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.
