There's hope for Detroit...

Mike Duggan, the gentleman whom all and sundry have tried to keep off the ballot which, in itself, speaks volumes, won the Primary from the position of "write-in" candidate. The fact that he did it from such a position means he looks good for winning later in the year.

Fortunately for Detroit he has experience in Wayne County government, (Detroit is in Wayne County), he has also been the Wayne County Prosecutor and, more importantly, managed to drag the Detroit Medical Center from impending closure to a successful and growing concern in a matter of a couple of years that recently sold to a publicly traded entity.

He is ready, willing and able to work with the Emergency Manager to make Detroit work... I just hope he wins.

If he wins and turns Detroit around....then he is the Man for 2020!! To run against Hillary at the end of her first term.

He's a Dem so he'd never get the chance until 2024.

While that may seem like a bad thing he does demonstrate an ability to get the right things done. We'll see what happens if he gets in...
