Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan announced his re-election bid today, touting the city’s post-bankruptcy momentum while acknowledging work remains to make the city a desirable place to raise families.
Taking the stage at the Samaritan Center on the city’s east side, Duggan described a growing pride among Detroiters, improved services and stable city finances.
But he said his re-election campaign is not going to be a victory lap. Basic city services such as timely trash pickup and working streetlights in neighborhoods, two areas improved under his tenure, should be the norm, he said.
“We have to thank somebody for the lights being on. In other cities, that’s expected,” Duggan told an estimated crowd of 1,200 at the rally. “We need to get to the point in Detroit where we expect those things.” (freep.com – Joe Guillan) Click here to get the full story.
