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!.

Do Not Reward the Educational Achievement Authority With Your Vote

Press Release:

Education Sub Committee of 
the Committee To Elect George Cushingberry Jr.
State Senator District 2

A Vote for Adam Hollier is a Vote to return to the EAA

Electing Adam Hollier as a State Senator would be a reward and a pat on the back for supervising the dismantling of Detroit’s public schools, especially workers’ rights and health care. State Employees do not need any more abuse from the failed polices of financial mismanagement and fraud. With the assistance of Emergency Managers, the biggest Ponzi scheme ever was inflicted upon the people of Flint, Benton Harbor, Hamtramck and, retirees from public service.  

In Detroit and under the leadership of former Mayor Dave Bing, Adam Hollier supported the implementation of the Educational Achievement Authority, an organization that made the Detroit Public School System woefully inept.  During his tenure schools buildings were raffled off to the highest bidder and assets like computers and aircraft were sold to charter schools in Grand Rapids.  Student test scores were unchanged while chancellors, principals, and un-qualified teachers were forced upon students for financial gain.

Aviation Careers Lost at Benjamin O. Davis will now be Found.
and students will have job opportunities.

Despite the vociferous complaints from teachers and students, Bing and Adam Hollier managed to persuade two Detroit Democrats (Harvey Santana and John Olumba) to agree to expand the EAA by adding 50 more schools.  The result of this action is what you have now, Schools like Palmer Park Academy (The old Hampton Jr. High School) with ceilings falling in because of neglect. Cass Tech High school football scoreboard missing lights, new buildings being constructed when they were not needed and other atrocities committed against the children’s education.

George Cushingberry Jr. is responsible for the new development at Riverside Park

There is no coincidence that some of the same people and organizations endorsing Mr. Hollier’s candidacy were willing participants in the destruction of the Detroit Public Schools. Some of them are still under investigation by Federal Authorities for the damage done to young minds through financial neglect. By voting for Adam Hollier, this will be like putting Bing back in charge so that the complete destruction of Benjamin O. Davis High School for Aviation careers will be complete and, the guilty in Flint MI will be granted pardons by the Governor in the lame duck session.

We helped Sativa Detroit on 8 Mile and Santa Barbara shut down and move to Ann Arbor
10 jobs lost and a drop in sales at the Coney Island..

There is no coincidence that some of the anti-marijuana clergy in the community is endorsing Hollier’s candidacy. Their only job was to help businesses open up in the suburbs.  Business entities outside of Detroit used these people, fake news of crime and, the 80 year old myth on marijuana to create jobs at the expense of City residents.  Combined with the poor transit system that is currently in place and, the missing revenue from payroll, rent, and taxes, cost Detroit $3 million dollars and counting, by seconds.

To fix this mess, on June 22, 2018 until Nov 6th, 2018 mark your absentee ballot for George Cushingberry Jr. State Senator District 2 TWICE!  One vote to fill the partial term and, one vote to fill the 4 year term.

When you complete your vote, you will know that on August 8th, the people in District 2 will have a voice in Lansing. George stands for jobs, justice, and equal opportunity for all who want and desire to improve the quality of life. We must finish the job of creating a new aviation education complex with firefighter training facilities by a new aviation division of the Detroit Fire Department. The concept of a statewide flat rate auto insurance will be an action plan on the day he accepts the job.  You should not have to park your car in Ohio to get a better insurance rate.

George Cushingberry Jr feels that we must remain committed to improving literacy in our community. This commitment must include the restoration of the cuts to education at all levels. Support Teachers Everyday!!!

The time is now, register and vote, all day long. - Good Stuff on the Internet
