Meet Fred.

Having the honor of serving you before in our State Capitol as State Representative, I take the responsibility of representing you very serious.


 In 2014, the voters put their trust, faith and support in me, as I was elected to serve my first term in the House of Representatives. In the legislature, I served as the top Democrat from Detroit. Serving as the Assistant Democratic Leader and Democratic Chair of Appropriations, I worked everyday to build a better Detroit. 

Everyday that I went to Lansing, I fought those who did not have the best interests of our citizens at heart, those who attempted to destroy the hopes and dreams of our youth, and those who attempted to forget about Detroit.


Over those four years, we worked everyday and fought to ensure our citizens were protected. We have delivered millions of dollars back to our city to protect our vital services such as Police, Fire, and EMS. We delivered hundreds of thousands of dollars to our community groups in Detroit to help strengthen our neighborhood and blocks. We revitalized the Dexter-Elmhurst Center together. We worked hard everyday, to create policies to make our city a place we can be proud of. Please notice that I said WE, because I could not have accomplished any of that without YOU. 



Although there are many things we’ve accomplished, there is much work to be done.

The issues that our citizens face in Detroit are critical. Downtown is growing, but our neighborhoods are still hurting. Blight is still an issue, illegal dumping is still taking place, and many Detroiters feel forgotten. In times like these, we need leadership. 


That is why I’m running to be your next Detroit City Councilmember in District 7. 


If we work together, we can rebuild our neighborhoods, bring jobs to our district that pay a living wage, build small businesses in our community, protect our Seniors, and build a better future for our youth. 


I am asking you to give me the chance to continue serving you. I am asking you to send your fighter to the Detroit City Council so we can finish what we started. I am asking for your vote!


We will continue the legacy of integrity, service, and leadership. Together we can accomplish anything.


Working with you and Fighting for you,



Hon. Fred Durhal III
