Meet Detroits’ Next Mayor Geoffrey Fieger

Yes We’re Calling it years ahead of the election – Geoffrey Fieger WILL BE Detroits’ Next Mayor.

and because of him money will start to flow in the city again. the citizenry will once again be happy and taxes will be paid. there will less of a deficit and of course the main issues that are most on the minds of Detroiters will be finally put to rest.

  • April 15, Freep.com: “I could turn it around in five minutes,” Fieger said.

    “I’d shovel the snow and I’d clean the streets and parks. Then, I’d tell the police department to leave marijuana alone and don’t spend one dime trying to enforce marijuana laws. I also would not enforce prostitution laws and I’d make us the new Amsterdam.”

    “We would attract young people,” Fieger said. “You make Detroit a fun city. A place they want to live and they would flock here.”

  • He will not sell the water system. He will make hella deals with the suburbanites to get access; as they already do. only under Fieger will the Detroit Water Commission ever get the rates from the suburbanites that they truly deserve.
  • He will decriminalize most petty victimless crimes. Mostly because he sees how it will help restore police presence to real crime. he also realizes that spending police time clogging up the court with little cases won’t solve the major crimes that are occurring daily in the D.

As an attorney, Geoffrey Fieger represents many of the victims of that crime; so he is intimately aware of the details and depth of the crime issue.  he is also smart enough to know that every crime can’t take jail space ;and that criminals can be valuable to the community in return for their crimes.

This is one of his strong points – he is a reformer, instead of an industrialist. Detroit Needs Reforms, and Implementation of Stronger Policies for control of resources.

This is why we know he is going to be the next mayor.  by calling it this far in advance no doubt someone will think that we’ve got an inside track.

Yeah we do. we LIVE IN The D. That’s the reality that folks in the D are talking about. folks like Fieger because he’s a winner. he’s also friendly with people in the city. unlike the present administration – Dave Bing.

Take a moment and read this recently published piece and then remember when Fieger is sworn in, where you heard that he would be mayor. On BadGalsRadio.com. cause you know we call the shots..

Geoffrey Fieger: If I was mayor of Detroit, I’d stop enforcing marijuana and prostitution laws

Southfield attorney Geoffrey Fieger said last year that he’d like to run for mayor of Detroit.  This week, he changed his mind but offered a glimpse at what the city might look like if he were in charge.

April 15, Freep.com: “I could turn it around in five minutes,” Fieger said.

“I’d shovel the snow and I’d clean the streets and parks. Then, I’d tell the police department to leave marijuana alone and don’t spend one dime trying to enforce marijuana laws. I also would not enforce prostitution laws and I’d make us the new Amsterdam.”

“We would attract young people,” Fieger said. “You make Detroit a fun city. A place they want to live and they would flock here.”

Fieger, former Democratic nominee for Michigan governor, has never been one to shy away from controversial or bold ideas. But beyond his usual bluster, Fieger’s suggestions for Detroit are not necessarily as far-out as you might imagine.

Detroit voters nearly had the chance to vote on a form of marijuana legalization last year, but in a controversial move, the Detroit Election Committee rejected the ballot proposal at the recommendation of the city’s Law Department.

The Coalition for a Safer Detroit, a group that pushed the proposal and collected more than 6,000 supporting signatures, argued Detroit police have more pressing concerns that marijuana use.

“In a time of diminishing tax revenue and limited resources, Detroit law enforcement must focus on crimes which have a direct impact upon people and property in the community,” read the pitch on their website.

Heck, even columnist Nolan Finley of the traditionally-conservative Detroit News recently called for the state of Michigan to legalize pot rather than sort out it’s confusing medical marijuana law.

“Give it up. Stop wasting taxpayer money in a futile fight to keep marijuana away from the people who want to use it,” Finley wrote. “If current trends continue, most pot users will soon have a license to smoke anyway.”

Fieger’s prostitution proposal would probably be a tougher sell, no matter how mundane the world’s oldest profession appears on “Hung.” That said, our own Darrell Dawsey stimulated an interesting conversation on the topic last year in the wake of the “Miami Companions” bust in Detroit.

“Why should women like this have to run the risk of being attacked and left feeling like they have no legal recourse because they were doing ‘illegal” business?’” he wrote. “Why should any of these people have to wear some stain simply because we can’t get over our own fake sense of morality about what’s obviously a victimless crime? And why shouldn’t we be taxing any business that’s raking in $4 million?”

Mayor Dave Bing, of course, has his own bold plans for the city. But the Detroit Works Project is more Youngstown than Amsterdam and, to be sure, will not include the legalization of marijuana or prostitution.

Remember That Name – because you’ll be hearing it a lot very soon,
