City of Detroit to Own New Hockey Arena

Aug 5, 2013

The new plan for the Ilitch Hockey arena is that the City of Detroit will own it. This will cut down on the amount of taxes the wealthy Ilitch family will owe.

State workers wonder: How can the City of Detroit afford to own that new hockey arena when they just went into bankruptcy?

The politicians are bailing out the Ilitch family and not the city. It’s a crying shame.

They do what they want for who they want.
