Napoleon takes verbal swipe at Duggan: 'It's our Detroit'
Detroit -- If Wayne County Sheriff Benny Napoleon runs for Detroit mayor, he says he'll campaign as a Detroiter who has lived through the city's struggles, an acknowledged shot at the potential candidacy of former Wayne County Prosecutor Mike Duggan.

Ford Motor Company went through the same thought process years ago. The company was going broke fast. Ford shares were reduced to the point that the Lions were worth more money. They held a family meeting and told the Ford executives they were losing the company and needed outside management. They brought in Mulally and the rest is history. Sometimes doing the same things with the same losers is a bad thing.

How true. More losers inside that company need to be let go, they have long since lost any ability to be forward thinking. Then there were the managers who knowingly and willing harrassed and sabotaged good employees becasue they were jealous and inept. The good ole boy system never got tossed out in that company.

Coleman young was in 2 decades.what positive upgrades did he do? Corruption was rampant all around. It will be up to voters . This guy duggan has proven track record. U don't have to have mayor who has lived through tough times as long as job is taken seriously.kwame was in twice. What did he do except try to rip city off? Detroit decades ago had 1 million people more than normal now. Archer was only person with new honesty approach.if Dugan can turn city around give him chance.if not he won't be reelected.every large city has certain areas that r run down. Cities need leadership that reflects positive change without trying to steal money for u and your relatives. I believe Dugan is right change.

We're all watching Detroit here, but many are not Detroit voters. We can't get Duggan elected no matter how hard we try. Detroiters must decide and generally they pick someone that looks like them. When it doesn't work for them, they double down on the approach. Benny knows how to play this card. Nobody wants to admit to the race card so they must disguise it with code words. Benny says Duggan is just not a Detroiter(black).
