DETROIT (WWJ) – Members of Metropolitan Organizing Strategy Enabling Strength or “M.O.S.E.S.” staged a brief pray-in in lobby outside Mayor Dave Bing’s office on Tuesday.

Reverend Andy Carr told WWJ Newsradio 950 the group wants to speak with the mayor about city services.

“We have sent letters and things of that nature within the past to set up an appointment, to set up a schedule. No one has responded, so that’s why we have went to these drastic efforts,” Rev. Carr said.

The city’s poor bus service is chief among the group’s concerns.

“It is very bad right now. I’m having members who can’t even get to work, can’t even get to their probation officer.  We’re having to use the church bus and it just has gotten ridiculous,” he said.

“So, several clergy and several individuals from out in the community have come together. We just want to talk to the mayor so we can get some clarity,” Carr said.

The group was told Mayor Bing was not available but the Deputy Mayor eventually did come out and talk with them.
