Macomb County has a kitty cam to promote adoption of the shelter's kittens. The live cam was pitched at the State of the County tonight, and Molly was brought out by the County Executive. Hopefully the cam brings not only entertainment, but also more kitten adoptions!
Tonie Larkins, an eighth-grader from South Lake Public Schools, and an Eastpointe resident, is a member of the Detroit Youth Choir. The group was featured on America's Got Talent, and placed second, only being bested by one act. The Eastsider wrote an article featuring Tonie.
Now that the City of Eastpointe has signed a Consent Decree (which included a Memorandum of Understanding) with the Department of Justice, and that Consent Decree has been approved by a US District Court Judge, it is time to implement Ranked-Choice Voting (RCV). On June 4, 2019, the City issued a Press Release.
The City is continually working on an education plan for ranked-choice voting. A website, www.VoteEastpointe.com has been put together to share informatoin as efficiently and effectively as possible. This video is also a quick explanation of the ranked-choice voting process. Also, the City put together a succint flyer describing ranked-choice voting.
