Another Awful Federal Response the DRIC

An opportunity for economic growth is slipping away.
We should strongly lobby our Federal Elected Officials...Congressman Hanson Clark, Senator Levin, etc.,...on the DRIC!.....Let our Fed level elected reps. represent MI and SWD, let them help get our "People's Bridge"/DRIC with our CBA... It's obvious that we need their help since the Republican controlled MI State Senate are going to continue their stalling tactics when our MI Workers and MI Companies could be working on the People's Bridge/DRIC!!! All of the desperately needed MI jobs that would made available to our State are being stonewalled and we must remind the elected reps at the State level but also at the Fed level that the People's Bridge/DRIC = Helping Put MI Back to Work and that DRIC, the People's Bridge will be a economic stimulus project that will get MI Working again! Putting MI Workers and MI Companies back to work will help to spread and circulate throughout MI, boosting, supporting our other small businesses as MI Workers are put back to work, helping more MI families put food on their tables, MI Workers spending hard earned DRIC Dollars will help to stimulate our MI Economy! The "People's Bridge"/DRIC is a no-brainer.......Stop the politics and let's DEMAND that our Elected State & Federal Reps. put MI Workers Back to Work via DRIC...The People's Bridge!

We're not certain about protocol, but we suspect that it's not exactly kosher for a reporter to be sending information to a judge regarding a case being heard.

There is a BZA hearing for 1236 Michigan Ave. (the building between
the Lager House and the Lodge). The building owner (Bruce Beresh) is

The City of Detroit's Municipal Parking Department probably gets cursed more often then praised, but its recent donation to a Corktown park could help them earn a few huzzahs.
