The Democrat announced Friday that she wouldn’t seek re-election to her House seat this year and instead would run for mayor of Michigan’s largest city.
Howze said her experience as a certified public accountant and finance professional would be key for the financially struggling city. She said her legislative experience in Lansing would be pivotal in gaining support that the city needs from the state.
The office of Detroit Mayor Dave Bing had no comment Friday on the announcement.
A native Detroiter and product of Detroit Public Schools, Howze graduated from Cass Technical High School in 1991. Four years later, she received an undergraduate degree in accounting from the University of Michigan. Howze is also an alumnus of Walsh College, where she earned a master of science in finance degree in 2004.
This is the face of the new leader of Detroit. Lisa L. Howzie has “Love” for the city. Importantly, Lisa L. Howze is qualified. Upward Mobility! Yay for the “D”.
