Coleman Young II Introduces Himself to Wyandotte

Due to redistricting, Wyandotte will become part of the state Senate's 1st District, which Young now represents.

Because of redistricting plans approved last year by Gov. Rick Snyder, Wyandotte will become part of the state Senate's 1st District.

That district is currently represented by state Sen. Coleman Young II, who attended Monday night's City Council meeting to introduce himself to the community.

The 1st District includes Ecorse, Gibraltar, Grosse Ile, River Rouge, Riverview, Trenton, Woodhaven and Wyandotte, along with parts of Brownstown and Detroit.

The terms of state senators don't expire until 2014, at which time the new districts will take affect. A November 2014 election will decide who represents the new 1st District as of Jan. 1, 2015. Until then, Wyandotte remains in the 8th District with state Sen. Hoon-Yung Hopgood.

Senator Young is one great guy. Raised mainly in California with his Mom Ann Ivory Calvert, Coleman has multiple degrees and has served the People of his State House and now Senate District with distinction. We will have a fighter for Downriver who is comfortable in any room as any room is totally comfortable with him. He will be at the Wyandotte Democratic Club picnic Saturday, July 7th, come down and see and talk to him, you will develop an affinity for the man as all of us have in the 13th District meetings where we see him regularly. His Mom will be around also, a Lady of Class and sweet as can be. Look forward to Coleman being our Senator, it will be good for our City!

Is he anything like his namesake? I certainly hope not.
