You don't even know the half of it! My city (lived here since '77) has become a liberal paradise in the last decade or so. The best was after one of the councilman had a relative or friend killed in Detroit, so he organized a city gun "buy-back" which cost the taxpayers something like 3000 dollars, all the while the city is cutting back on services because they are $500K in the hole on the budget!
We also pay the highest property taxes in Oakland county. Oakland county is one of the richest counties in the country, and Ferndale isn't close to being the richest city in the county.
Ferndale does have one of the best police forces in the state, though.
Ferndale has also supplanted Royal Oak as the Gay Mecca of Michigan. I avoid it like the plague.
