    Detroit City Council candidate calls for ethics overhaul

    Mackinac Island — A former journalist running for a seat on Detroit City Council is calling for an overhaul of the city’s ethics board and more stringent financial disclosure rules for the legislative body. 

    M.L. Elrick, who won a Pulitzer Prize for exposing public corruption, announced his run to represent Detroit’s District 4 in April laying out a platform of opportunity, safety and accountability. He faces off Nov. 2 against community advocate Latisha Johnson for a four-year term representing the east side district. 

    Elrick’s call for change comes as members of the City Council are at the forefront of a federal investigation involving Detroit towing operations in what amounts to the broadest public corruption probe in the eight years since former Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick was convicted of racketeering conspiracy.
