DETROIT (WWJ) - The 2011 Pancakes and Politics series begins Thursday morning at the Detroit Athletic Club with Governor Rick Snyder as the headliner.
The governor is expected to discuss the state budget and Detroit when he speaks to a sold out crowd of 300 people.
“Obviously, coming on the heels of his budget proposal, I think it’s going to be a packed room,” says Bankole Thompson, Senior Editor of the Michigan Chronicle. “You talk about removing the earned income tax credit. I mean, the Michigan League for Human Services is saying that’s going to put almost 14,000 kids into poverty. I think there are lots of questions that Synder will have to answer.”
The program begins at 8 a.m. Detroit Mayor Dave Bing is also expected to attend. Click here to listen live.
