WE ARE CITY OF DETROIT
Detroit, nicknamed the Motor City, boasts of a rich automotive and cultural history as the hub of the American automotive industry and the birthplace of the Motown Sound. As the largest city in Michigan, Detroit in recent years has witnessed an influx of new residents and unprecedented economic development and reinvestment.
With nearly 680,000 residents, this Midwest city sits on an international border with Windsor, Ontario and attracts hundreds of thousands to its spectacular riverfront, parks, world-class cultural institutions and attractions, fine restaurants and wide variety of entertainment options.
Equally attractive are Detroit’s vibrant neighborhoods with considerable affordable housing options and strong community participation. While Detroit is known as a working city, its residents also like to play and are ardent supporters of the four professional sports teams that will all play in the city. The Motor City is a great place to live, work and play.
Two at-large members serve on City Council. Currently, the two at-large Council Members are Coleman A. Young II and Mary Waters.
Councilman Coleman Alexander Young II, 39, was elected Detroit City Councilman At Large with 48,358 votes on November 2nd 2021. He seeks to make Detroiters as proud of his service for them as he is proud to serve Detroiters.
For decades, Mary Waters has considered it an honor to serve the community. She has continually fought for Detroit and its citizens. She served 3 terms in the Michigan House of Representatives (2001 to 2006) and was the first African American female Democratic Minority Floor Leader.
