Don’t miss Deadline Detroit’s video with 63-year-old Detroit voter David Small, who is voting for the very first time in his life because he thinks Mayor Duggan is doing a great job:
With just a few days until Tuesday’s primary election, our campaign is moving full steam ahead.
As Rev. Baye Landy of The Black Slate said: “Mayor Duggan is getting things done right now for residents all across this city. Buses are running on time, our streets are lit up, parks are receiving much needed makeovers, grass is getting cut, street sweepers are out and I no longer have to worry if my trash will be picked up.”
On Monday, AFSCME Michigan Council 25 – one of the city’s largest unions, which represents public employees across Detroit and Wayne County – endorsed Mayor Duggan, saying he’s “the best choice to create jobs and good opportunities for all of our city’s working people.”
Other unions that collectively represent thousands of our city’s working families also support Mayor Duggan. They include the Metro Detroit AFL-CIO, Mechanical Contractors Association Detroit, Plumbers Local 98, the Greater Detroit Building and Construction Trades Council, Michigan Regional Council of Carpenters and Millwrights, Detroit’s top public safety unions, which represent Detroit police and firefighters, and UNITE HERE! Local 24, which represents thousands of hospitality workers across Detroit.
Mayor Duggan has also been endorsed by the Wayne County Democratic Black Caucus, Fannie Lou Hamer PAC, East Side Slate, more than 100 Detroit faith leaders and by the 13th Congressional District Democratic Party.
At the end of the day, the endorsement that matters most is yours. Make a plan now to vote in Tuesday’s mayoral primary election if you haven’t already.
The polls will be open across the City of Detroit from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. If you’re in line before the polls close, you’re still eligible to vote. You can also vote in-person by absentee ballot until 4 p.m. at the City Clerk’s office on Monday, August 7. If you have any questions about how or where to vote, please contact the city’s Department of Elections at 313-876-0190.
