My name is Anthony Adams and I want to be your next mayor.
On November 2, 2021, Detroiters will be asked to go to the polls to elect their next mayor. Aside from Coleman A. Young’s election in 1973, no poll in history will have more influence over the future of our city. With the direction of billions of dollars, allocation of public resources, reparations and tax policy at stake, Detroiters need to understand that they hold the key to their future. The choice is theirs to make.
Over the last eight years, we have lost more than 90,000 of our family members who have moved out of the city. Whether it’s through tax foreclosure, water shutoffs, utility shutoffs, overassessments, or gentrification, people have been negatively impacted by the policies of this administration. We need a mayor who understands that when you cut someone’s water off, you impact the stability of the family; when you over assess and tax someone out of their home, you have impacted a family’s to gain generational wealth; that when you fail to contract with black companies, you are not strengthening the business fabric of our city; when you don’t meet with community leaders on a regular basis, you lose contact with the desires of city residents.
I am committed to improving the quality of life of the average Detroiter. Whether it’s by adopting creative ways to intervene before crime occurs, improving programs designed to keep residents in their homes; stopping the flooding of our neighborhoods, creating meaningful programs for our seniors, and assisting our next generation of leadership, I will lead with integrity and a commitment to restoring the respect that our residents deserve. We have the ability to dramatically transform the lives of those who we love; but only if we get out and vote. Let’s make a future that our children can be proud of. They are counting on you, and so is the future of Detroit.
Yours for a better Detroit,
