Metro Detroit’s “Big Four” had their annual public gathering at Detroit’s auto show today.
The four leaders are the Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb county executives, and Detroit’s mayor. It’s usually a mostly feel-good conversation about regional cooperation.
And indeed, they did talk about that and a range of other issues. But the leaders also couldn’t avoid the topic of the hour: Warren Mayor Jim Fouts.
Leaked audio tapes seem to show Fouts making incredibly degrading comments about African-Americans and disabled people, among others.
