Struggle For Control of Flint City Council Detailed in Interview
In an on-air radio interview, Saturday, November 10, 2018, three Flint City Council members expressed their views about their colleagues.
Ward 2 Councilman Maurice Davis, Ward 1 Councilman Eric Mays and Ward 5 Councilwoman Gerri Winfrey-Carter spoke specifically about councilwoman Kate Fields (4th Ward) and Councilwoman Eva Worthing (9th Ward) on the heels of a combative press conference which the latter two held on Nov. 8, 2018.
Councilpersons Mays, Davis, and Winfrey-Carter spoke about their belief that Fields and Worthing were only concerned about the citizens in their respective wards and not the City as a whole due to "class-ism/racism" and that other reasons included the upcoming council elections for President and various committee chairs this Monday Nov.12, 2018.
There was also mention of another of their colleagues, Santino Guerra 3rd Ward Councilman, indicating that he "fence sits" and "votes with the Fields, Worthing, Griggs crowd", and that he should just "vote with us to end this nonsense."
These views were also echoed by the host of the show, A.C. Dumas. Mr. Dumas also indicated that he often contacts councilpersons other than his own, Mr. Guerra, to "get things done." The interview was aired 11-10-18 on radio station WFLT 1420AM Flint, MI. Click here to listen to the interview.
