And so it is done
This afternoon, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder appointed Washington, D.C. lawyer Kevyn Orr to be the Emergency Financial Manager of Detroit.
The Emergency Financial Assistance Loan Board has to make the formal appointment of an emergency financial manager and they meet later today.
With that, nearly half of all Michigan African Americans will live without local democratically-elected representation.
Lucky for him he’s a lawyer. I suspect that’s going to come in very handy in the coming months.
