Roy McCalister, Jr. brings an astonishing level of experience to his campaign for the Detroit City Council. I am proud to endorse him.
As a police officer, Roy McCalister rose through the ranks to become Commanding Officer of the Homicide Section for the Detroit Police Department.
As a soldier, Roy McCalister served on active duty and reserves in the U.S. Army. He was a part of the Army's Criminal Investigative Division and was responsible for interrogating some of Saddam Hussein's top aides during Operation Iraqi Freedom and helped to train the Iraqi police force.
As a candidate, Roy McCalister has made edcuation, mass transit and public safety key issues in his campaign. He also has a strong focus on historic preservation; understanding that it can be a key ingredient to creating jobs and improving tax revenue.
I am pleased to join AFSCME (Local 3082), the Detroit Police Officers Association, Hood Research and the union employees of Henry Ford Health Systems in endorsing Roy McCalister for the Detroit City Council. More information about him, is available on his campaign web site.
