Mike Duggan

Mayor, City of Detroit

mike-dugganMike Duggan, elected as Detroit’s new Mayor in November, is perhaps the area’s most successful turnaround specialist, having rescued Wayne County’s finances, the SMART regional bus system and the Detroit Medical Center from financial collapse. In one of Detroit’s most critical elections in decades, Mayor-elect Duggan rose to victory in the general election, as voters recognized his proven track record in multiple sectors.

Since taking office, Mayor Duggan has spearheaded efforts to tackle key challenges facing Detroit, including the implementation of a coordinated strategy to address the city’s ongoing blight problem, the establishment of a Department of Neighborhoods office in each of the seven City Council districts, and the improvement of city lighting and EMS response times.

Mayor Duggan earned both his bachelor’s and law degrees at the University of Michigan.
