    What IF Mike Dugan decides to run for Governor, who would replace him as Mayor?

    I believe the City Council president, like what happened when Kwame was convicted back in 2009.

    I guess I wasn't being thorough enough in my original post. I understand the Detroit hierarchy of Mayoral replacement, so that's not it. Detroit went through a brief period of resurgence when Coleman Young was replaced by Dennis Archer. Detroit went into a downslide under the Kilpatrick administration. Right now, certain areas of Detroit are again experiencing a resurgence. Who would replace Mike Duggan, if he chooses to run for, or be appointed to, a different office other than Mayor of Detroit? Who would be able to fill his shoes to continue Detroit's growth, and not send it back into remission?

    sidebar: Detroit has never had a female mayor. We'll see how many women run for this next contest.

    Some good choices, Mr. Tate comes to mind, as well as, Ms. Mary Sheffield.

    So my vote for Trump may have kept Duggan in Detroit? A positive unintended consequence.

    I know a staunch Detroit Democrat that voted for Trump for just that reason. And if Duggan runs for Governor, they plan to vote for the opposing person.

    Maybe he could pull a Pingree and do both?

    I voted for both Snyder and Duggan in 2015.

    Thinking outside the box can work wonders if you're open minded enough to think on your own. Those two working together were the best things that have happened for Detroit in my lifetime.

    I think Archer gets looked at too kindly considering the economy of the 90s and having a Dem in the white house he was not able to find that much investment. The Residency act also helped fuel flight

    I guess you would've had to have been around for the Young years to appreciate Archer. Coleman did an outstanding job of alienating suburbanites and white people in general. Detroit's exodus increased, as did animosity towards Detroit. Archer was able to create an environment of cooperation between different factions, and started providing much neglected City services to residents. On the flip side he did not support renovating or saving Tiger Stadium @ all, and he single-handedly wiped out Rivertown. He was very approachable and a welcome change.

    CAY did indeed alienate the suburbanites, feeling white flight -- but it was medicine that was needed at the time. Archer was also great medicine.

    But today the time for blaming has passed. Now's the time for just doing good things.

    I think this is Duggan's to lose. It would take something big to take him down, something on the scale of a demolition cost federal indictment with highly damning evidence.

    If he moved on or ran for higher office, I think Ken Cockeral Jr. could make a strong run. He's got name recognition, was actually mayor for a minute and is, from all I can see, unblemished.

    Charlie LeDuff lives in Pleasant Ridge, with wife and kids. Doubt he would run.

    Most likely the one and only positive thing to result from a vote for the Apricot Mussolini

    Neither of them were on the ballot in 2015.

    I think that Dugan has done a very good job overall. For what it's worth, there is a lot more accountability among city employees. I also think that progress has been very slow in the vast majority of the cities neighborhoods, but not completely nonexistent. You have to look at what he was starting with, he's not a miracle worker.

    Whoever is the next mayor over the next 4 years will not get much federal love, Duggan had biden's ear. Coleman had Carter for a short period.

    You urban might think that Dr. Carson at HUD would be interested in the neighborhood changes in older Rust Belt cities. However, I see no evidence to suggest that he knows anything at all about urban issues or the complicated details of the 47 billion dollar annual budget of HUD.
