Detroit Mayor Dave Bing is taking the first step toward a run for re-election.
Bing presented the city’s 2013-14 budget to the City Council, a plan that includes a $4 million reduction for that nine-member body.
Dave Bing raves about the University of Michigan Wolverines, but Detroit’s mayor is putting his faith — and a dinner bet — on Syracuse University.
Bankruptcy attorney Kevyn Orr is ready to roll up his sleeves and get to work.
Private business, including the Penske Corporation, will donate $8 million for 23 EMS units and 100 police cruisers to boost public safety and reduce response times.
Bankruptcy attorney and turnaround specialist Kevyn Orr arrived downtown Detroit this morning for his first day on the job as emergency financial manager.
“Detroit One brings the principles of teamwork to law enforcement, as well as the community,” said Mayor Dave Bing,
“Houses are being burned down, we’re living in squalor, and I’m sick and tired of it. I’m a taxpayer and I do not want or need to live like this. Please mayor, do something,” the Detroiter pleaded.
Detroiters know all too well that their neighborhoods are filled with abandoned and burned buildings. After putting up with it for so long, residents say they don’t care who is in charge, they just want their city back.
Gov. Rick Snyder acknowledged that his decision to appoint an emergency financial manager for Detroit is bittersweet.
