    Hazen Pingree

    My favorite local historical figure,
    Hazen Pingree, Detroit's "Reform Mayor".
    Extra credit opportunity: Find his statue and be photographed with him (Make sure you get parent permission first), and then do a little research-- When was he in office? What was he known for? What do you think of Mayor Pingree?
