Detroit Mayoral Candidates Face Off in a Debate on WADL-TV 38

DETROIT -- The run for Mayor is on its way, when WADL-TV 38 aired the Detroit Mayoral Debate last Tuesday evening with Kenneth Cockrel, Jr., Dave Bing, and Freman Hendrix. Panelists included Rich Fisher, as they asked the candidates questions on issues affecting the Motor City such as the declining economy, education, what each of them can bring to Detroit, what the role that if elected the Mayor should portray on them, and so forth.

Like newly President-elect Barack Obama, Bing believes that he represents a change and it must be fought hard to make that happen. Intergity and trust is important, he said, and Detroit must be taken care of first. "I think we have to depend on the people on who and why they voted for Mayor .... What my parents instilled in me and my siblings is the ability to tell the truth and have integrity, which is believed to be missing and can bring to Detroit."

Acting Mayor Cockrel, who supports urban, independent yet small and minority business owners, plans to make sure that they're being paid on time. However, he hopes to stay on as Mayor of Detroit to continue his crusade against crime and corruption -- cleaning up the problems that are plaguing our city.

"We need to improve public safety; we need to clean up the streets of Detroit and fight crime," he stated. "The future of Detroit must rest on family. We must make the city safe for seniors through fighting crime and employing police officers." Cockrel makes no plans of going away. "The city of Detroit is tough, but the Detroiters are even tougher," he responded.

Stating accountability must be held within the city government, Hendrix's platform involves being a Mayor that wakes up every morning on behalf of those in need, a Mayor for the people, a Mayor who is willing and able to help relieve the burden, and a Mayor for those who have no voice.

"We need a Mayor to stand up out loudly on the issue of education [school]," he commented. "When it snows outside, let's plow around the schools. The citizens of Detroit must be serve, no matter what."

The election for Mayor will be on February 24, 2009.
