Kennedy at the Old Miami

Kennedy at the Old Miami

Kennedy was rearranging cushions as I was sipping on an iced Coke at the Old Miami along the Cass Corridor yesterday.

She was getting the place ready for an event later on in the afternoon supporting mayoral candidate Mike Duggan.

Kennedy is from Detroit but has moved away from the city four times. The last time she came back was two years ago. She told me she was ready to pack up her bags and leave again when she heard Mike Duggan was running for election. “Only reason I’m still here,” she said.

If you look closely at her badge, you’ll see it says “I Like Mike.” Kind of brilliant in its simplicity, if you ask me.
