Mayor Bing urges Detroiters to support $500M school bond proposal

Marisa Schultz:

Mayor Dave Bing called on Detroiters to support Proposal S, the $500 million school bond proposal that he said will bring jobs and life into city neighborhoods.
Flanked by Robert Bobb, the emergency financial manager for Detroit Public Schools, Bing said Detroit children deserve modern school buildings and the city can’t pass by the opportunity to take advantage of one-time federal stimulus dollars to borrow money at zero- and low-interest rates for school construction and renovation.
“This is real shot in the arm for the city of Detroit and for the children of the city of Detroit,” Bing said.
