Young professionals discuss city's future with Gov. Snyder at Wayne State

March 26, 2013

Gov. Rick Snyder joined young professionals Monday for some face time. Snyder challenged the group of young Metro Detroit professionals to get involved in helping shape the city's future. "I need you to say as we go through these issues about the future of the city, how you feel about it," said Snyder, during a private meeting with the nonprofit Detroit Young Professionals at the Wayne State University Welcome Center. "Show up at meetings and participate and talk. Bring your friends." Joining Snyder was Kevyn Orr on his first day as Detroit's emergency manager. Bobby Smith, 29, moved to Detroit from New Jersey 10 years ago to attend Wayne State University. He remained in the city as he developed En Garde Detroit, which provides youth with access to the sport of fencing.
