M.L. Elrick Unveils Ethics Policy at the 2021 Mackinac Policy Conference

Mackinac Island — A former journalist running for a seat on Detroit City Council is calling for an overhaul of the city’s ethics board and more stringent financial disclosure rules for the legislative body. 

M.L. Elrick, who won a Pulitzer Prize for exposing public corruption, announced his run to represent Detroit’s District 4 in April laying out a platform of opportunity, safety and accountability. He faces off Nov. 2 against community advocate Latisha Johnson for a four-year term representing the east side district. 

Elrick’s call for change comes as members of the City Council are at the forefront of a federal investigation involving Detroit towing operations in what amounts to the broadest public corruption probe in the eight years since former Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick was convicted of racketeering conspiracy.

Your city council member should be willing to take a stand, make hard calls, and solve problems that directly impact Detroiters. I'm the only District 4 candidate doing that for you.
