Better that Cockrel goes back to the council where he is more effective.

Here's hoping Bing is truly prepared to lead a whacked city council.

I think that this is hopeful. Shows that the residents are fed up for the business-as-usual mentality that has plagued the city for decades and are ready for change. It is my understanding that the entire city council is up for re-election, some are saying many will have difficulty winning the vote, despite being the incumbent; let's hope a fresh breeze blows into the council chambers as well.

Looks like the Bingster won -- no surprise as even I, fifty miles away, was uncomfortable having a crony of Kwame's in the Mayor's office, even temporarily.

Hopefully more suburbanites can take over city government because Detroit does not need business as usual.

Detroit needs more than good leadership. It needs good followers to follow good leadership.
