Dave Bing began his Detroit journey in 1966 as a beloved basketball player before ascending to businessman and booster and now, to mayor of America's 11th largest city.

The first special mayoral election in 79 years was triggered by the September resignation of Kwame Kilpatrick amid the text message scandal that landed the former mayor in jail. Cockrel, 43, who was City Council president, became mayor, under the city charter, after Kilpatrick's exit.

Let's hope that Bing can do some good for Detroit!
