I just found out about this from a friend and it concerns me that this is such a well kept secret.

Erroneously reads, “District 4: The Community Advisory Council for District 4 has not yet been established in accordance with Section 9-102 of the Charter.”
Please correct this. I am assuming it will be procedural and non-controversial.
This other issue is a little more complicated…
Furthermore, the City Clerk has informed me that CAC candidates will not be in the primary since the Municipal Code specifies the next “General election.” This conflicts with the City Charter which says the candidates will be in the next election in which all Detroiters may vote. It also leaves open the possibility that 20 candidates will be on the ballot in the general election for only 5 seats; so the top five vote getters may have a very small percentage of the total vote. It would seem appropriate to have them in a non-partisan portion of the August primary ballot. It is customary to have all offices in the primary unless the number of candidates is so small that all would automatically advance to the general election.
So I urge the council to look into the possibility of amending this ordinance to include these candidates in the primary if there is sufficient time to do this.

This website is dedicated to raising public awareness about the new Community Advisory Council (CAC) in Detroit’s Fourth District. I am Scotty Boman, the petitioner whose efforts are responsible for creating the CAC. Since I already owned a website for my 2017 Board of Police Commissioner campaign, I decided to re-task it for the more timely purpose of informing people about this most recent addition to Detroit’s local government.
When the members of the council are elected, I hope they set up a website that belongs to the CAC. If it is a paid site they will need to obtain an EIN and set up a business account at a bank. They will need to be supported by voluntary donations. I know from experience that this isn’t very expensive. If they need any help I will be glad to lend a hand.
The receipt I was given upon filing the petitions is here:
