What to watch for at Detroit City Charter Commission meetings
There have been two public meetings of the new Detroit City Charter Commission. The meetings have been well attended by community members who have been vocal about their concern over external influence on the commission. The commission is currently determining how to organize themselves and developing the process to go about the important work of revising our city’s “constitution.”
- Watch for preference for proposals from corporate interest.
- Watch the process for submitting proposals. Demand transparency!
- Watch for efforts to thwart the commissions independence.
- Watch for efforts to muzzle the voice of community through paternalistic rules and sanctions.
The next Detroit Charter Commission Meeting will be Saturday, January 26 at 12pmS
DETROIT, MI 48213
