Hohman to talk at 'Detroit Rising' Panel Friday

Also, how "progressive" policies damaged the city

James Hohman, assistant director of fiscal policy, will participate in a panel discussion from 8:30 to 10 a.m. Friday as part of an event titled “Detroit Rising.” The two-day event, sponsored by the Manhattan Institute and State Budget Solutions, kicks off Thursday at 5 p.m. with a panel discussion titled “How the Motor City is Rebuilding and Returning to Greatness.” Friday’s session is titled “Learning from Detroit: Hope for Cities on the Brink.” Both panels will be streamed live.

Also in Detroit this weekend is an event known as “Netroots Nation,” self-described as a “big family reunion for the left.” One progressive Michigan website, ironically, carries this headline about the gathering: “We’re in Detroit. It’s going down.”
