Governor Rick Snyder appointed attorney Kevyn Orr to be the emergency financial manager for the City of Detroit last week. It's too early to know how effective Mr. Orr will be. However, at least for the moment, I am cautiously optimistic that he will be somewhat effective. This, of course, is more than I could say for Mayor Dave Bing.
Since we are going to working with Mr. Orr at least the next year or so, I think it would appropriate for everyone in the neighborhood to get to know a little bit about him. Therefore, I want to share a short video that Governor Snyder's team released that allows Mr. Orr to introduce himself to Detroiters in his own words.
