Dearborn State of the City Announced for March 5

The public is welcome to attend Mayor Jack O'Reilly's address, to be held at Dearborn City Hall.

The 2012 State of the City address will take place March 5, the city of Dearborn confirmed Friday.

The public is invited to attend the address by Mayor Jack O'Reilly, which will start at 7 p.m. in the City Council Chambers at Dearborn City Hall.

According to the City of Dearborn newsletter, "Mayor O’Reilly will review the economic challenges facing Dearborn, the city’s recent accomplishments and initiatives to keep the community moving forward."

Last year's city-wide address by O'Reilly focused on growth initiatives–such as the Intermodal Train Station and University of Michigan-Dearborn student housing–as well as the $20 million budget deficit facing the city, and how to fix it.

For those who cannot attend, the address will be shown at a later time on CDTV and will also be posted on the City of Dearborn's website.

Full coverage of the address will also be posted on Dearborn Patch the evening of the event.

I would imagine that the state of the city should be pretty good for the mayor and his ilk. After all, they got that tax increase to support them for the next 5 years and beyond.

Marooned, in consideration of your feelings and well-being, perhaps you should just move out of Dearborn?

Dear DG, I will bust a move in my good time. I have nothing against those who want to engage in financial masochism with artificially elevated taxes, on depressed real properties. I am NOT a masochist, so have a fun time.

This idea that critiscm of the mayor is counterproductive and to just move is to easy. Rather than answer for his poor stewardship of our city the mayor and his cronies just dismiss the failures, and the people who hold him accountable. Everything is not always going to be positive and when you close parks and libraries and then attempt to build bike trails,reduce taxes on well connected corporations , and then raise them on homeowners people will get angry
