DETROIT (WWJ) – The city of Detroit has until March 11th to appeal Governor Snyder’s declaration that the city is in a financial emergency. That could lead to the appointment of an emergency financial manager, but WWJ Newsradio 950’s Beth Fisher reports some citizen groups plan to fight any attempt at that.

Citizens for Detroit president Tom Barrow says it’s all concocted because Detroit hasn’t defaulted on any of its debts . He says the citizens have to organize.

“We may have to march around blocks, we may have to go into places where they may not want us to go to express our desires, we may have to show up at places where they may not want us to show up to express our displeasure at this,” added Barrow. “The whole thing is going to be mapped out when we bring all of these commmunity groups together.”

Barrow, who’s considering a run for mayor of Detroit, says he doesn’t believe Detroiters will allow an emergency financial manager.

He thinks the city can fix the financial crisis on its own.
