People are disgruntled here, but they have a poor voting turnout record and petition signing record. When is the last time such a recall worked around town? These activities may have a greater affect on following elections than the recall.
Both Coleman Young Jr. and Tom Barrow are trying to gain traction. Young is baffled by his only getting about 3% in the last primary while Barrow thought he really did win the election and was bamboozled by Bing somehow. Can you say dog and pony show? It's more of a dog and dog show.

The people of Detroit are simply too ignorant to understand the whole process. Their main agenda is focused on "ME". What will this person do for "ME". They don't realize the entire development and overall function involved.

A similar issue is those who vote for a candidate because they believe or don't believe in abortion. The entire platform for that candidate could be completely against the voter, yet they will vote based on one criteria. THAT, is utterly asinine.

As for Bing, he's making bad decisions and as noted after the move and reminded in today's Freepress, the hiring of officials with a much higher and undeserving pay scale, yet, reducing transportation and drivers.

This city just can't seem to get out of it's problems.
