Lisa Howze for City Council

Lisa Howze is the only certified public accountant in the City Council race. In a city that is dealing with both a crush tax burden and staggering budget deficits, I believe there is a certain value to having an accountant on the City Council.

Lisa Howze has 14 years of public accounting and client service experience, which includes creating budgets, reviewing contracts, analyzing financial results, performing financial as well as operational audits, and managing client expectations. During her tenure with Arthur Andersen LLP, once a “Big Six” accounting firm, Howze worked on the City of Detroit audit engagement.

Lisa Howze has made crime, education, housing, jobs, mass transit and neighborhood stabilization key parts to her campaign. More information about her is available on her campaign web site. I am pleased to join the Detroit Free Press in endorsing her.
