Sign our Petition Today: Orr Must GO!

Please join the Respect for Detroit Citizens Coalition in asking citizens of Detroit and all of those who support us, in calling for the resignation of Emergency Manager Kevin Orr after his recent Wall Street Journal comments stating, “For a long time the City was dumb, lazy, happy, and rich.” We ask that you sign the petition, and share the email language below with all of your networks. We must show to everyone that the Citizens of Detroit demand respect and that Detroit is Better Than That!

Dear Citizen of Detroit,

Sign our petition at and show that Detroiters, and all who support our great city, will not be insulted and demeaned by the self proclaimed “benevolent dictator.” Mr. Orr’s recent comments in an interview with the Wall Street Journal stating, “For a long time the City was dumb, lazy, happy and rich.“ were arrogant and callous. It is, without apology, possessing no sensitivity or a concern for the very people he has been “selected” to so-called manage.

  1. It is obvious that this man doesn’t care about Detroit or us citizens,He has no respect for us or our city.He needs to go like any other no good man,We can do bad by ourselves!!

  2. For Emergency Financial Manager Kevin Orr to reference Detroiters as dumb, lazy, happy and rich, is a euphemism that only bespeaks a lack of integrity, character, and diplomacy on his behalf, and is a sheer reflection of and or upon the Governor of this State, it’s office, and it’s outstanding commonwealth. And whereas this statement has absolutely misrepresented Detroit’s history, its diverse communities; White and African American, Arabic and Jewish, Mexican and other immigrants, such an untoward disposition about the hard working citizens of Detroit has been insensitively verbalized. Mr. Kevin Orr is therefore MORALLY UNFIT to regulate the city of Detroit or represent the Governor in the capacity of Emergency Financial Manager, and is thus more profitable to the it’s recovery by resigning.
