Citizens weren't fully aware of corruption and greed in wayne county and airport until less than 2 years ago. Detroit has longstanding reputationi..i agree with many things u r saying. Wayne county has many who don't want a part of detroit except for special events ,sports,etc,basketball is not even in Detroit.

What would Wayne County and a combined Detroit be? Actually, the silliness that he's talking about is just having Wayne County residents pick up the bills for the fallen Detroit. Not too attractive when viewed that way is it?

Here's another Wayne County excess. The county pays $19 million in jail worker overtime each year. They could hire more full time employees and spend $8 million. Having more employees doesn't look as good to them so they waste this extra cost every year.
