About
Beverly Kindle-Walker a candidate for Detroit City Council – At Large. With a record of public service, I have the commitment, fortitude and experience necessary to help the legislative body to govern our city.
(Beverly Kindle -Walker ) I'm in the race for one of two seats for Detroit City Council at-Large. The primary election is Tuesday, August 8th. I walk in the footsteps of Councilman Clyde Cleveland and Councilwoman Brenda M. Scott having served as a Legislative Assistant for a combined nine years. I was a Neighborhood City Hall Manager at the Northeast Office and South Schafer Office for three years. Currently I am a Legislative Assistant to Wayne County Commissioner Tim Killeen, D-Detroit. I ran for Detroit City Council in 2005 and 2009. I also ran for Wayne County Treasurer for several election cycles, challenging the status quo. I have a Graduate Certificate in Public Administration from Central Michigan University, a BS in Community Development also from Central Michigan University and an Associates degree from Wayne County Community College. My church home is Bailey Temple COGIC where I am a licensed missionary. I am not a rubber stamp nor an obstruction. I am for restoration of the Spirit of Detroit for the people of Detroit. Will define later. I'm in it for the long haul. Thanks to everyone for your support, prayers and petitions. Praise God for the victory in the name of JESUS! Amen! 04/26/17 Beverly Kindle-Walker.   

With a record of public service, I have the commitment, fortitude and experience necessary to help right the errant ship of legislative government in our city. I have held positions in city and county government for over a dozen of years. My government experience includes: currently, Legislative Assistant to Wayne County Commissioner Tim Killeen; Neighborhood City Hall Manager at the NE Detroit Office and the S. Schaefer/ S. Fort St Office; Legislative Assistant to Detroit City Council Members Brenda M. Scott and Clyde Cleveland. I am very much acquainted with the city charter and will uphold it as the guiding principal of governance. Also am familiar with the “Plan of Adjustment” that the City operates under.  Monitoring contracts, line items, risk management oversight, encouraging new revenue streams, inter-governmental relationships, budget, rescinding unfair ordinances and setting a real urban agenda will be a priority. I want to lift up a higher standard of excellence with decorum at the Council table!
 
In addition, I have worked in the private sector for ten plus years as an Organizer for the American Federation of Teachers (AFT); AFSCME/UAW Child Care Providers Union; CRS Cluster 3-Community Organizer for Smith Group; Youth Caucus Coordinator for New Detroit, Inc; Assistant Youth Department Head at the Inner City Sub-Center and Travel Counselor for the Automobile Club of Michigan (AAA) Grosse Pointe Branch. I actively serve on several non-profit boards that provide much needed services in the city. I am a member of the Official Eastside Community Slate, the Million Man Alumni Asso, Tuskegee Airmen, Women in Aviation and the Davis Aerospace Technical High School PTA.  My church home is Bailey Temple Church of God in Christ where I am a licensed Missionary.
 
As a candidate for Wayne County Treasurer, I garnered over 100,000 votes in several election cycles and have caused the Treasurer to institute new public policies in tax-payer assistance. Also, I ran for Detroit City Council in 2005 and 2009. I am not a status quo proponent. I stand for the least of these- the disenfranchised silent majority who are screaming from within for representation they can connect with. The winds of change are furiously blowing from the east to the west and from the north to the south in Detroit. The time has come where a different course for the city must be plotted, if not it shall surely sink further. The Spirit of Detroit statue is dedicated with these words from the Apostle Paul in II Corinthians 3:17 “Now the Lord is that spirit: and where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” I am optimistic that with a change in leadership, there are better days ahead for Detroit because of the spirit of the Lord. Detroit is facing urgent times requiring deliberate and balanced leadership with the single goal of doing the righteous thing for the common good of the citizens of Detroit. I pledge to continue to do just that, as demonstrated by my work experiences.
