Conyers: Emergency Manager Not a Solution to Highland Park School District Budget Problems
(DETROIT) – Today, Representative John Conyers, Jr. (D-Mich.) released the following statement in response to Governor Rick Snyder’s January 20th letter to Highland Park School District parents advising that the district is in jeopardy of closing within the next few months due to budget shortfalls and informing them that he has appointed an independent financial review team to examine the district’s finances.
“I appreciate that the Governor has stepped forward to provide some immediate financial assistance. It is important to ensure that young people in the Highland Park community have a stable and secure learning environment. However, I believe the best way for our community to move forward is for stakeholders at all levels of government to work together to solve this problem. Any discussion by the Governor of employing a emergency manager in Highland Park is premature at this time.”
