There are 11 candidates running for Dearborn Heights City Council what do we know about where they stand on some of the very important issues in our City? I know it’s early or so everyone keeps saying but the primary election is August 8 and before you know it election day is here. On that day responsible voters will be going to the polls or already voted by absentee ballot. As responsible voters, we should know where any given candidate we are voting for stands on some major issues in the City. Here are just three issues in our City there’s much more and you if you decided to run know this or should. At some point, I want to hear from the candidates on these and other issues in our City.
- The outsourcing of 911 dispatch as a candidate are you for or against moving our 911 dispatch? Do you know the particulars around this issue?
- Warren Vally Golf Course what do you know about this subject? As a taxpayer do you think the City should buy this property? Why or why not?
- Old Orchard Pond (privately owned) do you agree or disagree that the City should pay for the clean-up of this pond? Have you followed this issue in the City?
These are just three issues that are in the City it’s up to each candidate to understand them and decide what side they stand on. If elected to a seat on the Council these issues will come before you to vote on. It’s important to understand the history of each of these subjects know the who, the how, and the why. There are back stories to everything in this City make it your business to know those stories. Make it your business to ask the questions. Do your research and most of all understand how the residents feel about these issues.
