Max Dade, Ward Manager of Trenton
Connection Rating 5; Trenton/Old Detroit
The only troll on the city council, Max Dade is also one of the longest serving. His position is due to the bylaws requiring that the ward manager be a resident of the ward, and there are so few legal residents of Trenton that he has been un-opposed in the last 6 elections. While not the savviest political operator, his seniority (and knowing all the backroom deals that have taken place over the last 30 years) give him significant power.
