Position Statement on Flint Water and DWSD
KWA Pipeline Map
We support the decision of the Executive Leadership of Flint Michigan to continue to receive water from the Detroit Water Sewage Department. The Karegnondi project is an example of the result of using construction and financial resources for purposes other than improving the quality of life. The existing water lines from Detroit could have been extended to where the Karegnondi water line is now at a substantially cheaper price. An examination of the Karegnondi Pipeline Map, a simple one mile extension of the current DWSD water line along Wheeler Road was much shorter to build. The damage to City Of Detroit retirees behind this action of the State Appointed Emergency Managers can be reversed through methods of, but not limited to:
By using correct actuarial data, the figures used to create the bankruptcy will be recalculated from the point of the discrepancy. With this move our city will be officially free of State Financial Review Board oversight on December 31, 2017 at 11:59pm. During this transition the City will be able to pursue complete control of finances and, do something about rising health care costs. Copays for retirees and current employees will be reduced. Therefore I am asking you to support my fellow colleagues on Council in our efforts to right the wrong to City Employees and Retirees

The history of Johnson Center must be preserved! - Garden Homes Community Organization
" The Johnson Rec Center must remain as a center for the community because of the rich history and after listening to Dwight about how Sheldon Johnson, I think that was the name of the man who worked for the Recreation department who vowed another kid would not drown in a hole filled with rain water because in the 1950's there was no swimming pool facility, which resulted in two young black kids drowning. Neighborhood historian Dwight Smith said this scene was horrified for neighbors to watch as their bodies removed from this water filled-hole, excavating them using a pitch folk which caused their body to be damaged. Therefore, Mr. Johnson saw to it a swimming pool built, where Johnson Recreation now located, to prevent this from happening again. "
