Cardi DeMonaco Jr Cardi DeMonaco Jr, Councilperson, City of Eastpointe

Cardi was appointed to the Eastpointe City Council on October 23, 2014. On February 24, 2015, Cardi was elected and then reelected on November 7, 2017. Cardi was on the City of Eastpointe Zoning Board of Appeals from June 2012 until October 2014, when assuming the City Council role.

The Muscular Dystrophy Association and American Red Cross are two organizations that are very important to Cardi. Each summer he volunteers at the MDA Summer Camp in Lexington for a week, and he gives blood (almost) every 8 weeks (or 16 if he is able to commit to double reds!).

Today we celebrate the abolition of slavery in the United States.

So many worked so hard to remove this atrocious policy from our country. To all those who worked the Underground Railroad, to President Abraham Lincoln signing the Emancipation Proclamation, to the passage of the 13th Amendment of the United States Constitution by Congress, to ratification by three-fourths of the States, all are free, regardless of the color of their skin.

On Monday, the Supreme Court of the United States, affirmed in a 6-3 vote, that employers cannot discriminate based on an employee being homosexual or transgender.

This is huge news, and a great step forward for equality in our great country. If you have a minute, please read the Syllabus, and at least the first few pages of the opinion and two dissents.

Happy LGBTQ Pride Month!

Macomb March on June 6, 2020

Last Saturday, I attended the Black Lives Matter demonstration on Hall Road, started by AMA, also known as the three Chippewa Valley students Angel-Mary-Ariana. Thousands attended in support of the movement, as seen in the 7+ minute video.

But that was just the beginning for positive change in Macomb County. All of the folks that attended (including myself) need to look deep inside and figure out how we can make things more equitable in our society. I'm starting with our City Council meeting on Tuesday, by introducing a budget amendment for body-worn cameras in the police department.

Do your part. The time for change is now!

Eastpointe OKs improvements to 2 parks

“I was happy to see the start of the work at Goetz, because it’s essentially just grass right now,” he said. “We’ll be turning it into a full park now with benches and gazebos and other resources so you can actually use it as a park. We don’t have much park space between Eight Mile Road and Nine Mile Road, so I’m excited that we are working on a park in that area since most of our parks happen to be between Nine Mile Road and 10 Mile Road.”

EASTPOINTE — Improvements to two parks in Eastpointe will move forward by the end of 2020 after the proposals were approved by the City Council.

NATIONAL GUN VIOLENCE AWARENESS DAY

WHEREAS, every day, more than 100 Americans are killed by gun violence and on average there are more than 13,000 gun homicides every year; and

WHEREAS, Americans are 25 times more likely to die by gun homicide than people in other high-income countries; and

WHEREAS, in an average year, Michigan has more than 1,000 gun deaths, with a rate of about 11.8 deaths per 100,000 people; and

WHEREAS, gun homicides predominantly occur in cities, with more than half of all firearm related gun deaths in the nation occurring in 127 cities; and

WHEREAS, cities across the nation, including in Eastpointe, are working to end the senseless violence with evidence-based solutions; and

WHEREAS, protecting public safety in the communities they serve is the City Council’s highest responsibility; and

WHEREAS, support for the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens goes hand-in-hand with keeping guns away from people with dangerous histories; and

WHEREAS, City Council, the City Manager, the City Attorney, and law enforcement officers know their communities best, are the most familiar with local criminal activity and how to address it, and are best positioned to understand how to keep their citizens
safe; and

WHEREAS, the pandemic facing America has drastically impacted communities and individuals sheltering in place, which may result in situations where access to firearms results in increased risk in intimate partner violence gun deaths, suicide by gun and unintentional shootings; and

WHEREAS, in January 2013, Hadiya Pendleton, a teenager who marched in the presidential inaugural parade and was tragically shot and killed just days later, should be now celebrating her 23rd birthday; and

WHEREAS, to help honor Hadiya – and the more than 100 Americans whose lives are cut short every day and the countless survivors who are injured by shootings every day – a national coalition of organizations has designated June 5, 2020, the first Friday in June,
as the 6th National Gun Violence Awareness Day; and

WHEREAS, the idea was inspired by a group of Hadiya’s friends, who asked their classmates to commemorate her life by wearing orange; they chose this color because hunters wear orange to announce themselves to other hunters when out in the woods, and orange is a color that symbolizes the value of human life; and

WHEREAS, anyone can join this campaign by pledging to Wear Orange on June 5th, the first Friday in June in 2020, to help raise awareness about gun violence; and

WHEREAS, by wearing orange on June 5, 2020, Americans will raise awareness about gun violence and honor the lives of gun violence victims and survivors; and

WHEREAS, we renew our commitment to reduce gun violence and pledge to do all we can to keep firearms out of the wrong hands, and encourage responsible gun ownership to help keep our children safe.

NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the City Council of the City of Eastpointe declare the first Friday in June, June 5, 2020, to be National Gun Violence Awareness Day.

Two government entities not often covered by the media, were covered by the media this week. And not for positive reasons.

As a champion of ethics in Eastpointe, I am disappointed not only by the vote to hire by the SEMSD, but also by the recommendation to do so by the SMDA.

Attached is my email to the Southeast Macomb Sanitary District (SEMSD) and South Macomb Disposal Authority (SMDA) regarding the recent hire of its own board member to a full-time position.

If you cannot tell, I do not approve of the recent revelations.

Letter: Conducting elections preserves their integrity

It is essential that we conduct successful elections in the State next week, as well as in August and November. Eastpointe does not have an election next week, but it will in August and November.

The United States conducted elections during the Civil War, in the midst of World War II, and while the Spanish Flu pandemic was ravaging the country in 1918. Read why it is important to have on time elections in August and November, from two of the folks that help conduct elections in our State, including our own County Clerk, Fred Miller.

"Exercising our right to vote is a symbol of strength and demonstrates the resilience of our Republic."

Thank you for keeping J.J. Mich. I think they do a great job with the parks, ball fields and so much more. Thank you Mr. DeMonaco.
Can you please get a clarification on the lawn cutting post added awhile ago on the City Site. Are residents allowed to mow their own lawns ? Many are under the impression NO LAWNS , period are to be cut, i & others are under the impression. That you cannot have a lawn service company cut or landscape your property but if you, the resident cut your own lawn, that is permitted. People are going bat -crap crazy over this. ThankYou & can it be clarified on the city site, I have no idea who posted the notice.
Landscaping is the cosmetic things that are done to the lawn ie: planting flowers, creating flower beds, brick pavers, planting bushes. Grass cutting is maintenance. Aerations are not essential but cutting is a sanitation issue ie: rodents, insects and blight. The Mayor has the power to deem this essential only cutting.
Does this include the Election workers checks, too.
Cardi, Hope this finds you well. I'm going you can help me... I'm away from home during this event and am trying to complete my 2019 taxes. I need to find out my property taxes for 2019. No one is answering calls or returning messages when I call the city. Is anyone there? Is there a way to find this public information on the City website? Do you have a link? Macomb County answered their phone and said they wouldn't have that info, but Eastpointe should have it available online... I just can't seem to navigate the website well enough to find it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, DG
Good luck today, I so wish i could vote for you !!
The very best of wishes for you tomorrow in the election. If Eastpointe voters know what they are doing, you will be their next mayor :)
Best of luck tomorrow Cardi DeMonaco Jr!!!
Good Luck Cardi
He can't wait to go with me to vote for you!
What's your opinion on Sanctuary cities?
Good luck! Hearing good stuff about you!
