Interest Income Report On The 34.5 Million Dollar Loan To The Detroit Pistons
Field Report Filed By:
Richard C. Clement Legislative Aide to Council President Pro Tempore George Cushingberry Jr.
Education is not being ripped off in the new stadium, especially financial stability of the Detroit Public Schools. One of the benefits of being a former NBA player is that you have to get from place to place very quickly. The public private partnership with the NBA Detroit Pistons has resulted in the formal plans to restore Benjamin O. Davis Aerospace High School on City Airport property. Retired NBA Legends like Earvin Magic Johnson and owners like Dan Gilbert have skilled aircraft personnel to maintain their aircraft. Why pick on the NBA? The NFL, NHL, MLB and, soccer will get use of the airport too. Along with aircraft mechanics and pilots for Oprah, Beyoncé, Rhianna, Jay Z, Michelle Obama, aviation education will prosper. Major sports teams can get in and out of Detroit in no time at all and help the children at the same time. This goes for adults who want a career change job in aviation.
Meeting at Detroit City Council July 18th 2017
In the restoration plans, all FCC/FAA Certification programs will be restored from the failed policy practice of State Emergency Management. With the help of private partners in the Tuskegee Airmen and Young Eagles program, students of all ages will be able to fly into class and work on aircraft gaining valuable career knowledge.
On July 18th, 2017, Council President Pro Tempore George Cushingberry Jr. chaired a hearing of the Budget Audit and Finance Committee with Airport Director Jason Watt regarding the future of the facility. The reception was very positive with Council-member Scott Benson peeking in for the record. Schematic drawings for public review and comment are due by Wednesday Sept. 13th, 2017 to the Committee for the new layout of the neighborhood that includes:
2-3 new runways
Location of New B.O.Davis High School
Hangar space for larger aircraft.
When the evidence is clearly presented, the return on a 34.5 million dollar investment has already paid dividends in the form of educational opportunities and, neighborhood revitalization to a blighted area of Detroit, on property that the city never lost in the bankruptcy proceedings.
This plan was supported by court after court, Judge after Judge, because their law clerks took the time to carefully read the briefs of the plaintiffs and defendants. The judgement to affirm the decision of the City of Detroit should re-purpose the wasted legal time and talent spent by the plaintiffs suing the City. We hope that in a new classroom, the plaintiffs can teach aviation law with a grant from the Detroit Public School Community District at the new Benjamin O. Davis High School on the grounds of Detroit City Airport.
