Congratulations to Adam Hollier and Kicking Some Schuette Booty in November

By Richard Clement - The Committee To Elect George Cushingberry Jr.



After all is said and done, we want to thank everyone who voted for George Cushingberry Jr, in the Democratic race for Senate in District 2.  Although the result we wanted did not come out in our favor, it will be up to George Cushingberry Jr to determine the next move in politics. 



We also want to congratulate Adam Hollier on his victory and we hope the young man does well.  We wish him success in lowering insurance rates, reinvesting into Detroit City Airport, and stopping the attacks on the Detroit Public Schools.  This includes fixing the damn roads and legalizing marijuana.

When you come in 7th place, if anybody showed up that supported marijuana in this August election did not vote for us. That was a loud and clear message to the campaign. We are glad that our program to turn up the turnout was a success. More people than ever came out to vote in the August primary in a long time and that is a great thing. This election cycle shows that organization beats money sometimes.  This election was a well organized a** whupping of poli-tricks and mudslinging. 



The result of all the tactics used such as a well-timed filing of a lawsuit was a dismissal by a Federal Judge of all sexual harassment charges against the City of Detroit days before the election. After further review of all the evidence presented by both sides, the City of Detroit was protected from a frivolous lawsuit. The facts reveal that after being terminated in January of 2017 for cause, the suit was filed in 2018 with the full intent of thwarting George Cushingberry’s campaign to the Michigan Senate. The mutually assured destruction game plan was a success because both George Cushingberry and accuser Cleo Wiley lost.

Mission accomplished. 

Zero Sum Game

Make sure you show up to vote in the November General Election starting September 25th, until Tuesday November 6th, 7:59pm.  A vote for Gretchen Whitmer is a vote against racial profiling and a rejection of Bill Schuette’s divide and conquer politics. All white females are not the same and Gretchen Whitmer is not Jennifer Granholm!  We need to build more bridges of unity instead of walls of separation.

Elect Dana Nessel - Attorney General 

Transparency in State Government is non-existent and, a massive open government task force must be assembled to right the wrongs of the past. Electing Dana Nessel as the next  Attorney General will give her the opportunity to investigate the insurance industry and, the bankruptcy filings for financial fraud.


I am glad that this is over with and will take some time (not much) to figure out the next moves. At this time options are being considered for the future by George Cushingberry Jr in politics and business.


Thank you for your support.
Sincerely, Richard C. Clement – The Committee to Elect George Cushingberry Jr.

City of Detroit Supports George Cushingberry Jr! He is Going On Offense With Endorsements!

By The Committee to Elect George Cushingberry Jr.

#WeToo are Voting For George Cushingberry Jr.
We support the Detroit City Airport Historical District Plan..  #FreeKDET

It is with great pleasure to report that the City of Detroit is standing behind former Detroit City Councilmember President Pro Tem George Cushingberry Jr. He will not need to hire a private lawyer to defend himself against frivolous charges. After further review of all evidence, Corporation Council Lawrence Garcia filed a response brief with the Court in late July, dismissing the claims of the accuser Cleo Wiley Hale as an abuse of the sexual harassment #MeToo movement. 

Endorsed and supported by the Cannabis Community  #VoteForCush

Strong evidence shows that she maliciously worked to sabotage the re-election campaign of George Cushingberry on behalf of other candidates and, is actively doing it again. She was responsible for the election of Virgil Smith,Roy McCalister and is currently working on the behalf of Adam Hollier. All for personal gain off the backs of Detroit taxpayers, former spouses and, others that are closely involved with her.


Adam and Scott are totally against pot!
Especially in Highland Park and Hamtramck
 Vote for George Cushingberry Tuesday Aug 7th and November 6th.

We are fully expecting representatives from the female Sexual Harassment Golddiggers Union sponsored by "Progressives" PAC money to step up and attack our city in the next few hours in the information warfare world.  Just don't let them date any of your brothers, uncles, or any other male in your family. Just let Uncle Pookie,  Cousin Mike, your son or, brother come home all dinged up behind some drama, then it is a different ballgame.


