GCYD Endorses Flint Mayoral Candidates












The Genesee County Young Democrats are proud to announce our endorsements of Brenda Clack and Dayne Walling in the Flint mayoral primary. Flint has been devoid of responsible leadership at the highest offices of municipal governance for a long time. Flint’s leadership has failed to act with the professional dedication, intelligence, and talent necessary for Flint to take advantage of many opportunities and attempt recovery. Luckily, Flint has been able to depend upon the entrepreneurial zeal and civic dedication of private citizens and county officials. Yet, municipal officials have only hampered this private action and inhibited the ability of good people to make grand contributions. These failures and unprofessional conduct must end today. Therefore, “change” is not only a trendy political slogan, but a necessary means to the inevitable rebirth of the great city of Flint.

These two candidates offer unique qualities that have the potential to pull Flint into the future. Brenda Clack offers experience and professionalism, which are qualities that have sorely been lacking in City Hall. Mrs. Clack has a strong history in Flint politics. She has demonstrated her credibility as a citizen of Flint and as a Democrat. Dayne Walling offers an exciting vision with change at its core. In addition, Mr. Walling has demonstrated his own brand of professionalism and experience focusing on urban planning and redevelopment. Both candidates have the potential to be amazing in City Hall. Both bring the possibility of a transformation in municipal government that is necessary in order to support the incredible amounts of redevelopment in downtown Flint.

For the foregoing reasons, the GCYD is happy to congratulate both candidates in earning our endorsement.

Dane Walling would provide the City of Flint a fresh vision and a focused vision of what remains and can evolve further, of a potentially viable community. These are serious times for serious people. The corrupt views and practices of past mayors and city councilpersons has done nothing but to undermine and stall the progress of a city that screams for leadership and positive vision. I grew up in Flint and went to Pierce, Whittier and Central and graduated from the University of Michigan-Flint. I KNOW the leadership we need can be found in Dane Walling and I believe this man has something solid to offer without the usual dumb politics and lackluster performance we have seen of the past 20 years. I want to see an intelligent leadership come forward in my hometown of Flint, of which I have known its history for 50 years. We need REAL change for our educational institutions, our infrastructure and our renewal of pride for our neighborhoods and community. Dane Walling can bring that and more.
