Southfield (CBS Detroit) – What was the biggest story of 2018? Was it the blue wave that swept over Michigan and saw Gretchen Whitmer elected as our new governor? Was it General Motors retrenching as it announced layoffs and plant closings? Or Detroit’s resurgence as more developments shape up in its downtown and neighborhoods?

The roundtable of Denise Ilitch, CEO of Ilitch Enterprises and Regent at UM, Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson and Susy Avery, Co-Director of the Michigan Political Leadership Program and former Chair of the Michigan GOP, join Carol Cain, Senior Producer/Host of MICHIGAN MATTERS to talk about it.
