Write-In Candidate for Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan (in Middle)
In a massive “I was going to run, before removal, heck no I’m not going to be a write-in candidate and now I changed my mind moment“, the Detroit Free Press announced on Friday morning June 28th, former Detroit Mayoral ballot named candidate Mike Duggan will launch a write-in campaign.
Sounds confusing? Just try and follow this ever continuing story.Former Wayne County
Prosecutor Mike Duggan appears to be a bit flip-floppy to say the least.

First, with Duggan’s candidacy, his name was scheduled to appear on August 6th primary ballot. Then based a rightful challenge on residency, by Detroiter and fellow candidate for Mayor Tom Barrow with the City Charter, it did not.
Now, in our opinion a write-in candidacy is exactly what Duggan should have done once finding out he did NOT meet Detroit City Residence Requirements. Instead a choice was made by either Duggan or his campaign staff to drag his clear failure on meeting Detroit Charter Residency Requirements in unnecessary Court fight — costing time and money. The latest word is that Mike Duggan has changed his mind again and will be a write in candidate.
All of the above drama would be down right hilarious to an outsider looking in, except for the fact Detroit as a City designed for its residents to prosper, grow and excel within are being used as pawns in this drama.
So what is going on here? Lets’ think about it.
Former City Council Member Pro-Tem Gary Brown, just took at $200K plus per year salaried job to work with, guess who Kevin Orr as a “Deputy Emergency Manager. Another City Council member Kwame Kenyatta resigned on June 19th, due to health issues and utter disgust with a unelected form of management nearly leaving the elected City Council, powerless.
Now for a Phil Collins moment in the song “Air of the Night”. Listen to the lyrics.
Again, something weird is going on here and Detroit’s Residents would be wise to TAKE NOTICE.
