“… I think he should have done a ‘George Wallace’… He should have stood in the doorway, he should have forced them to go to court to get an injunction and we should have presented our case in court,” said Kwame Kenyatta.
A state financial review team is scheduled to meet with Detroit City Council members in groups of two or three to avoid violating the open meetings act.
