Martha Reeves Running For Detroit Council

Veteran MOTOWN singer MARTHA REEVES is planning on entering the world of politics by running for a place on Michigan's Detroit City Council.

The DANCING IN THE STREET singer is currently circulating petitions to build up momentum for her run.

The 63-year-old says, "I think I've had a very good opportunity to travel the world and to observe things. I've always been a good team player and I figure I'll be an asset on our city council in Detroit.

"I'd like to start with the schools and have them, you know, sort of scrutinised and have them get a better understanding of how to educate our children."

All nine of the council's seats are up for re-election in November (05), and Reeves insists she isn't put off by the sometimes volatile nature of city council meetings.

She adds, "I think that our city council could probably get along better if they had a little music. And I'll get them to dance in the streets."
