Signatures Sought For Detroit Mayor Recall


Detroit Mayor Dave Bing is now subject to a recall effort. This recall effort is being led by a state representative who believes that Mayor Bing has left the city defenseless when it comes to the deployment of police officers and emergency responders. The Wayne County election board certified the language for the recall last month but it's just being made public now.  44,000 signatures are required to place the recall on the ballot in May and the projected costs an an estimated $500,000-$900,000.

Some would wonder why recall a guy who may not run for re-election in November 2013 anyway? him and The recall effort may actually serve two purposes: to stop Dave Bing from continuing upon his path, and secondly to send a message to whomever may run for Mayor that the residents of the city of Detroit will have a say in the governance of the City of Detroit.

A great many Detroiters believe that Mayor Bing is hell bent on giving away as much as he can before he leaves. There are those who believe that Gov. Rick Snyder is actually running the City of Detroit.  A common perception is that Dave Bing is so pro-business he is anti-neighborhood resident. It is believed that he has abandoned Detroit's neighborhoods in favor of the downtown area.

A great many people I have talked to directly feel that for Dave Bing, Detroit begins at the New Center area and travels down Woodward Avenue to the University District, past the medical and entertainment centers, into downtown through the sports district, passing Gilbertville and ending at Jefferson.

The only genuinely new development abutting a Detroit neighborhood is the Gateway Project on 8 Mile.   Other than that, Mr. Bing has not generated a major new project in his three years in office that is not in or near downtown Detroit.

What he has managed to do is to eliminate bus service, lay off thousands of Detroiters, eliminate human services, end city oversight of Head Start, deceive organized labor, and sign off on consent and milestone agreements that severely curtails his role as an elected official.

Trust is another issue for Bing.

Dave Bing is said to have lied when he promised he would not fire former Detroit police chief James Barnett and covering for staff affairs that would not be tolerated in the world he came from. He is also accused of lying when he said before he was elected that he would only take one dollar in compensation. He got caught being paid and using benefits five months after he began receiving them. Bing said he would not move into the Manoogian Mansion. He said, and I was there when he said it, that he would honor the $100 million negotiated concession package that his administration and the unions bargained over a two-month period late last year.

The likelihood of the recall supporters securing the required number of signatures is high. People are fanning out all over Detroit gathering signatures from residents who claim to have been harmed since his election.  The signatures must be turned in in February, 2013.   Stay tuned.

  11. Luckily, there are many methods in safely removing unwanted hair.
    As far as medical treatment is concerned, it's often suggested to consult your doctor before any further proceeding. When one thinks of fungus, they don't generally associate it with the head or
    scalp, but the itching, burning scalp, rash or
    pimples on the scalp could very well be caused by a fungus, requiring antifungal shampoo to provide well needed
    relief to the symptoms.

  12. What kind of favorable publicity do you think you'd get from a once-a-month letter in your local publication. When Muslims and Christians weren't in good terms,
    Christian monks believe to have escaped the persecution and found a shelter within the walls of the persecuted tombs and
    temples of ancient Egypt, but ironically, those monks have ripped many of
    the reliefs on those tombs because they distracted them from practicing their religion, not to mention that the reliefs represented "fake" religion that they didn't want to be associated with. This is also probably one of the easiest forms of advertising, with only an advert designed for a specific box needing to be created. In just about every objective way that nations can be judged the US is losing the present. 8 At the dinner table always sit next to a member of the same sex, unless your host or hostess suggests otherwise, likewise in cafes and restaurants.
