The 2017 Detroit Mayoral Election Campaign Has Officially Launched

Oh my, I guess the Detroit Mayoral Campaign for the 2017 General Election has officially launched.

You see, this is Detroit.

No one does politics like Detroit.

Detroit is on the international map.

Detroit has a long and sorrid history when it comes to public corruption and complex fraud schemes.

As Alexis Wiley, Mayor Duggan's chief of staff, considers this ad as false, I have provided, below, the actual SIGTARP subpoena, issued on my birthday and have also embedded links to the articles from the Detroit News, Detroit Free Press, and MLive, for futher discrimination and/or verifications of the "assertions" about incumbant Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan's activities with the Detroit Land Bank Authority made by the Save Our City Super PAC in support of Coleman Young, II's candidacy for Mayor of Detroit.

I would be remiss in failing to mention the "conjugally collaborative" ongoing federal investigations of Wayne County and the State of Michigan.

But, hey, what do I know?

Stay tuned.  The election is November 7, 2017.

Video: Young's Campaign Spot Rips Duggan, Compares Him to Corrupt Kwame Kilpatrick

Update: Tuesday, 5:05 p.m. -- Alexis Wiley, Mayor Duggan's chief of staff, issued a statement in response to the ad:
"This ad is totally false. This is the kind of vile stuff we've come to expect from this campaign. We are disgusted by it but not surprised."

From Earlier this Afternoon
State Sen. Coleman A. Young II, considered an underdog in his election bid for mayor of Detroit, has produced a scathing 30-second commercial with only weeks to go in the campaign, comparing his opponent Mayor Mike Duggan to the corrupt ex-Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, who is serving 28 years in prison for public corruption.
"Kwame Kilpatrick went to prison for rigging city contracts," the commercial begins. "So what's the difference between him and Mike Duggan who also admitted to rigging city contracts? A federal grand jury in Detroit has subpoenaed records and officials from the Detroit Land Bank Authority and from the city housing demolition program. A former high ranking police official also has been indicted for taking bribes from tow truck owners.  
When will the corruption stop? 
Why does Duggan get a pass while Kwame Kilpatrick goes to jail for 28 years?
It's as simple as black and white.
It's Young's first campaign ad, which he plans to run on Fox 2, WADL-TV, WHPK-TV and on cable.
Federal authorities investigating city hall, to date, have not accused Duggan of any wrongdoing.
The ad is paid for by "Save Our City Super PAC." 

Young and Duggan are set to debate Oct. 25. The general election is Tuesday, Nov. 7.

Voting is beautiful, be beautiful ~ vote.©
