DPS Emergency Manager Packs Up His Desk

Nov 12, 2012

Roy Roberts, ex-Emergency Manager of the Detroit Public School System, threw a fit about community action to defeat Proposal 1. He said that he would just quit and leave on the spot in protest if Proposition 1 was defeated.

So there! Looks like he told everybody off! At least he thought so until community groups arrived the day after the vote to help him pack and clear off!

Now he is mumbling something about a 30-day transition....

So long, good bye, Roy!