The best defense of the people's money is to go on offense and cast your vote for George Cushingberry as your next State Senator.  It is your job to fight back in the information war by showing up and voting for candidates who have the best interests of the people at heart.


We endorse the use of green energy like Hemp to combat climate change
Push With Cushingberry for the Environment
Thank you Sierra Club!!!
To find out what he has done for the City of Detroit perform the following tasks.

1.  Go to the www.detroitmi.gov website
2.  At the top of the page enter Cushingberry
3.  Click the magnifying glass and Read to get the information you need.
4.  If you are satisfied, then go to step 6 otherwise go to step 5.
5. Go to Step 2
6. End process.

Holistic Medicine Dr. Margret Betts is Pushing for Cushingberry

Just like he did before, during, and after any crisis George Cushingberry Jr will guide us through the storms of controversy.  Red lines belong on a hockey rink instead of a city for insurance rates and, the way to change that is to:

1.   Elect George Cushingberry as State Senator
2.   Elect Dana Nessel as your Attorney General
3.   Elect Gretchen Whitmer as your Governor

#MotownStrong

If you give George Cushingberry the opportunity to work for you with your vote, the following things will happen the next day. He will introduce legislation to:

1.  Restore educational integrity by promoting literacy, virtual education with strict oversight
2.  Authorize the Attorney General to investigate the insurance industry for their damage to our economy with outrageous insurance rates. Statewide flat rate reform NOW!!!!!
3.  Restore losses to retirees by removing the pension tax, and use collective bargaining to allow unions to cover Medical Marijuana as a treatment to lower health care costs.
4.  Declare the Detroit City Airport as a Historical District and re-investment into airport upgrades with increased landing fees, new runways and a drag strip for the automobile buffs.
5.  Prosecution of all responsible for the Flint Water massacre to save a few bucks on the backs of the citizens of Flint MI.

George Cushingberry Jr, has clear proposals to Improve Michigan. 
On Tuesday August 7th, Elect George Cushingberry Jr  the man for you in District 2.

Thank you...

Screen Out The Elrick Blitz With Your Vote Today - Say NO to Adam Hollier

The Committee To Elect George Cushingberry Jr. State Senator District 2 
Press Release

There is good news for supporters of Marijuana reform this week. Signature collectors in Highland Park Michigan gathered 1343 signatures to allow the city to opt into State Marijuana law. Highland Park has 8553 registered voters and 10% or 853 valid signatures were needed to get the job done.  The City Council has two choices, either adapt the proposal as is on August 14th, or, let the people decide at the ballot box on November 6th.


If you need your grow wired right for you,
Just hire a member of the I.B.E.W!
Keep your community safe from electrical fires,
because I.B.E.W. members are very good hires!

In Hamtramck city leaders met with entrepreneurs who want to open facilities in the city. At the time of this writing, citizens were receptive and very supportive but no action was taken. In order to be on the November ballot a citizen petition initiative would have needed to be turned in by July 31st, 4pm to the City Clerk.




As the Senate race in District 2 winds down, I am reviewing all of the mailings that I received from the candidates. It is very true that candidates are being sponsored by people who do not have our best interests at heart.  The most offensive one was from a paid progressive candidate from Hamtramck who told the voters to “Stop Reading” and “Start Changing” using news clips from mainstream media.  There is a difference between being progressive and being young and stupid. How dare a candidate tell people to stop reading with the massive low comprehension rate among our citizenry? Over 50% of applicants to jobs are rejected because they cannot read nor write. Shame on you Abrham Aiyash! 

This progressive aggressive campaign plan is fraught with people running who would rather read a tweet than a book for knowledge. Reality show politics does not cut it when you have to make and design policy that will benefit everyone.  





              List of Accomplishments / What Has Cush Done? / What Can Cush Do?

