A group of concerned citizens have come together to try to make the necessary changes for a more viable community for businesses and citizens alike. We are unhappy with the Mayor and the City Council. The Mayor has bypassed the City Charter on numerous occasions over the years and the Council has never held him accountable. We have been lied to about the budget and the state of the city by the Mayor and again, the Council has never held him accountable. They continue to approve budgets they know are not viable. We see other cities in the surrounding areas that are utilizing the latest technologies and we wonder why our city is so behind the times.
The name of our group is Dearborn Heights United Political Action Committee. Our purpose is to:
- promote and inform the electorate through non-partisan political education;
- increase the cause of good government through political participation;
- promote transparency, integrity and accountability in city government; and
- work for the election of qualified non-partisan city candidates to elected offices.
Some of the items we will be taking on are:
- new candidates for City Council;
- the deficit;
- city services; and
- ballot proposals.
Our goal is to better educate the voters of this city and encourage more people and our younger people to vote and to get involved. With our involvement, we also want to encourage HONEST transparency from this administration.
If you would like to learn more about us and our goals, please plan on attending our next meeting which will be held on Sept 8 at the IHOP at Ford Road and Telegraph. The meeting starts at 7:00 p.m.
In the meantime, our dues are $10 a year. They can be mailed to:
P. O. Box 715
Dearborn Heights, MI 48127-0715
Donations to the PAC are always welcome.
Won’t you join us? We look forward to seeing all of you there.
