Dear Friends, Neighbors, and Advocates
Please call your Congresswoman, Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick, and ask her why she is giving the Ambassador Bridge Company our hard-earned money, our tax dollars. Cheeks Kilpatrick has asked for $3,000,000 to be paid to the Detroit Port Authority for the reconstruction of Clark and Fort Streets to accommodate truck traffic. The Port of Detroit is run by the Ambassador Bridge Company, and the relocation of Fort Street is not for the benefit of our community. These projects only serve to make billions of dollars of income for the Ambassador Bridge Company.
Meanwhile, our children are developing asthma and we are all being choked out of our community by increased truck traffic and emissions. Southwest Detroit deserves respect form those who do business here.
Congresswoman Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick and let her know how you feel about YOUR tax dollars being used to fund these projects.
and call Detroit office
let others know, too
