Bing fires Crittendon, saw her as roadblock to Detroit’s fiscal reform (Detroit Free Press)

January 9, 2013 – The City Council on Tuesday approved a host of key measures to address Detroit’s fiscal crisis, including ousting the city’s top attorney and adopting four new restructuring contracts. Mayor Dave Bing said he hopes the moves will convince the state that Detroit is serious about fixing its budget. A state team that’s been reviewing the city’s books could recommend by Friday that the governor appoint an emergency financial manager — a move Bing said would be a mistake. The most surprising move was the council’s decision to oust Corporation Counsel Krystal Crittendon at Bing’s request, since members had previously resisted his efforts to remove her.
