A conversation with Flint Mayor Dayne Walling
Dayne Walling was elected to a second term as Flint’s mayor last week, and since then was told his city is facing a financial emergency.
Michigan Radio's Jennifer White spoke with Walling about the situation.
Walling said he has a lot of questions about how things will unfold, and added, "the Governor and Treasurer have pledged for this to be a collaborative process, but I know that can mean a lot of different things to different individuals."
“I’m prepared to play any positive role that I can in this position," said Walling.
Mayor Walling also gave suggestions on how to work with city leaders and residents.
