(WXYZ) - Governor Rick Snyder says that he would like to see more urgency as Detroit looks for answers to its economic crisis.
Speaking Monday to a group of business, education and civic leaders, the Governor says "Everyday we aren't moving forward, we aren't standing still, we are moving backward."
The governor was speaking at an event called "Let's Go". Sponsored by Crain's Detroit Business, the event challenged leaders to help Detroit move forward.
Keith Crain tells Action News "We wanted to tell the state, the county and the city that we are behind this community."
Deputy Mayor Kirk Lewis says the city needs to decide what are essential services, and eliminate the non-essential departments.
