The view from Benton Harbor. (P.S.: Gov says 23 managers on the way)

Updated

Eclectablog posts this video of Benton Harbor, Michigan’s lakefront park – it’s great to get a current view. You can see that it’s now right up against the golf course for fancy folks. As Eclectablog notes in his post, the city of Benton Harbor leased the parkland to the developer, and could in theory get it back at some point. For now, that would have to be the decision of the city’s emergency financial manager. He’s the boss.

In other Michigan news, Governor Rick Snyder said in his education address that 23 school districts are on the verge of getting emergency managers who’ll be able to cancel union contracts and redesign the system as they sit fit. Most of those are in Greater Detroit. So far, Detroit’s school system is the only one in the state with an emergency manager – that’s the guy who’s thinking of closing the Catherine Ferguson Academy for pregnant girls and young mothers.
