Quotes

"That does not mean people who represent areas outside of Detroit will not have to explain a vote to send money to Detroit -- again. But it's something that's really going to be about sharing the information about why it was an important vote and why it matters to everyone, even people who live hundreds of miles away."
"It was a difficult time," he said. "I spent all of my life doing the right thing so that I could avoid the position where I'm an adult without a job living at my parents' house."
"It just hurts me to see this happen," said Jordan. "The people in the city of Detroit, we're not all bad. Most of us want to show you love. What happened was 100% wrong and needs to stop. They had no excuse for doing this and they had no right to take the law into their own hands. What are we going to do to stop this?"
"This is much needed for what's going on in our city" Councilman Andre Spivey said during Tuesday's council session
