Questions still go unanswered from Romulus City leaders

Once people are elected to serve in an elected position, they should be held accountable.

Gina Wilson Steward is still waiting for officials from the City of Romulus, Michigan to answer questions from the December 7th City Council meeting

We must hold our Elected Officials accountable for their decisions.

Detroit Goodfellows Delivering Holiday Cheer for More Than 100 Years

Wow! Do you remember getting those Goodfellows' boxes when you were a kid...... Now I think some cities give out Gift Cards.

What was in your box??

In 1914, a worker with the Internal Revenue Service in Detroit named James J. Brady happened to get a glance of a cartoon featuring a sad child who had been overlooked at Christmastime.
