'Current and potential elected officials urged to participate

in Detroit Clean Sweep'



Apr 24, 2001, 01:00 ET from City of Detroit

    DETROIT, April 24 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- As the citizens
 of Detroit band together this week to help make the city a cleaner place
 during the eighth annual Detroit Clean Sweep, Mayor Dennis Archer is issuing a
 call to all current elected officials, as well as those individuals who will
 be seeking public office during the upcoming election cycle, to take an active
 part in the City's annual bagged litter campaign.
     "I would strongly encourage all candidates for Mayor, City Council and
 City Clerk, both declared and considering a run, to join with the citizens of
 Detroit as we work to make our community a cleaner, safer place for everyone,"
 said Mayor Archer.  "Working together, citizens and public officials alike, we
 can have a positive impact on our city and its neighborhoods."
     Formerly a one day affair, Clean Sweep has been expanded to six days this
 year.  From Monday, April 23 to Friday, April 27, Clean Sweep will focus on
 cleaning up around businesses and schools.  On Saturday, April 28,
 individuals, churches and community groups will fan out across the City
 picking up, bagging up and sweeping up litter and debris from neighborhoods,
 parks, playfields and vacant lots.
     "I look forward to seeing all of the candidates, as well as their staff
 members and volunteers, on our city's streets on Saturday, April 28," said
 Mayor Archer.  "I am confident that this will be the best Clean Sweep yet."
     City Council Members Gil Hill, Maryann Mahaffey, Sheila Cockrel, Nicholas
 Hood, Alberta Tinsley-Talabi and Kay Everett (in conjunction with her Keep
 Detroit Beautiful Task Force), as well as City Clerk Jackie Currie have
 already registered for Detroit Clean Sweep.
     Anyone who has not already signed up to join the City's army of Clean
 Sweep volunteers is asked to register at one of the ten Neighborhood City Hall
 locations, beginning at 8 a.m. on the morning of April 28.
