What happens after Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr leaves the city? Who should be involved in the transition, and how should it be handled?

Two local emergency managers join WDET guest hosts Chastity Pratt Dawsey, reporter for Bridge Magazine and Christy McDonald, host of MiWeek on DPTV. The guests are Joyce Parker, the current emergency manager of Allen Park, and Lou Schimmel, the former emergency manager for Ecorse, Hamtramck and Pontiac and currently on the transition advisory board in Pontiac.