If you cast your vote for George Cushingberry,  on August 7th,  he promises that on the next day, he will introduce legislation declaring City Airport as a Historic District. This law will generate needed revenue with new and improved runways, commercial air service, and a flight training school. When it is all combined this project will bring more revenue than the current 75 marijuana provisioning centers in the City of Detroit.


What has George Cushingberry Jr. Done?
Detroit City Airport Historic District
Coleman S. Young International Airport
Mt. Elliot Employment District


The insurance industry auto rates are one of the main reasons people are leaving the scene of an accident, or not stopping for hit and run victims. Now they want to present a slate of candidates to cover their tracks if elected. Their policies in Lansing have contributed to the poverty of our citizens. People cannot get licenses and they drive without them and just forget about the insurance.  We are turning our police departments into insurance collection agents when people need to get back and forth to work. 




What has George Cushingberry Jr  Done for the people?
In 2014, Saved the city $20,000 month in costs by stopping the payments to a software company charging the Detroit Fire Department for software that did not work. Code Red was Code Wrong and a payoff for the Bing/Hollier administration

If you give George Cushingberry the chance to be your Senator, common sense insurance rates and regulation with a strong Attorney General fighting for the people will be the order of the day. George will stabilize inconsistent rates statewide. Red lines belong on Ice Hockey rinks instead of neighborhoods.

Given the rejection by Oakland and Macomb Counties on regional transit, one way to solve this problem is through a state and federal massive public works infrastructure project. This comprehensive project will  replace the sewers, water and, build a regional rail system that connects to Amtrak and VIA railroad in Canada.  This will create lots of jobs and money recirculating back into the community. A good example is the sewer separation in Lansing Michigan that created better roads after the new pipes were laid down. With the current occupant of the Office of the President of the United States, this will never happen.

Stop the game plan of the KKK,
Stop the plan of Hollea,
gitcho souls to the polls, and vote TODAY!


A vote for Adam Hollier is a quick return to the failed Educational Achievement Authority that operated as a criminal business enterprise upon the Detroit Public School System.

The victims of the crime are the Children and the integrity of public education. From the first chancellor to principals of schools, the supporters of Hollier’s candidacy are counting on people not reading to finish the job they started on looting public education.  Just look at the great work they did with our schools like Benjamin O. Davis Aviation academy and Palmer Park (aka Hampton JR High School). The financial damage inflicted upon the Detroit Public School District by these emergency managers is inexcusable and the violators should be prosecuted. Hopefully our next Attorney General Dana Nessel can work on the Detroit School Board to restore the integrity to education. 

Website: Educational Acheivement Authority Exposed - Bogus Software and lavish spending - Detroit Metro Times

As for voting for Brian Banks, c’mon man!  The 2nd coming of Virgil Smith is running an expensive campaign that if he got elected, we would be without representation again because he would have to resign again because of looming legal problems of a life in prison for being a habitual offender if convicted again. It is clear that the insurance industry lobby is sponsoring him to divide the vote like last time.



Don't Get Confused by Watching Fox News.

This is no time to experiment with another bunch young so called progressive rookies endorsed by endless money of television commercials, mailings, bulletin boards and dazzling websites, sponsored by groups that do not have the people’s best interest at heart. Voting for Hollier, is another vote for the plan of the KKK. They support Aiyash because he does not want you to read and, Banks is sponsored by people that know he will be legal trouble again forcing him to resign or go to jail for life. We do not need a repeat of the Virgil Smith fiasco and the sexual harassment blitz sponsored by alt-right Fox News network. The City of Detroit will protect the taxpayers from frivolous lawsuits. We don't need a make work program for lawyers, we need a make work program for our infrastructure.


