The introduction of House Bill 5977 to stop cities from getting into community benefit agreements is morally reprehensible and irresponsible to the leadership and the Citizens of Detroit. A benefit of a Community Benefits Agreement between the City of Detroit and the Detroit Red Wings would look like this, supporting the Jack Adams / Ice Complex located at the Adams Butzel Recreation Center.   The Detroit Department of Recreation has one of the best public ice skating rinks in the area that exposes Detroit youth to a skill that will give them something to do and keep them healthy.  The Jack Adams Ice Arena Complex has a NHL size rink that is maintained by the City of Detroit.  

Skating Lessons for Youth
One of the agreements between the Detroit Red Wings and the City of Detroit is to support activities that would uplift the youth and community. The coaches there are very good and take the time to work with the children on skating skills and learning the game of Hockey.   Currently there are 2 players who are currently in the NHL that came through the program.  Some kids end up playing in college and semi pro because they are that good.

Young Detroiters take to the rink!
Therefore it is our duty to demand of our leaders in Lansing to stop meddling in affairs that usurps a local City or Townships in Michigan.  You must call and email bomb the Michigan Legislature to voice your displeasure. When you send this email of protest, please place  HB5977 (OPPOSED) in the subject line.  For a  complete list of Michigan Legislators, please click here.

The integrity of local control must be recognized and respected.
