Coleman Young, Detroit’s mayor from 1918-1997, is one of the city’s most prominent figures. Some were very fond of Young, while others were not. During his time as mayor, he was blamed for police corruption and failure to resolve racial tensions. Coleman’s friend, as part of the Detroit Police Department, was indicted for stealing over 2 million dollars in funds from undercover police programs.  By the end of his time as mayor, unemployment rate reached 11%. Of course, though, Coleman was liked by many, and his success as a mayor is measured differently from person to person.
