Today, we’re live from the Detroit Policy Conference at Motor City Soundboard.
There are two main themes for today’s show:
First, there’s a new energy for regional cooperation from Oakland County Executive David Coulter. He outlined his cooperative strategy for regional economic attraction, his support for transit (and why), and drew some contrasts to his predecessor. Dug Song also was big on working together, talking about how he believes Ann Arbor is part of Metro Detroit economically. We dive into that, and we have a poll on Twitter (of course).
Then, a conversation with cannabis entrepreneur Anqunette Sarfoh. She’s a former Fox 2 News anchor who now serves on the Michigan Cannabis Industry Association. She’s also planning to launch a growing, processing and retail facility in Macomb County.
And, a bill to require study of toll roads has made it out of the Michigan senate.
