WCO Appears Before the City Council

I appeared before the Detroit City Council on behalf of the Warrendale Community Organization this past Thursday and asked them to make public safety a much higher priority in the City's upcoming budget. Specifically, the WCO asked the City Council to hire more police officers than what Mayor Kwame M. Kilpatrick proposed his 2008-09 budget request.

For anyone who interested, the complete text of my remarks is available on-line here. The WCO only had two minutes in which to address the City Council so those remarks were fairly short. We'll see in the coming days how effective I was with those remarks.

Great statement! We are so glad that you are speaking out on this matter. My inlaws reside in the Warrendale area and determined to remain there. We pray every day for their safety. My husband moved from Warrendale for the very reasons you are citing.
