Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan, former Gov. Jennifer Granholm and Flint Mayor Karen Weaver will be among those speaking at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia next week.

According to a spokesperson for the Hillary Clinton campaign, the three will join a list of several other people being added as speakers during the convention. That list will be released later Thursday.

They also join Henrietta Ivey, a Detroit resident and health care worker, who will be speaking.

Granholm previously spoke at the 2012 DNC where she delivered a speech focusing on the auto industry, saying in part, "America, let's rev our engines! In your car and on your ballot, the "D" is for drive forward, and the "R" is for reverse. And in this election, we're driving forward, not back. Let's re-elect our great president, Barack Obama!"

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette was the only person from Michigan to speak at the Republican National Convention on Monday in Cleveland.
