White House will be sending several members of Obama administration officials to Detroit next week — including Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. to meet with city and state officials to make sure Detroit is taking advantage of all federal programs available to the city.
According to reports by The Lansing State Journal:
Gene Sperling, director of President Barack Obama’s National Economic Council and point man on the response to the crisis in Detroit, will be part of the meeting. The administration is also sending Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan, Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.
“We’re going to continue to support the efforts under way in Detroit and ensure the federal government is an active partner in supporting the revitalization of the city,” Sperling said. “This effort is about lifting up Detroit and committing to a shared, long-term investment that will enable the businesses and residents in Detroit to expand opportunity and renew this world-class city.”
