It is not appropriate to always compare detroit to other cities. In many ways detroit has been on life suppott. San diego is a whole different city. Detroit has too many employees to begin with. The raises should never be given just on a whim. There r others cities in metro that need budget to be trimmed as well. Taylor,sterling heights to name a few. The tax payers shouldn't fund unneeded positions. As in wayne county , turkia mullins was overpaid double compared to other regions. Other positions were also.if a person feels underpaid let them go into private sector jobs. Not on tax payers dime.

It may not be your thing, but at least Turkia has nice bumps.

Only if you prefer the grandmotherly type. She may even be available as she divorced James 25 years ago. She just might be looking for a young stud such as yourself.

You must move from Cleveland to Clinton to be closer to the action in Detroit. Congratulations Phil(wink wink).
