DETROIT -- During a debate hosted by the clergy of Detroit, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Virg Bernero discussed his concrete plan to restore jobs and capitalize on the economic opportunity of the city of Detroit to build a stronger Michigan.
The clergy of Detroit invited both gubernatorial candidates to participate in the Detroit-specific debate, but unfortunately Bernero’s opponent, Rick Snyder, refused to participate and did not attend. The debate was held to spark a critical discussion of the issues facing the people of Detroit.
"The success of Michigan is uniquely tied to the revival and prosperity of Detroit," said Bernero. "Michigan’s governor cannot ignore the critical role of Detroit and what we can do to help bring prosperity back to our state’s largest city. That is why I am here tonight to share with the people of Detroit my urban agenda and plan to restore our cities." Read more ...
