Petition Complaint To Disqualify Virgil Smith from Running for Office - Due Date 8/18/2017

To all citizens, friends, and supporters of Council President Pro Tempore George Cushingberry Jr. You have until Friday August 18th, 2017 at 4:30pm to file a complaint with the Detroit Elections Commission to invalidate the Affidavit of Identity filed by Mr. Smith on April 18, 2017 with the City Clerk for Detroit City Council District 2.

Your letter must be received by this date and time to be officially logged to allow the commission to invalidate the candidacy and the votes for Virgil Smith.  

For the 2,817 people who chose to vote for Virgil Smith, We hope you reconsider your vote and choose George because he is committed to raise literacy rates with Children in the Detroit Public Schools.  He has never been convicted of a crime because he is unbought and working for a greater Detroit. For those who did not vote in the primary, you voice needs to be heard loud and now. Now Virgil Smith faces the mandatory 2 year prison sentence everyone else gets for using a gun while committing a felony with no early out if he continues to pursue this course of action.

File your complaint by getting it date stamped at the Elections Bureau on 2978 Grand River Detroit, MI 48202. An example of one is below filed by Richard C. Clement. Other methods are sending and e-mail to the Election Commissioners  Council President Brenda Jones, Corporation Counsel Butch Hollowell, and City Clerk Janice Winfrey.  Your system time stamp will serve as an official record of filing.

Gun violence has no place in our city and we hope that Virgil learns conflict resolution and anger management methods. Therefore and in the name of justice and respect to the Detroit City Charter, we want the Elections Commissioners to do the right thing by unanimous vote to invalidate the Affidavit of Identity filed by Virgil Smith.

Example/Guide Letter.

Petition and Citizen Complaint

Hon. Janice Winfrey Chair
Detroit Election Commission
2978 W Grand Blvd
Detroit, MI 48202

Subject:  Petition and Citizen Complaint the Detroit Elections Commission/
Invalidation of the Affidavit of Identity Filing for Virgil Smith filed on April 18th, 2017

The acceptance of the affidavit on April 18th, 2017 for Virgil Smith to appear on the August 8th primary ballot was an error by the clerk’s office. At the time of filing, Mr. Smith, a felon was and, currently is on felony probation. The agreement with the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office specifically prohibits his candidacy. Smith executed the agreement with the advice of attorney exchange for a reduced prison sentence and dismissal of the mandatory 2 year sentence. (One with Gun will get you 2).  He is on felony probation for 5 years. The courts were lead to believe that he was not going to run for office and, gave no consideration to offending the rules and provisions of the Detroit City Charter specifically Article 2, Section 2-101.

Given the candidate’s prior history and current legal issues, accepting his Affidavit of Identity to be a Candidate for the Office of Detroit City Council District 2 was an error and, a deliberate attempt to mislead and confuse. Any votes he received are null and void.
His name appearing on the ballot is a violation of the Detroit City Charter Section 2-101 and 2-107-11 for lack of qualifications.
Therefore I and other neighbors we are requesting the Detroit Elections Commission to invalidate the Affidavit of Identity filed on April 18th 2017, and remove Virgil Smith’s invalid candidacy.

We have known each other since 3rd grade and he is still Tony to me.  He is a product of Detroit Public Schools and a professional musician that has worked with many artists like the Dramatics, Snoop Dogg, Warren G, and other too numerous to mention.

We must continue to fight for change legislatively to insure that educational opportunities remain for our youth in meaningful careers that will add to the quality of life.

We must continue to support S.T.E.A.M. careers and sponsor youth sports that can lead to lifetime careers and pay their way through college.  Bowling and Golf are NCAA sports that schools offer scholarships and financial assistance to pay for books.  

For people who like to tinker with cars, cruise weekend on Woodward will be hosted at Palmer Park on Woodward from McNichols to 8 Mile Road. sponsored by The Crusin In the D organization.  We hope that you bring your finest cars , bikes, and motorcycles on Woodward to pay tribute to the first piece of concrete connecting cities. For more information please visit the website .

For those who say that their vote does not count, just think about making cars run on fuel that was grown from the ground?  Fixing Pot holes with Pot? Making Clothes?  and 50,000 products. 

Industrial Hemp is the Male part of the Marijuana plant that can be used as a fuel source for vehicles and, repair the atmosphere at the same time.

Green Jobs making concrete from hemp products for Road repair instead of Jails is in the power of your vote. 

By now we all have cell phones that have more computing power than anything that NASA had sending people to the moon and back in the 1960s.  Start using your search engines like Google, Bing, and other applications to search on keywords Industrial Hemp Fuel and find out for yourself.

In my four years in this position, I Richard C. Clement was beat up by the Detroit Media mob on the first day of the job. They dogged me out and taught me well about what time it was. That's ok because I am glad I did not quit. Nor did I get fired and I sincerely thank Mr. Cushingberry for that. Now they are so cool to meet in person and I want to send a shout out and thank you to Alexis Wiley, ML Elrick, Ronnie Dahl, Kevin Detiz, and those other radio and TV people who helped me along the way.

Nolan Finley, you are ok too. I was right in saying that Jones and Cush will lead the push for a smarter and brighter City. Balanced budgets and getting our Schools back under local control will be an absolute plus for the children and the future direction of Detroit.

And on October 1st, Michigan Firefighers will benefit from the proceeds of Medical Marijuana Sales that was signed into law by Gov. Rick Snyder. And I am still advocating for alternative treatment for retired City Employees with PTSD and other symptoms that can be treated with Cannabis. Especially all the retired DPD Officers who are totally stressed out after serving us so proudly.

Otherwise, be an informed voter by using your search engines on your electronic devices on issues that concern you. Then look and search for George Cushingberry Jr. Detroit. After comparing all of the candidates and, looking at what was done and accomplished by Mr. Cushingberry in public service, there is no other choice but to vote for the man who is and continues to be Unbought, Unbossed, and determined to Keep Detroit Moving Forward.

Get Out And Vote in 2017 to practice for 2018.
