DETROIT -- A group of Detroit clergy members has set a time and place for a governor’s debate and invited both gubernatorial candidates to participate -- Virg Bernero immediately accepted. The Detroit debate is scheduled for 6 p.m. Oct. 21 and the public is invited.
In accepting the offer, Bernero released this statement:
"I'll be there. The strength of the state is dependent on a vibrant Detroit. It speaks volumes that my opponent doesn't want to give people more opportunities to compare my specific, concrete economic plan with his corporate buzzwords and happy talk."
