Emergency Manager = Emergency Dictator

Apr 1, 2013

Governor Snyder got his way by appointing an Emergency Manager over Detroit. The citizens of Michigan voted against having this type of dictator just last November. Yet Snyder and the Michigan legislature ignored that.

And according to M-live (a website) on 3/26, “A majority of Detroit voters oppose the state takeover of city government. Poll results showed that 59 percent of likely Detroit voters either strongly oppose or somewhat oppose Governor Rick Snyder’s appointment [of an emergency manager].”

So much for the fiction of “democracy” and “majority rule”!
