Detroit mayoral candidate files campaign finances, other still working

One Detroit mayoral candidate raised $361,880 in the months before the November general election while another has yet to file. 

Mayor Mike Duggan, seeking a third term as Detroit’s mayor, garnered massive donations from top executives at companies, such as Quicken Loans, the Forbes Company and DTE Energy between August and October. His opponent Anthony Adams, however, told the Free Press he will file his campaign statement on Wednesday as he wraps up tallying his contributions and spending.

The deadline to file was Friday, according to the Michigan Bureau of Elections.

Detroit mayoral candidate Anthony Adams meets with constituents at community meetings at Harold G Cross Park in Detroit on Oct. 16, 2021. Adams spent part of his Saturday in Detroit visiting communities and telling them his plan if elected as mayor of Detroit.

Records show that Adams, an attorney who served as deputy mayor under former Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, missed another filing deadline. He received notices to file his post-primary election report, which was due Sept. 2, according to the Wayne County Campaign Finance reporting system. 

Failing to file results in a fee. Records show that Adams paid the $500 fee and Wayne County then submitted a letter acknowledging the receipt of his fine. The letter also stated he still had to file his post-primary campaign finance report.
