Campaign Themes

Brice outlines his legislative priorities on his official campaign website:[3]

  • Job Creation

Excerpt: "...make it simpler to establish businesses in Detroit and Hamtramck by eliminating roadblocks and through public-private partnerships with the State of Michigan, Detroit and Hamtramck to include workshops, management training and business start-up and capital incentives that provide entrepreneurial and job opportunities."

  • Public Safety Response

Excerpt: "Currently, Detroit responds to 25-percent of the 911 calls within the national average of eight minutes. Through an incentive program using state revenue sharing as a base, I will propose legislation that is targeted to reward municipalities to respond within the national average or better."

  • Academic Environment

Excerpt: "I will collaborate with other legislators and the governor to implement programs that improve the academic environment – safety programs in and around the school, facility improvements, after-school programs, and initiatives to involve parents and provide them the skills to assist their children’s learning."

  • Senior Services

Excerpt: "I will fight to repeal the tax on pensions. I will also collaborate with other legislators and the governor for stricter punishment against people who impose crimes against citizens aged 65 and older."
