Who do you think is paying for all of these imrovements in our Township? Who is bearing the burden? The taxpayers. He is being careless with OUR taxdollars, as a citizen of Redford, I would like to see a more transparent fiscal plan. Citizens in this community are not showing up at meetings, asking questions. The fireworks cost US more than $130,000. And it got rained out, couldn't this money have been invested in something that the community really needs, like a health clinic or something?????? Handy needs to quit......

It is funny to read some of the things in the post/comments. I really just wonder if folks go out in the township of just view it from a foggy window. In the last couple of years one could see so many great things going on. Economic issues in the state is very true, but check it out. New Mexican Rest opened its door, R & R Cae has opened,both of them on Five Mile. Botsford medical is under construction, Keg and wine's new building under construction, JC's has a new home on Beach Daly, Sandy's is expanding. the township has taken down the old house on Beach for a park. the old hospital on Beach will now be taken down. One person made a comment about the flowers! They are GREAT to see, The stain on the stone work on the walkways is nice and look now at the old stone walls are even getting a much needed change in color to red that will shape the outline of our township. I see more top brass out of the chairs of Town Hall and on the streets of our town then ever before. they are not sitting around waiting to put out fires, they are changing our town forever. If you really want to bash something, bash the times before now! Ask yourself one thing. What was all the money a few years ago being used for. I say that if one was to think about it real good, we have not had a leader able to take this town to the next level until now......I say push on my friends in the Township, Push on. Your doing a great job and we aplod you all for your hard work and effort in the what may go down in history to be hardest times Michigan has ever had. Redford is strong! and it will with stand the storm around it. In closing, I will and can only hope that every time you see Mr Handy walking in our town you would shake his hand and thank him for going the extra mile we needed to become a great town again.

Redford's finest are only entitled to that distinction when they acto honorably in instances that they don't then like the rest of us they need to purge out the bad and dust themselves off and seek to do better and do it openly...recently with the Detroit police officer smashing into someone's car and the subsequent complicity of the Redford police with this incident and what strongly smells like a deliberate cover-up until the smoke of public outrage subsides is tremendous reason for the public to tar and feather the police officers involved in this misbehavior...the only thing that has been said is that the matter is being investigated and the public is supposed to blindly trust that the matter is properly ajudicated...I can almost quarantee that nothing further will be said about this incident and those who bring it up will be harrassed and retalitated against...

How was it out of context? If summer time effected his supporters wouldn't that be true for the rest of the candidates? The absentee votes were mostly his but I guess the majority that did go and vote saw through the mess he has created and the problems that we must try and fix when he disappears come November.

i feel bad for the parents of these dumb white girls getting knocked up by these babboons and being forced into taking care of these ugly ass half breed babies. you had better teach your daughters that a foot of dick is not worth the next 20 years on state aid. black men want to do nothing more than sell drugs to get their money and sleep with anything that moves. they are being raised to steal and robb and be drug dealers. look at the schools in detroit, its a waste of time to try to teach the un teachable, they graduate less that 25 percent of their students but cry about how the schools have no money. the parents of these babboons should move back to africa so they can fit in there.

The typical family in Redford has gone from looking like a white father, white mother and 2.5 kids to a cracked out, weed-smoking,welfare-check cashing, food-stamp abusing, uneductated black mother whose unmarried. Of course, she'll have at least 5-6 kids by all different fathers born out of wedlock. Of her derelict kids, the younger of the lot will be setting fires, jumping innocent white kids, stealing bikes and breaking and entering local homes. The older girls will be getting knocked up so they can ride the welfare ticket to the bank; and, the older boys will be running about trying to locate some over-weight teenage, naive white-girl to get knocked up so they can abandon her and the kid as soon as its born. Some of you won't like what I say: Not because its socially/politically incorrect, but cause its THE DAMN TRUTH!

Didn't rip into me. They were run out of town and had problems with being a criminal just as you did. Could care less about property values either, my home has been paid for many years ago and what ever I get for it will be more than I paid anyway. When it's time,(meaning when criminals like you affect my well being) I will leave and retire on my golf course property in N. Carolina and watch and laugh at all the problems you are still dealing with.

Redford Township is not safe. The police give tons of tickets out for petty traffic violations that they pin on us. Just because lots of traffic violations are issused does not make a place safe. It makes a place that you wany to stay away from . I have had 3 traffic violations in Redford and failed to see video for any of them but was still held responsible for all of them so it basically the officers word against mind. Wow, how fair is that. When i saw the same officer that issued me my ticket going from zero to 70 in the departments charger leaving out of a local neighborhood park with no lights or sirens going, BUT Redford Township is safe . I guess if they say so.
