Mayor to discuss Detroit achievements in annual speech

DETROIT (AP) — Mayor Mike Duggan is expected to highlight city achievements and future plans during Detroit’s annual State of the City Address.

The event is scheduled Tuesday evening at East English Village Preparatory Academy. Attendance is by invitation only.

During last year’s address, Duggan proposed a unified school bus system that would transport students from charter schools and the Detroit school district. The speech also focused on efforts to combat crime and a plan to have every abandoned home in the city demolished, renovated or boarded by 2020.
