Congresswoman Kilpatrick Survives to Fight Again...


Incumbent Congresswoman Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick narrowly held onto her seat for the 13th Congressional District yesterday, August 5. Ms. Kilpatrick won the hotly contested election by about 3 percentage points; in the 3-way race, her challengers, Mary Waters and Martha G. Scott, split the vote, which undoubtedly helped, as Ms. Kilpatrick collected just 39% of the votes cast.

In a post last Friday, I denounced and rejected the guilt-by-association smear tactics of one of the challengers; I hope that the voters of the 13th, which includes not only Detroit, but suburbs from the Pointes to Downriver realized that they were voting on Congresswoman Kilpatrick's record, not that of her son (to whom I will not link here--we know all about"The Scandal").

Now that the election is over, and the Congresswoman is almost assured of her seat for the next two years, it is our hope here that she will reward our support by working even harder for us; and that we, who live and work in Detroit and the surrounding suburbs, will continue to work with her to make Detroit better.

A "sister" blog, "What About Our Daughters", has another take on the election from a non-Detroiter's point of view...
