Mayor-elect Mike Duggan issues statement on Detroit bankruptcy

Posted: Updated:
SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -
After Judge Steven Rhodes announced his ruling that Detroit is eligible for Chapter 9 bankruptcy, Detroit Mayor-elect Mike Duggan issued the following statement:

"This is a day in Detroit's history that none of us wanted to see.  Now that Judge Rhodes has ruled the city eligible for bankruptcy, we are about to move into the Plan of Adjustment phase that is likely to define our city government for years to come.
 
"I'm going to do everything I can to advocate on behalf of Detroit's future in this process.  We need to make sure the retirees are treated fairly on the pensions they earned and we need to make certain we come out of bankruptcy in a way we can afford to provide the quality of city services the people of Detroit deserve."
