Martha Reeves has lost the Detroit council seat

After one term in office, the former Motown singer tenure on the Detroit City Council has ended.

It has been reported that Martha Reeves lost in the city’s nonpartisan primary on Tuesday.

The 68-year-old Reeves tells Detroit’s WDIV-TV that she’ll concentrate on her music career.

Of the six incumbents running for re-election, only Reeves failed to move on to the Nov. 6 general election.

She has been criticized for missing council meetings and for voting against a state plan to turn Detroit’s Cobo Center over to a regional authority. The convention center hosts the North American International Auto Show each January.
