Cockrel not seeking re-election to Detroit Council

Cockrel not seeking re-election to Detroit Council Cockrel first was elected to the nine-member council in 1997 and served as the city's mayor for about nine months in 2008 when Kwame Kilpatrick resigned in disgrace after a text-messaging sex scandal led to criminal charges. Detroit's budget deficit is about $327 million, and it has more than $14 billion in long-term debt. To cut costs, Mayor Dave Bing has proposed reducing the Council's staff in the city's 2013-14 budget. Cockrel has been a calming influence on earlier City Councils which often argued and appeared dysfunctional.
