More Reasons to Elect George Cushingberry Jr. as City Council President in 2014
Duggan and Cush will lead a Push for a Better Detroit
If I am elected by my peers as Council President, this is
what I will pledge to do:
1.Will not accept a City Car, Credit Card, or a
City phone while my city is in financial trouble.
a.Reimbursement for Miles only
2.Flatten out the organization chart through
consolidation and streamlining of staff.
a.Adding two committees on Appropriations and Ethics
3.Pledge to implement Mayor Duggan’s Dept. of Neighborhoods
and, his progressive agenda to revitalize the City.
4.When the City of Detroit is clear of Bankruptcy,
implementing a tax to sustain the pension system.
5.Vigorous participation in the South East
Michigan Council of Governments (SEMCOG) organization.
We live in a megapolis with everyone in the Southeastern
region of Michigan. Transportation must be improved with light rail, bike
lanes and, the expansion of the current People Mover region wide. Within the
city, expanding the downtown loop of the People Mover to travel to ALL of the
casinos including the new Red Wings arena, Ford Field, and Comerica Park.
If you support my efforts, please donate $5.00 or whatever amount you can do to help. Sincerely, The Exploratory Committee to Elect George Cushingberry Jr. for Council President
