Now another race I have been observing is the heated race that is going on in Livonia, Michigan.
Jack was our Livonia Mayor for two four-year terms. As a result of term limitations, his term ended December 31, 2003.
He accomplished much in his eight years in office, and by any measure was one of Livonia’s most successful Mayors.
Especially noteworthy of Jack’s accomplishments are:
- The Livonia Recreation Center: Jack Kirksey and Mike Duggan organized a citizens committee co-chaired by Terry Godfroid-Marecki who worked to make the Center a reality.
- Road improvement program: A ten-year road and sidewalk improvement program which started under Jack’s administration, which will result in all Livonia roads being restored to a good condition.
- Advanced Life Support Service: Jack worked with our firefighters to bring advanced life support services to our City.
- Upgraded City of Livonia’s Bond Rating: Jack and his staff worked successfully to renegotiate the Standard and Poors bond rating for our city. The City of Livonia was upgraded to a AA Credit Rating, which allowed Jack to renegotiate our city bonds resulting in a savings of more than two million dollars.
The person who is opposing this great man is Maureen Miller-Brosnan. She is a flunkie of the Granholm team.
You see Gov. Granholm has her hand in this race because most people in Livonia vote Republican. She is trying to seize control of one of the largest Republican bases in Wayne County. If Livonia becomes Democratic it will turn into another Detroit. Guaranteed. Your neighborhoods will become slums, your crime will rise to astronomical proportions and you will be paying taxes like never before.
In fact take a look at both candidates:
|Mayor of Livonia|| |
|Municipal Administrative Experience|| |
|Managed staff, programs and budget|| |
40 years experience
|Granholm Tax Increase|| |
|Fighting for Livonia Jobs||OPPOSES Granholm effort to move 2,500 jobs at Quicken loans from Livonia to Detroit||Granholm Appointee/Campaign Spokesperson|
|Creating Jobs|| |
Co-chaired initiative creating 6,000 jobs and $500 million in Livonia investments
|OPPOSED this initiative by casting a Council NO vote|
|Northeast Livonia Clarenceville Renovation Project|| |
Has specific plan to fill vacant industrial and retail space without raising taxes, consulting with regional economic leaders
|Wants to use volunteers to clean up property|
|Local Bus Service|| |
SUPPORTED opt out of SMART Bus system, saving taxpayers millions with enhanced services for seniors
|OPPOSED opting out of the little used, high tax SMART bus system|
|Cable Competition|| |
SUPPORTED cable competition as Mayor
|She and Joe Laura killed cable competition in 1999|
|Free Wireless Internet Livonia|| |
SUPPORT: Is leading a free wireless Internet Livonia, saving residents fees while stimulating business and attracting new residents
|OPPOSES initiative, questioning technology used successfully in other communities|
If you want to keep you way of life intact I highly recommend you elect Jack Kirksey for Mayor. Also, do not forget to vote for Laura Toy for City Council. Otherwise, Livonia will look like Detroit in less than 5 years.
In Indianapolis, Indiana Greg Ballard is running for Mayor against Mayor Bart Simpson (sorry, I mean Bart Peterson). Greg is a man if complete integrity and believes in re-establishing strong family values for residents in the City of Indianapolis.
We have to get rid of Bart Peterson. My sister, Attorney Darla Williams, is reporting the following madness:
There are reports all over town that Mayoral Candidate Greg Ballard's signs are being stolen and replaced with Mayor Bart Peterson's sign.
Corruption is supreme in Marion County Democratic politics.
Watch your signs and take pictures or video of those stealing them.
Peterson has to go, he's a thug just like Monroe Gray and Ron Gibson, a rich THUG.
It's a shame the rich millionaire white boy never got to know blacks well enough to distinguish the good ones from those suited up and polished from peashake and dope money.
He doesn't' have ANY decent black folks on this team and the are ruining our neighborhoods.
And that is true about how Peterson has brushed off the black community. Meanwhile, blacks continue to vote for Democratic leadership that has failed us.
In fact, Mayor Peterson has bought off so many black pastors in Indianapolis that it is no wonder the Circle City is headed towards the direction of Detroit in terms of the quality of life.
Thanks to Mayor Bart Peterson--he has segregated City Hall, refuses to assist or protect constituents who are unfortunate enough to have black representatives who turns out to be a rogue, or against city attorneys and employees who call pastors niggers, black attorney's Willie Lynch’s nephew, and constituents "bitches, whores and dykes."
Yes people, the Mayor of Indianapolis (who is a white Democrat) is calling our black women these names. Where is the Indianapolis Branch of the NAACP?
Of course I am never surprised to see the sexism in our black churches. But Atty. Williams is pissed off of the fact that so many black pastors have allowed Bart Peterson to get away with this.
White Democrats always know where to go to buy a bulk of the black vote. The churches. Meanwhile, under Peterson's leadership race relations have worsened. I would like to know that the Indianapolis Branch of the NAACP is saying about this chicanery going on in their city.
There you have it. Get out there and vote this coming Tuesday.