Cleaning house in Lansing means is done by showing up to vote in person TODAY at your City Clerk's office or on Election Day at your polling place (Find your Polling Place HERE):

Highland Park and Hamtramck Opting Into State Marijuana Laws

By Richard C. Clement - Marijuana Policy Analyst - Csystems Technologies


There is an effort currently underway to allow the voting citizens of Highland Park Michigan to allow Marijuana businesses in their community.  A group of concerned citizens is circulating a petition to create an ordinance to regulate the number of businesses within the City limits.  1000 valid signatures from registered voters in Highland Park Michigan are needed to place the issue on the ballot. If enacted by a citizen vote, the ordinance will be implemented to manage the growing Marijuana industry within City limits.


City of Highland Park Michigan - Register and Vote Today!
www.highlandparkmi.gov

Out of all of the candidates running for State Senate in District 2, George Cushingberry Jr is the only one who is running that has consistently supported citizen efforts by enacting legislation as a Michigan State Representative and a Detroit City Council member.  The Highland Park legislation will be nothing like the restrictive Detroit ordinance and, will voted on by the people instead of a mayor and city council by themselves with no public input.

Signatures are due by Monday July 30th, 2018 4 pm to the Highland Park MI City Clerk's office. For more information please contact Marcelus Brice at (313) 778-6282.

City of Hamtramck MI www.hamtramck.us

In other news, the City of Hamtramck Michigan is currently reviewing their legislative policies for opting into state law. From the last public hearing held in early June, city leaders were very receptive to citizens opting into state law. The mayor and city council listened to their citizens speak about the benefits of the Marijuana business in helping to create jobs, and support the quality of life for citizens especially city employees, retirees, and schools.  As of this date, the City of Hamtramck is currently weighing all options.

On or before Tuesday August 7th, cast your vote for George Cushingberry Jr, State Senator the man for you in District 2 because he gets the job done!!

Why #WeToo are Voting For George Cushingberry as State Senator

The Committee to Elect George Cushingberry Jr. State Senator District 2. Press Release.


The Man For You In District 2

The August Primary election is a very important election to participate in. As in all elections the direction of your community and the quality of life is at stake. We are experiencing now the game plan of the opposition as we pursue your vote and trust to send us to Lansing to get the job done. The insurance companies have contributed to the downfall of Michigan through outrageous rates and price fixing. This is the main reason people are running from accidents to avoid prosecution. We have City of Detroit leadership wanting to build more buildings on the grounds of Detroit City Airport shutting it down while there are massive amounts of buildings available to do what he wants.  We have people endorsing candidates who have aided and abetted in the creation of the Educational Achievement authority that was raided by the Federal Government for fraud.

When George Cushingberry Jr. gets to Lansing MI, this is what he will do.

  • Implement Common Sense Insurance Rates
  • Restoring Accountability in Public Education with caps on the creation of charter schools
  • Re-Investing in the Mt. Elliot Development Project that includes a working Detroit City Airport for General, Educational, and Commercial use.
  • Taxation, Regulation of Marijuana including expunging ALL convictions in Michigan.


For example, as a State Representative, George Cushingberry sponsored a bill for good times credit for non violent offenders. As a Detroit City Council member, he was responsible for the upgrade of Livernois Avenue through implementing grants for streetlights, sidewalks, and supporting local businesses on the Avenue of Fashion.

The Sexual Harassment and the manipulation of the #MeToo movement is the new strategy to sabotage political campaigns. Just like the Ebola crisis that disappeared after the 2014 election, the sexual harassment and other negative "news", we are fully expecting this play call from the opposition. Sexual Harassment is gender neutral and all legitimate claims should be investigated. We feel that the timing of the filing was to get maximum damage from the City of Detroit and to derail the Cushingberry campaign.  When you examine the record of the other candidates, George Cushngberry has the documented proof of getting the job done.

Bear Bryant was quoted once as saying "In order to catch a fast negro running the ball, you have to hire another one to catch them" because he finally acknowledged the fact that you needed to include the black players he did not want on his team.  Distraction politics is only going to carry you so far and blitzing the campaign with charges and innuendo will not work. 

Therefore do not be confused by watching Fox News, just screen out their blitz with your vote for George Cushingberry Jr.

