sammy Davis Jr., Sonny Stitt, Johnny Hartman, Diane Carroll and list goes on and on. Austin a native of Saint Louis, Missouri moved to Detroit in the mid 50’s and worked in Automotive Sales by day and jammed at jazz and blues clubs by night; along with raising a family. A regular performer at Baker’s Keyboard Lounge, it would be an injustice to refer to Austin as a sideman, because his music kept the rhythm, provided the bottom and supported the vocalist.
Always mindful of giving back to his community, Austin received the “Legends of Jazz Award” from the Detroit Instituted of Arts. He and the late Alma Smith and Bert Myrick often performed for the late Father Cunningham’s Focus Hope Christmas Party.
|Edward "T-Money" Green|
The Friends of George Cushingberry Jr. totally supports the event, and will make it a point to highlight the talent and the legacy of some of Detroit's own. We are glad that we can honor someone who is alive to appreciate it instead of honoring them after they have passed away. Detroit has produced so many musicians that have went on to professional stardom, and musicians who learned how to play from some of Mr. Austin's students that went on to college and played in bands to pay for school. So when you hear a thumping bass coming from a car or sitting at a concert, you can be rest assured that the sprit of Will Austin is in full effect.

The Man for YOU, in District #2
Saturday, August 17, 2013
This is the schedule of proceedings from the US Bankruptcy court regarding the bankruptcy filing by the appointed leadership of the City of Detroit. The City of Detroit is not Gateway Computer Company and our Police and Fire Department employees do not deserve to be paid Wal-Mart wages for a difficult and dangerous job.
If you have an objection to the filing of the bankruptcy you need to use this form from the court. (Click Here to download and print the objection form)
Gateway employment under Snyder went from a 20,000 employees down to 7,000 with over 19,000 jobs shipped to Mexico and China. We do not want the same for the City of Detroit. Just imagine that you will have privatized public safety officers and fire fighters working for profit on the number of arrests, prosecutions, and putting out fires. There is too much room for manipulation and fraud to boots profits if this is allowed to continue.
This bankruptcy filing has created few extremely high paying jobs for small venture capital firms that specialize in selling off property, cutting wages and benefits for WORKING people, and skimming off the profit leaving behind a tornado of low wage jobs and empty homes. 100 hours work of work at $495.00 an hour adds up for Conway MacKenzie's Charles Moore and others on the gravy train. It has allowed a bunch of video game nerds and bean counters to tell retired and current Police and Fire Department personnel that they don't work hard enough, and they can train anyone to do the job for much cheaper.
Detroit workers must stand up, file an objection and let your voice be heard. We want timely garbage pickup, streets to be repaired with quality concrete or asphalt, and city employees to be paid a fair and living wage. We want our retirees and current employees to have quality health care because health is a moral issue not financial.
Let your voice be heard loud and clear. The time may be short to file but the time is now to get the job done. Even more important is that you participate and vote for your ELECTED City Council because all of the EFM positions will be gone by the end of 2014. If we re-elect the current leadership in November we will get more of these Emergency Financial Managers for the next 4 years.
When you cast your vote for George Cushingberry Jr., the City of Detroit will have their own insurance company that can set competitive and lower rates for property and car owners. The charter that was voted upon by the people of Detroit has this provision clearly written in the language.
Let us take back Detroit one home at a time because the only direction to go is UP!
Please remember to register to vote by October 5th to vote for me in District 2 by November 5th.
Your city's future depends on it.
