Here’s to looking forward to a new year

Well, here we are in the first week of the new year.
As is usual at this time of the year, most of us have high hopes for the coming year.
For the city, we are confident that its progress and growth will continue. As we noted on the front page of this issue, the Hamtramck Public School District deserves much praise for its accomplishments in the past year.
The school district has been a key partner with the city in making massive improvements and is a major contributor to the city’s phenomenal economic growth.
Hamtramck is definitely on the map these days for developers. One of the biggest influences, we feel, has been the huge success of the Detroit City Football Club and its partnership with the school district, and to an extent also the city.
That club’s amazing fan support has undoubtedly attracted developers and investors.
Hamtramck’s real estate is red hot right now, and we expect more empty buildings to be snatched up in the coming year.
If you are not a participant in the city’s economic comeback, consider yourself tipped off: Now is the time to invest.
What’s even more gratifying is the number of young adults starting up businesses here and successfully finding their niche.
Hamtramck is a textbook example of how to reinvent a city.
While some of our infrastructure needs repairing, we have good bones here – a foundation that can easily be built up again.
Hamtramck is going to have an exciting year ahead. You can bet on it.

    The divisions in the city caused by the November 2016 mayoral and City Council election sniping and the dubious Michigan State Police “investigation” continue to linger unabated.

    Many in the Bengali-American and Yemeni-American communities feel the election was “stolen” by the pervasive news coverage and gratuitous statements by MSP spokespersons of an investigation suggesting that criminal evidence had been uncovered of election law violations involving absentee ballots.

    The incumbent candidates were clearly beneficiaries of the published MSP statements and their “mandate” questioned by the fact that hundreds of absentee ballots were unreturned – possibly due to voter fear that they would be ensnared in the MSP investigation.

    Prosecutorial officials owe the public an explanation of their findings once this months-long probe is completed so suspicion can be lifted over those innocent candidates whose names surfaced as targets of that probe due to injudicious statements injected to the media by the MSP.