Fact: 

  • George Cushingberry Jr. still has his law license
  • The traffic stop was deemed to be unprofessionally handled by two patrol officers who wisely deleted the tape of their misconduct. 
    • We chose not to press charges against filing a false police report because we respect the men and women of the Detroit Police Department, especially the retirees. 
    • We want an apology written to Sgt. Smith by media reporters for promoting insubordination because of race.
  • The City's finances are no longer under the control of a State Appointed Manager under the direction of George Cushingberry Jr as the chairman of the Budget Audit Finance Committee.
  • George Cushingberry Jr. is the ONLY candidate on the ballot who has supported the legalization of marijuana and has history and evidence to prove it.
  • Will take on President Trump and Bill Schuette and scold them on their brand of exclusionary racist politics.

Don't get blinded by the blitz of bad news coming from media outlets like Fox and other haters.  Screen them out with your vote!

From now until, Tuesday August 7th, and again in November 6th, Elect George Cushingberry Jr, the man for you in District 2.


Save your home and apartment complex
from fires caused by faulty wiring
by hiring a PRO!
If you need a grow wired right for you,
just hire a Member of the I.B.E.W.!

George Cushingberry Jr.  Supports Electricians and loves their work!

Sexual Harassment Is Gender Neutral Hyper-Political Warfare In 2018

Press Release: 
The Committee To Elect George Cushingberry Jr State Senator District 2


The charges made by Ms. Wiley are an attempt to use the Sexual Harassment / #MeToo movement to shake down the Citizens of Detroit and, to derail the efforts of George Cushingberry Jr to become the next State Senator in District 2. As she has done before with the City Council primary election of August 2017, she is working as a political operative for other candidates on the ballot. Her only purpose now is to distract the voters enough to elect a candidate, who will maintain the status quo and, forced to resign, leaving the residents of District 2 without any representation again. 


Cleo W. Hale and Former City Council President Pro Tempore George Cushingberry Jr.

We believe wholeheartedly that the accusations are false and misleading for individual financial gain. We also agree with the City law department regarding Ms. Wiley's employment because before during and after the Florida trip, she has continually contacted potential suitors developing a close relationship with some of them within the state. 

Employees who have worked for George Cushingberry know that he is un-bought, un-bossed and, not for sale. Given the scrutiny of working for the public, transparency is a moral tenant and, a rule of doing business in public and private.



Kanye Was Right!  Don't matter if you are Black or White



While serving as the Council President Pro Tempore and, chairman of the Budget, Finance, and Audit committee, one of the things that was put in place was a law department to protect the people from frivolous lawsuits. Frequent lawsuit filers are a drain on budgets public and private and, divert precious resources away from needs such as employee health care costs and, creating jobs. 

It is our strong opinion that after all of the facts are examined, the best interests of the taxpayers in the City of Detroit will be upheld by the US District Court and, the case dismissed.

Sending George Cushingberry back to Lansing as a State Senator guarantees that when he gets there, he will work on:
  • Getting Michiganders common sense auto insurance rates
  • Public Education revitalization through a policy of stressing literacy and training opportunities for youth in aviation careers and skilled trades.
  • A revitalized Detroit City Airport with general and commercial air service bringing needed revenue to the City.
  • Re-balancing the State Budget to increase funding of Mental Health facilities, public education, and decreasing the Corrections budget through the expunging of low level drug crimes 
  • Curtailing abuse of Opioids, prescription drugs and other mood altering medicine sold by pharmacies for profit.

Show up and Vote all Summer Long from now until August 7th, and again on November 6th, 2018 and lets get it right this time!!

Why Elect George Cushingberry Jr. for State Senate in District 2

By the Committee to Elect George Cushingberry Jr.



