Default Podcast With Mayor Dave Bing About All Things Detroit

http://wdet.org/audio/craigfahle/277/CFS_12-29_Podcast.mp3 (broken link)

It's kinda long, but covers a range of topics coming this year. Here is a sampler:
  • M1 Light Rail Line and regional transit
  • Chain retail stores
  • Use of Detroit Riverfront
  • Development of Woodward Corridor
  • Bringing the Pistons downtown
  • Attracting businesses and entrepreneurs
  • Focusing on Growth Industries
  • Keeping young people in Detroit
  • Working with Governor Snyder to make Detroit the pride of Michigan
If you ask me, Bing's got the right ideas, now let's see if he can deliver.

It's really something to have a Gov'na that cares SPECIFICALLY about making Detroit good again.

It'll be hard to pull off in this political climate though.
