Melvin McCree

Melvin McCree Tribute

Melvin McCree wasn't your average politician.

I attended the McCree Tribute at the Sarvis Center in Flint , other attendes were a Whos Who of those that care about Flint Michigan.

Said our Lt. Governor John Cherry"He was always prepared to step out and up for issues that he felt were important," Cherry continued "We really have to remember how he carried himself, because we all should carry ourselves the right way."

Melvin McCree, 55, a former Flint City Councilman and Register of Deeds, died Nov. 12.

About 300 people packed the Sarvis Center Thursday for a dinner in tribute to McCree. The event Master of Ceremony was Former Flint Mayor Woodrow Stanley. Stanley did a classy job.

The dinner raised money for a scholarship fund in McCree's honor. McCree was everyone's friend, and he treated people with respect, said Raynetta Speed, Genesee County commissioner.

Melvin was Flint City Council President while I was City Clerk. He was one of the best minds in Public Service.

He will be missd.
