DETROIT - Democratic Municipal Officials is the preeminent national organization for mayors and city council members who subscribe to the values of the Democratic Party. Douglass J. Diggs, CEO of The Diggs Group Heritage in Detroit recently joined the group’s Business Council.

“City leaders are working hard every day to bring quality economic development to their communities, and they appreciate opportunities to interface with business leaders who are investing where they live,” said Barbara Moore, Executive Director of DMO.

“We are honored to have the support of The Diggs Group, and we welcome Douglass Diggs to the Business Council of our National Advisory Board. Our Advisory Board members help us chart the future of our organization and provide the financial support necessary to expand our work.”

“I am excited to work in collaboration with the DMO, “ said Diggs. “We are at a critical time in our history and the more we work together to accomplish our goals, the more successful we will be at the local community level as well as on a national front. The DMO is at the forefront of this work.”

Moore outlined three new initiatives that the DMO will be focusing on: Building a Democratic Future, Investing in Tomorrow’s National Leadership, and Crafting Solutions for America’s Challenges:

“We work to build a Democratic future by using both new and old networking methods to link local Democrats; forging a relationship between local Democrats, the DNC, state parties, and other political organization. We invest in tomorrow's national leadership by highlighting the accomplishments of local leaders, and training Democrats to win and to speak effectively to our issues and we craft solutions for America's challenges by capitalizing on America's cities and towns as laboratories for policy innovation; promoting our members' effective policy solutions;

Moore also noted, “The DMO recently elected Detroit City Council Member Scott Benson as our National President, and so it is especially rewarding to see the business community in Detroit coming out to support Scott's leadership, and to lay the groundwork for our 2019 National Board retreat which we look forward to hosting in the great city of Detroit.”

“I am thrilled to introduce The Diggs Group to DMO and bring them onto the DMO National Advisory Board Business Council, said Benson. “The Diggs Group is developing community prioritized housing in Detroit's own District 3 and this is a testament to their commitment to growing neighborhoods. I wanted them to join DMO's Advisory Board to help build these partnerships nationwide. Cities succeed when our local businesses and institutions take an active role in community development.”
