Best Muslim-Majority City Council 

Hamtramck City Council

This year, we took a warts-and-all look at Hamtramck's Muslim-majority city council. With right-wing bloggers and news media in high dudgeon over the election results, we talked to the locals, the mayor, and council members who'd been bombarded by phone calls from around the world. What did we find? A small-town city council much like other city councils, full of bickering, dissent, and not-ready-for-prime-time politics. But everybody involved seemed to be serious about leaving religion out of government, and hopeful about the little city's future. In a category built for one, they're still good enough to merit mention.

(Sorry, no information is currently available for other years in this same award category.)
