Anticipation is beginning to build as the stage is being set for one of the most sought after debates connected to a solution on what can be done to help the Detroit City crisis.
The eyes of the country have been monitoring the steady but slow progress as leaders try to put the city back on its solid gold steering wheel. Detroit, with residents in tow, is in a desperate need to climb out of financial ruin and an undeserved reputation for various forms of calamity. Detroit made front page news after filing bankruptcy under the massive weight of staggering debt.
Tonight, the focus will be on what it takes to repair the historically rich city as the search for a promising Mayor is sought in a Mayoral Debate that will take place at The Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit. The live debate will be televised on WADL TV 38 at 8pm Tuesday, July 30th with 11 candidates all vying for votes to bring the city back to luster.
The debate is open to the public with indoor and outdoor accommodations made to sustain the hundreds expected to gather in an effort to find a remedy. With each passing day, Detroiters grow increasing hopeful that the true essence to the cities problems is Biblical and that it will take heavenly solutions to end the debacle.
“Owe no man any thing, but to love one another; for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law” Romans 13:8.
Kelly T. of Detroit says, “I pray that Detroit has seen the worst it will see, we need more Pastors and the church to help guide us, we are a praying, hopeful city?”
“I pray for Detroit but if the leaders that put the city in the mess we’re in don’t repent, you can hope all you want, that’s not how God works.” James S. of Detroit went on to say, “but I do think prayer works!”
The Detroit Mayoral Primary is scheduled for Tuesday, August 6th. The top two leaders from that primary will face off in the General Election in November. WADL will again step into the media frenzy coverage arena and air the debate with the top two frontrunners, on October 29th.
“I take pride in showing my commitment to the community by airing these important debates in Prime Time and Commercial Free. I am excited to be able to provide Detroiters with the chance to make an educated decision on who they vote for in this historical election,” said Kevin Adell, CEO of WADL TV 38.
Radio News powerhouse, WWJ Newsradio 950 will co-sponsor the debate and the stations morning anchor, Tom Jordan has been summoned as moderator.
Just because the motion of bankruptcy has been filed there are still vital dates on the stovetop to pay close attention to. August 19th is the deadline for motions against Detroit’s eligibility for Chapter 9 and a trial on the matter is set for October 23rd. A deadline is also set for March 1, for Detroit to file a plan of adjustment.
Check local cable providers for the station airing the program. The debate will also be available on line streamed from several sources.
