Note, this post was written in 2010 at that time the Mayor was renting in the City he now owns a home.
A little confused here, the Mayor of Dearborn Heights, was elected by the residents of this city right? I didn’t miss something right, I ask because it seems to me by the way he was talking at the last city council meeting, and you can see it on this blog, he did not once mention the residents of this city. While every council member I think said that they wanted to do what was best for us, that they wanted to put our interest first, and for most front, and center. So why didn’t the Mayor do the same thing? Why does our Mayor want to look out for the interest of the police before he puts our interest first? Isn’t he suppose to be on our side? Isn’t he supposed to find out what is best for his residents? why is he so willing to raise our taxes? Mr. Mayor you are not spending your money you’re spending our’s, every resident of this city, you are raising our taxes, not yours, you no longer own property in this city. Does that make it easier for you?
Mr. Mayor if you want to be part of that gang (the police force) then you should have chosen a different career path years ago. We all know your fascination with (the gang ), you took that so far as to put police lights on your car, but do you have to make us suffer for your endless need to fit in with them. I call them a gang because that is how they are now being described in the city, by the people who live here. So while the Mayor placate to the police, and the council is going to be bullied, by (the gang), who’s looking out for us? I thought that was his job. So Mr. Mayor while you came off looking like the hero to the police sitting in the council meeting, and you bathed in their praise you forgot about the 53,000 other people who are flipping the bill to let you live out your fascination with the police force.
So folks while Tweedledee, plays around with your money, and your taxes are going to be raised, what are you going to do? For those of you that come here, if you are at all interested or concerned that you’re not being heard, if you do not want to have your taxes go up, then show up at the next city council meeting. If it’s all right for the officers to sit in the council chambers, and shout then we should shout too. Gather your friends, neighbors, relatives, anyone you can think of, and fill the room with the people who are going to pay for this.
I leave you with this,
