Brenda Jones, Detroit City Council President: “I don’t know how it’s affecting what happens with our Water and Sewerage Department because nothing is coming to council. We don’t have the opportunity to ask the questions that we need to ask when it comes to DWSD.”

Michael Mulholland, president of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 207: “It’s a horrible blow to many families in the Detroit area. As if Detroiters and our neighborhoods don’t have instability and poverty. Now it’s going to be greatly increased for the members.”