George Cushingberry Jr. has a documented record success as a Government Finance Specialist. He successfully guided the City of Detroit out of financial ruin and, out of State of Michigan control from the Financial Review Board.  Despite being harassed by people who turned out to be gold diggers and, friends who were not friends in the long run, Dr. Cushingberry persevered to get the job done.   Known for his tenacious reading and research methods from being a lawyer,  teacher, preacher, and politician.  Dr. Cushingberry is openly questioning how many times do you grant second, third, forth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eight and, upcoming nine chances for felony convictions.


Dr. George Cushingberry Jr.

The other candidate, Bryan Banks is unfit for serving as a Senator or, as a public official. He is one politician who isn’t running on his criminal record.  He is one step closer to getting indicted by Federal officials for bid rigging contracts at the Michigan Department of Transportation. Facts are that Macomb County Michigan has the worst roads in the State of Michigan with failing concrete and massive potholes. MDOT has a history of questionable business practices towards people of color and quality of road work.

The Democratic candidate for Michigan’s Second Senate District has been convicted eight times for felonies involving bad checks and credit card fraud from 1998 to 2004, the Detroit Free Press reports. He has also misrepresented endorsements from Wayne County Sheriff Benny Napoleon.

As reported by Wikapedia.


"In February 2017, Brian Banks reached a plea agreement with the Attorney General's office in which all felony counts against were dropped in exchange for his immediate resignation from the Michigan House of Representatives and pleading guilty to one misdemeanor.Banks announced his formal resignation in Wayne County Circuit Court on February 6, 2017.[15]




"In December 2017, the Detroit Free Press obtained FBI wiretap transcripts that were unsealed in U.S. District Court. The investigation is linked to a corruption case against Gasper Fiore, the owner of Boulevard & Trumbull Towing, a large City of Detroit contractor. In December 2017, Fiore entered into a plea agreement with the U.S. Attorney's Office, in which he agreed to plead guilty to conspiracy to commit federal program bribery. According to court documents, the government had probable cause that Fiore and 17 other targets were involved in several crimes, including: extortion, wire fraud, bribery. Fiore was so politically connected that in 2016, his daughter helped write an amendment to the Michigan Department of Transportation budget that ensured his company would win a multi-million dollar contract, federal documents show."



"Along the way, Fiore appeared to have gotten help from Banks. "Fiore is involved in bid-rigging with legislator Brian Banks," Special FBI Agent Robert Beeckman wrote in 2016 affidavit, which included intercepted text messages and phone calls between Fiore and Banks. "





To make that mistake again by electing Bryan Banks as a Senator, will be the same mistake people made with Senator Virgil Smith.  We need our leaders to serve out their full term(s) instead of being forced to quit for maliciously breaking the law. Dr. George Cushingberry Jr will not tolerate authoritative brutality like the one that was inflicted upon the people of Flint Michigan. 


George Cushingberry will push for the re-investment into Detroit City Airport as a viable airport serving the entire community. From his efforts, he has increased the use of the facility by 60%.   Dr. Cushingberry will not tolerate the dismantling of education and will be a drum major for literacy and reading, especially to the children.

State Rep. George Cushingberry Jr.

Finally Dr. Cushingberry does not support changing the people's vote on the Detroit Marijuana Ordinances.  The issue was negotiated on November 7th, 2017 by the voters with no exceptions.  To place moratoriums for the purpose of re-inserting rules that were rejected by the people is another punch in the face to Mrs. Boynton-Robinson on the Edmund Pettis Bridge in Selma Alabama because she had the audacity to demand the right to vote. 

Amelia Boynton Robinson - Selma Alabama

How Dare you come on this bridge and talk about voting Mrs. Robinson?

Therefore starting Saturday, June 23, 2018 until Tuesday November 6th, 2018 at 8:00pm, vote to Elect George Cushingberry Jr. State Senator in District 2 every place you see his name on the ballot!  Because a vote for Cush is a stand against voter suppression, voter fraud and, protecting the young people from the lies being told and sold by forces who do not want them to vote.
Show up and Vote!  Or Else!.   


Cushingberry Gets Things Done
