Mayoral candidate Lisa Howze calls her campaign “a transition point.”
Four years ago, she burst on the scene as a Detroit City Council candidate who advanced to the primary election by touting her experience as a certified public accountant.
But now, she’s reintroducing herself to Detroit and wants city residents to get to know her as a person.
“When I ran for council, stressing that I was a CPA, it distinguished me from the pack,” Howze said in her office at Grace Union Church on the city’s west side. “But in this mayoral race it started to fall on deaf ears. … The turn we’ve made in the campaign is to allow them to get to know who I am and what my experience has been … so they’ll know and trust me.”
