DETROIT (WWJ) – Detroit City Council President Charles Pugh says the city doesn’t need a financial manager from Lansing — it needs someone at City Hall to take charge.
“It’s time for the mayor to step up and make these tough decisions and the city council will support him because we know that we don’t need an emergency financial manager, we need some leadership on this issue from the mayor and from city council,” Pugh said during a live interview with WWJ Newsradio 950.
“We’re not in a place where we need an emergency financial manager. The mayor and the rest of us – city council, the city – we do need our unions to come to the table. June is too late. We need to talk about concessions and pension obligations and healthcare,” he said.
