Statement from state Rep. LaTanya Garrett (D-Detroit) on the passing of Highland Park city councilman and former mayor Titus McClary

Tuesday, May 9, 2017

I was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Titus McClary as he was, as many know, a giant in our community. His unwavering dedication to public service was not only inspirational, it was responsible for much of the change and progress we’ve seen in Highland Park over the last several decades. A true public servant was lost this weekend, and not only the city, but the entire state, mourns along with his family for his passing. His contributions to the city will not soon be forgotten, and we are deeply grateful to have been touched by his presence and his devotion, if even for too short a time.
