Robert Davis filing charges against the city of Troy for corruption, what a laugh. This is the same man that was charged with multiple counts of embezzling money from Highland Park schools, setting up phony nonprofits, and who knows what eles.

Guess who Davis' best buds are? Dan Brake, Glenn Clark and Bob Gosselin? In fact, Brake was feeding information to Davis' attorney in court on Wednesday that may have helped this latest fictitious suit. Birds of a feather???? And Brake wants to be Mayor of the same city he so willingly would sue? What's wrong with this picture?

Sounds like guilt by association. Being charged with a crime is not the same as being as being convicted. Some charges are filed by prosecutors for political reasons. Where there is smoke, there is sometimes a smokebomb and not a fire. I supported Rocky for Congress because I actually knew him and what he had done to support people I know and care about. I believe this man of integrity later won his case against the person who sued him, but that didn’t prevent his political opponents from using it to smear him and help their candidate stay in office. Typical tactic from the Left. Your comments make me want to consider Dan Brake if he decides to run for mayor. Smearing someone out of the blue (nothing in the article about this) by a loose connection with another person of the conservative political persuasion is a high endorsement, coming from people using initials and a common first name. Thanks for that, and thanks for the neutral information on the election preparations, Jen.

You need to vote for a person for mayor who fits the city charter and is not a partison or be willing to quit all partison connects while mayor . Most of all throw all literature in the trash and find out who they really are by looking at past activities.
