 Tuesday, August 16 the Detroit Elections Commission, Council President Brenda Jones, Corporate Council Melvin “Butch” Hallowell and City Clerk Janice Winfrey, moved forward the People’s Community Benefits Ordinance along with the ‘Enhanced’ Ordinance.

Both will be on the ballot in November. The People’s CBO was designated as Proposal A and the ‘Enhanced’ Ordinance will appear as Proposal B.

Detroiters in support of the People’s CBO packed the Election Commission Meeting and spoke passionately about the importance of following the Democratic process and moving the People’s CBO forward.

We want to thank and congratulate those who have supported and worked relentlessly for real Community Benefits in Detroit! Moving the People’s CBO toward the ballot has been a tremendous effort and an important act of citizen-led democracy on display with over 5000 Detroiters signing the petition over an 8 week period. In the face of voter suppression and suspension of democracy, the right of community to organize around an issue and move it to the ballot has become one of the last vestiges of the democratic process accessible to everyday Detroiters.

Read them for yourself!
