Emergency Manager, City of Detroit
Kevin Orr

Citizens of Detroit: Join us in calling for Detroit’s Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr to resign.

    1. Petition by

      Citizens of Detroit

Sign our petition at www.respectfordetroit.com and show that Detroiters, and all who support our great city, will not be insulted and demeaned by the self proclaimed “benevolent dictator.” Mr. Orr’s recent comments in an interview with the Wall Street Journal stating, “For a long time the City was dumb, lazy, happy and rich.“ were arrogant and callous. It is, without apology, possessing no sensitivity or a concern for the very people he has been “selected” to so-called manage.

      I was born and raised in the City of Detroit and for years a member of the NAACP. The fall of Detroit began so long ago when its population and government transitioned from "white to black". Coleman Young was not a dumb man but was met with much adversity from the suburbs and Michigan government. Because the cities population is perdominately black does not mean they are dumb, rather gets little or no support. IMO, if you don't know the history of Detroit and its downfall, move on. Get someone who cares.

      Our city needs to be reclaimed and come to glory from within, meaning the local residents participating and voicing their concerns and sharing innovative ideas. All eyes around the world are watching us return to greatness as the, Renaissance City continuing to making contributions like no other place with our rich heritage and history of music, diversity, fashion, labor...Let us continue forward with leadership upholding the ideals of a world-class city with accountabilty and intergrity. My family has been in Detroit from France since the 1700s and Poland from my mother's side-present and future generations continuing the legacy of community needs to implement plans now to make the necessary changes to maintain it's 300 year + of greatness and tradition.

      The Michigan emergency manager law is undemocratic, and is a ruse to hijack the city's assets.

      According to The Constitution People have The Right to Elect Their Government, as Opposed to Someone Appointing Who Governs Them.#absoluteruler#
