Detroit City Council
For the first time in about 100 years, Detroiters will be electing city council members by district when they head to the polls next month.
“I’ve found the strength to move on with my life despite a deliberate effort to destroy me,” says ex-Detroit City Councilman Charles Pugh.
The appellate opinion says the law “would chill a substantial amount of First Amendment-protected activity.”
With Detroit filing for bankruptcy, what affect will it have on the ability to attract business… and keep council staffers?
Saunteel Jenkins said there are reports of items missing from a division Charles Pugh oversaw.
Saunteel Jenkins is the legislative body’s new president.
The shape of Detroit’s financial future and city leadership could be determined in the week ahead.
A decision on whether to dismiss Charles Pugh from the Detroit City Council won’t come until next week.
“Now we need some closure, we need to understand what Charles’ plans are,” said fill-in council president Saunteel Jenkins.
The attorney for a mother who claims embattled Detroit City Council President Charles Pugh had an inappropriate relationship with her teenage son says the case is strikingly similar to that of convicted pedophile Jerry Sandusky.
