$750,000 to be Mayor of Detroit?

$750,000 is how much money a candidate probably needs to be a "serious threat" for this election, according to a political consultant quoted in the Detroit News*.

$750,000 = 93,750 meals on wheels for seniors**. 

How do you think money should be spent? Which is a better use of the money: helping seniors live independent lives or on some obnoxious TV ads and some signs that litter up Detroit? I'm a thrifty little woman with a keen sense of budgeting and of how human beings should treat each other. If people have that kind of money to donate to a political campaign, it would be better donated to helping people. I, like a lot of people, feel that politics is out of control and this is just one example. Its time to take Detroit out of the hands of politicians and back into the hands of the community.

  1. We need a major change in campaign elections , we need to limit the amount of money that can be spent on election campaigns
