Honest and open government is focus Of Detroit forum at Wayne State's Law School

In response to concerns about past Detroit secrecy and abuses, a forum on open government will be held Monday at Wayne State’s Law School. Monday’s forum on “building an honest and open government in Detroit” grew out of concerns after the racketeering conviction of former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick. Speakers are expected to include U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, by video, U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade and Quicken Loans founder Dan Gilbert. The forum, subtitled “Why Public Integrity Matters," starts at 9 a.m. in the Partrich Auditorium.
