Robert Bobb hints he may want to stay on as Detroit Schools EFM
Detroit schools emergency financial manager Robert Bobb says he's willing to consider staying on the job beyond June in the wake of Michigan's new financial oversight law. Robert Bobb told the Detroit News editorial page that he's "not lobbying for the job." But he says the "pace of change" possible under the new law is appealing.
Bobb was hired in 2009 by then-Gov. Jennifer Granholm to fix the district's finances. His latest contract was extended through June by Gov. Rick Snyder, who signed a law giving Bobb and other emergency financial managers the right to oversee not just a school district's finances but also its academics.
Snyder's office says if Bobb is interested in staying he would be among the candidates considered.
