Downtown Detroit Supports DeVos by Akindele Akinyemi


This morning I walked with the DeVos for Governor campaign. Of course Dick DeVos showed up along with Detroit Regional Coordinator Yvette Robinson. For months I have been promoting Dick DeVos and the reasons why he is the best choice for governor. This morning, I got a up close and personal view of that this morning.

Along with DeVos was daughter Elizabeth and son Ryan (his wife, Betsy, came out later). Torion Bridges, the 19 year old boy wonder, who is running for Wayne County Commissioner in District 7, was present along with Chad Miles, who is running for the 14th Congressional District.

This journey started around 8:00AM when supporters of DeVos were met with hostility from the Granholm camp. All this man is trying to do is turn Michigan around fiscally. They told his wife and children to go back to Grand Rapids. Some even told the supporters F--- DeVos B-----.

But yet, you want to support a woman who cannot bring jobs to the state, uses her past history to promote herself in front of voters, someone who is against educational options and lies about the changing conditions in Michigan.

The above photo is Dick DeVos and I engaging in a heavy dialogue on diversity in the workforce and expanding educational choice in Michigan.

Dick DeVos speaking with Chad Miles on businesses in Dearborn.


Dick is a man of his word. You can see him talking to voters who will support him in the upcoming elections. This man was talking about how high unemployment in the city is and how he just recently lost his job.



This guy would not shake Dick's hand because he is a Democrat and he does not trust Republicans. His wife, who was sitting next to him, cut into his ass like butter. She told him he should at least listen to what Mr. DeVos has to say instead of being rude. She wanted to hear Dick's message.



You can see Dick talking to some of the choir members from Wayne State University. Dick is a very appraochable and these students will support DeVos for Governor.


Dick is asking the choir are they ready to go to work? The Choir shouts out YES!!! This is the type of energy that is needed in Michigan.


Dick is talking to more on-duty police officers. Since Granholm has cut 1500 police officers crime has risen in most core urban centers across the state. Dick will place more officers back on the streets to keep us safe.


This asshole shouted out at Dick as we were crossing the street. He told Dick not to privitize jobs. Meanwhile, these union people are making money hand over foot and wasting millions on half ass work yearly.


Dick DeVos being interviewed by the Detroit Free Press.


Who said Dick DeVos did not support Black owned businesses? You can see Dick talking to a business owner telling him to keep up the good work.


Dick is talking to one young lady encouraging her to start her own business and keep up the good work. DeVos would like more young African Americans to start their own businesses. By eliminating the Single Business Tax this would become a reality without taxes killing small businesses.


DeVos being interviewed by Rachel Bianco of Local 4 News. Ms. Bianco even asked me why I was wearing my "I am a Black Republican" T-shirt.



Dick DeVos speaking to more Detroit Police officers in Downtown Detroit.

While Granholm was up on the Mackinac Bridge running fo her life in this race DeVos was down here in the trenches, talking to African Americans left and right. He is concerned about the educational plight of African Americans, concerned with Black men living in poverty and even told me if he is elected as the next governor that he will do everything to expand jobs in the educational arena.

This is why he must win. He has won already. I am just waiting for the final numbers to come down on November 7, 2006.

I guess your statement is misleading and more of illusionary republican propaganda. Downtown Detroit Supports Devos??? How could downtown detroit support devos when there are no majority voting neighborhoods downtown. A majority of the people who work downtown do not live within the city limits. Nice photo op, while you were edifying your upline was he Amway Brainwashing you my bad whats the name of his company Amway,Quixtar,Alticor??? How is he going to bring jobs to michigan when his scamway products are made in china? And most of the scamway products are purchased by distributors themselves which put them in debt. Does you believe that we are going to all become amway distributors where the average yearly salary is $1074 per year. Dick Devos has no political seasoning besides payoffs,bribes and kickbacks his pyramid companys track record has a high dropout rate, (similar to his record in public office when he walked away from 2 elected positions), low average incomes and lawsuits from competitors, regulators and its own distributors. Don't give up your education, your hopes and ambitions, to follow a rainbow.Being a dreamer and making those dreams come true does not mean becoming a con artist, losing your conscience, using and brainwashing people and sacrificing your morals and values. All of his platform sounds too good to be true, it probably is too good to be true.

Oh you mean the company that a majority of our people are building their small businesses off of because your governor cannot produce jobs for educated people like us who are going to school to better our lives?

How is he going to bring jobs to michigan when his scamway products are made in china? And most of the scamway products are purchased by distributors themselves which put them in debt.

Meanwhile, 29,000 jobs were lost under Granholm's watch. Honda went to Indiana. Most of the educators have left and gone to either ohio or north carolina.

Dick Devos has no political seasoning besides payoffs,bribes and kickbacks his pyramid companys track record has a high dropout rate, (similar to his record in public office when he walked away from 2 elected positions), low average incomes and lawsuits from competitors, regulators and its own distributors.

Wow, that sounds like some union hard talk. It was the teacher unions that prevented me from getting a job in the school system. It was YOUR union people that preveted young people with Masters degrees in educational leadership to move up the leadership ladder in DPS because so many old people who have been there for over 30 years will not retire. They are cock blocking us and when we want to expand educational options in this region we are blocked by Granholm? And I should vote for her?

Being a dreamer and making those dreams come true does not mean becoming a con artist, losing your conscience, using and brainwashing people and sacrificing your morals and values. All of his platform sounds too good to be true, it probably is too good to be true.

And Granholm has left Black people in the dust. What has Granhom done for Blacks in Detroit or ANY urban center in Michigan? She will bloack us from educational options yet promote failing Detroit public Schools. She blocks educators moving up the leadership ladder and now its hard for us to even find a job as a adjunct professor at a community college.

I can go on. DeVos has created jobs for people in Michigan. I have been following him for the last 10 years. Granholm is an attorney who was created from ed mcnamara's camp. She cannot create jobs and it getting harder in Michigan with my degree.
