    Obviously, skillful public relations can make a difference, but the Ilitchs have dug themselves into a pretty deep hole with respect to public perception at this point. It would help if they'd stop doing things people think are bad and making up transparent excuses for why they are doing them.

    They don't need a PR firm. The only thing that they need to do is to get some shovels in the ground and get some of these buildings done that they've promised. The public perception problem will go away.

    A blessing from Jesus Christ himself wouldn't help the illitch's public perception

    What are they doing that people think are bad?

    What they are doing - or not doing - is flat out bad.

    I've always been amazed by billionaires and what they take advantage of. The Illitches could and should spend 10% of their wealth on District Detroit which they said was their thing and it would be what $350 million? This district they fabricated and lied about for tax breaks I would argue would immediately make the entire region better...and for their benefit everything they intended to build there would immediately be worth more. It's disgusting.

    The rest of us spend about 30=40% of our income a year on things that we own. Add 20+ percent for taxes. Could you imagine if billionaires did that? Without tax breaks?

    Detroiters are mad at Dan Gilbert for purchasing many of the empty storefronts downtown. Unlike the Illitches Gilbert had renovated and and occupied these buildings and storefronts with offices, some that are not affiliated with Quicken loans or Bedrock, and retail while the Illitches sat on the UA building for years before even given the appearance of renovating the building while using corporate welfare money allegedly to build the stadium. Vote the members of council out and research to see who are contributing to the campaigns if those who will be running in 2021

    Curbed has a pretty good summary of what is or isn't happening in the so-called District:
