Kenneth V. Cockrel, Jr., did not want to become Mayor of Detroit under the circumstances he did. He was thrusted into this position as a result of happenstance, bad judgment by others and by history. Cockrel stabilized the city and restored the public faith & trust in the Mayor’s office – to his detriment he was given just 8 months to make his mark. He made very few decisions that were political. Most where in the best interest of the city. Today, the city still faces its fair share of trouble, but there is hope for Detroit's Turnaround.
