George Cushingberry
Respected by his colleagues, George Cushingberry has a long history and track record of serving the people’s interests and getting things done.

George Cushingberry has deep roots and committed to education with a campaign of financial, legal and spiritual literacy. His specialty is finance, budget management, and oversight. He is very adamant about this and has called out many a department for not having their papers in order. He also compliments departments and businesses that practice transparency in financial management policies. Frequently visits K-!2 schools reading to children and donated his City Issued Vehicle to the Police Department for their use.  

The plan is on track to remove State of Michigan oversight and reverse the damage of Emergency Management in City Government. Cushingberry is a consultant to the Detroit Public School District School Board to move Davis Aerospace back to airport grounds, reversing a horrendous decision of Emergency Roy Roberts to strip certifications and the attempt to dissolve the Tuskegee Airmen program.

Mr. Cushingberry is responsible for the upgrade and overhaul of City Technology. Departments that were running Windows 3.1 and software for the Fire Department was drastically overhauled with the help of fellow councilmembers and the Information Technology staff under the leadership of Chief Information Officer Beth Niblock.

Mr. Cushingberry is a strong advocate for the Department of Recreation regarding the future of the City with recreation centers. He is currently listening and working with ALL stakeholders to develop a fair and inclusive Marijuana Ordinance that will serve the needs of the people and benefit the entire community. The new marijuana ordinance will be in compliance with State law.  The ordinance seeks to address concern of residents that the Marijuana Industry be more than just be a bunch of African American consumers with no reinvestment back into the community.

Statewide effects of a local ordinance will allow agriculturalists to grow and manufacture products ranging from home construction materials, road concrete, and other products made from the male plant.

Four years ago, certain news media outlets lambasted the choice of Brenda Jones as Council President and George Cushingberry Jr as President Pro Tempore. Four years later, these people were completely wrong. So much has been accomplished and the oversight to keep things right are in place.  Now is not the time to experiment with others who talk the talk and get exposed during the walk. After further review of the facts, Brenda and Cush have led the push for a better and brighter Detroit.

On or Before August 8th cast your vote for the best candidate! George Cushingberry Jr.  Detroit City Council District 2.
