Mayor Bing says he will work to be a good teammate for emergency financial manager

(WXYZ) -


Mayor Bing says he will be a good teammate after Michigan Governor Rick Snyder named Kevyn Orr as his choice for Detroit's emergency financial manager during a 2 p.m. press conference on Thursday.
Bing also answered questions about his role now that an EFM has been nominated. Bing previously stated that he did not agree with City Council's appeal and was ready to team up with the new EFM.
"I'm looking forward to being a part of the team," said the mayor. "I've committed to the governor, to Kevyn that we'll do everything we can to be good teammates."
Bing went on to say that it is time to stop fighting each other and time to start working together.
He said the city will now have the leadership capabilities and qualities that will help bring Detroit back.
