M.L. Elrick speaks to news media and attendees at the kickoff event for his run for City Council for Detroit's District 4 on Monday, April 5, 2021, in Detroit.

A few months after I launched my campaign for Detroit City Council in 2021, I bumped into Detroit’s notorious towing kingpin Gasper Fiore at Nemo’s bar in Corktown. The last time I had seen him was August 2018, when I was working as the investigative reporter at Fox 2 Detroit. Fiore was being hustled into the van that would whisk him away to begin serving a 21-month prison sentence for bribing a public official.
