CD13: Martha Scott runs for Congress

by: Eric B.

Mon May 12, 2008 at 12:59:00 PM EDT

( - promoted by Eric B.)

State Sen. Martha Scott made it official this morning ... she's challenging Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick for the 13th Congressional District.  From a Facebook page for this morning's press conference.

Now I have decided to take the next step. On Monday, May 12, I will announce my candidacy for Michigan's 13th Congressional District, representing Detroit, Ecorse, the Grosse Pointes, Harper Woods, Lincoln Park, River Rouge, and Wyandotte. I want to take my fight to protect our most vulnerable citizens, to create world-class educational facilities, and to see that all citizens are given fair and equal treatment to our nation's Capitol.

Ex-state Rep. Mary Waters had previously announced that she planned to run in the same race.  Kilpatrick hasn't faced serious opposition since she was elected to Congress in 1996.

She may as well
Scott gets term-limited out in 2010.  She may as well do it now while the brand name "Kilpatrick" is as low as it can get.  Today's Freep article about Kwame's nepotism won't help CCK.

I was suprised when I noticed last week that CCK has a huge billboard up on I-94.  She must be pretty concerned to make her spend the money.

Attn Detroiters
I was just wondering what the overall feeling was among citizens of Detroit on Monica Conyers.  Afterall, she could be the next President of the City Council.

Also, any idea why Detroit doesn't have a ward system? Has it ever?  

Success is not final, failure is not fatal. - Winston Churchill  

Attn Detroiters
Detroit had a ward/district system going back to the 1890s, but it became full of corruption.  However I do think that Detroit needs a ward/district system again. There is no one to answer to the voters for problems in their own neighborhoods.
