Why we worry
Brenda Jones and George Cushingberry are dangerous and the absolute worst to have at the helm of council. Jones is JoAnn Watson’s twin and the other is no better than Kwame Kenyatta. Both are unreasonable obstructionists who only represented themselves and not the will of the majority of people.

Can't please 'em all
I think Councilman George Cushingberry should have said nothing. like Councilwoman Brenda Jones did. But I think The News was wrong in bashing them before they did anything.
Can we at least give them a chance before the attacks began?

Detroit deserves better
Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. City Council has a chance to instill confidence that this is a new beginning, but when I read George Cushinberry’s comments I realized that for all the years in office he did not realize what a precarious position he was put in. Detroiters deserve results, not antics and politics as usual.

Will it take a year?
Trying to predict what the council’s performance will be is like trying to predict what the Lions’ performance will be next season, based on Day 1 of training camp. New players. New captains. New rules. Let’s revisit this question same time next year.
