Former OSU band director's request denied

Jonathan Waters, former
Ohio State University March-

a chance to get his job back,
after being fired for his squad
engaging in "sexualized" hazing

Waters' attorney had previ-

these accusations are false

However, Ohio State trust-

decision to not give Waters an
opportunity to return to his for-
mer position.

Former Detroit Mayor Dennis Arcer talks'
Q A the city's history, struggles and resurgence

as mayor that Detroit might go Secondly, because of the job loss

-5-,

it had a terrific impact on the
city of Detroit because citizens
who live in the city, or indeed
those who live outside the city
but work in the city, they pay
income tax. And when there's
a job loss or there's layoffs or
companies go bankrupt, people
are not able to work overtime.
That means the second source
of income, income tax, is down
substantially.
The other thing that occurred
that hurt the city of Detroit was
that we've been losing popula-
tion in the city of Detroit since
1953. In 1952, we had 1.82 mil-
lion people living in the city of
Detroit. We've been losing pop-
ulation ever since (now under
700,000).
When you lose that kind of
population, you also lose people
paying taxes, both property tax
and income tax, and so those
kinds of things all combined
together served to cause the city
to run out of money, no cash to
pay its bills.
TMD: How do you think
Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr
and Mayor Mike Duggan have
handled the bankruptcy situa-
tion so far?
Archer: I think Kevyn Orr is
doing a remarkable job. I think
Mayor Duggan and Kevyn Orr
are working very nicely togeth-
er. As well as the demonstrat-
ed commitment between the
mayor, in this case Mike Dug-
gan, and the city council lead by
Council President Brenda Jones.
They work very well together
and that has created a very posi-
tive atmosphere within the city
and the responsibility that has
been turned over to Mayor Dug-
gan to run. Please remember
that emergency financial man-
ager, under our state statute, has
broad authority. He could have,
should he have chosen to do so,
stripped the city council and
Mayor Duggan of any defini-
tive role to play, but he did not
do that. He worked with Mayor
Duggan, and Mayor Duggan and

Kevyn Orr are working together.
There are some things I know
that Mayor Duggan would like
to have quicker, but despite that
they still have a good working
relationship, which bodes well
for the city of Detroit.
TMD: What do you think of
Mayor Duggan's vision for the
future and his long-term goals
for the city?
Archer: With the way the
city was existing at the time
that Mayor Duggan was sworn
in and came into office, I think
he's done a remarkable job with
the opportunities that he's
had before him. He's not had a
chance to come in and be, 'the

ing he's

things
that
would
appeal to people. If we could get
them to come to the region, we
could get them-to come to the
city of Detroit.
TMD: Since the bankrupt-
cy last summer, Detroit has
changed its national story to
one of recovery and the future
but there are still plenty of
people, including students at
the University, who see only
blight and crime. What will
it take for people's minds to
change?
Archer: It's sad when you
consider where you are, at an
outstanding university, 45
minutes away from the city of
Detroit, for someone to have
that view without asking ques-
tions and learning about it and

reading it closer. Do we have
abandoned buildings? Yes. Well,
remember what I indicated
before: we had 1.82 million peo-
ple living in the city of Detroit
back in 1951 - '52. The city of
Detroit, according to the census,
the population today is about
690,000 people. If you lose 1.12
million people over that num-
ber of years you don't need the
same housing units. As it relates
to crime, that problem occurred
because of the fiscal problems
the city was having and the
failure to properly monitor
and come up with a good bud-
get. At the time I left office we
had, I think, about 3,700 police
officers. Today we've got about
2,600, and that's what Dave
Bing inherited when he became
mayor and that's what Mayor
Duggan is dealing with. But that
can be solved and will be solved
and is being solved now and
crime is being reduced.
So, all I'm saying is that you
can find whatever you want to
find and find something and
make it negative or you can be
objective and say, "You know
what, here's how you change it."
Students have different areas of
interest that cause them to go
to the different colleges within
the University of Michigan.
You've got outstanding profes-
sors, you've got brilliant young
people who are your classmates.
You're there to learn and you're
there to learn because I think
you want to make a difference
in this world. So, rather than
looking at something and say-
ing, "Gee, it's bad," and walking
away with that impression, the
question is, "Ok, what would you
do about it? What are your sug-
gestions?"
If people are just content to
sit back and go on what hear-
say happens today, then those
people will always have a nega-
tive impression, and you can't
change it unless they see for
themselves, or are willing to be
objective and open up their eyes
and see the progress that's being
made.

parts
of it, by the emergency finan-
cial manager. It's proven that
between the two of them they
have been able to do a remark-
able job in putting the city of
Detroit in a position to succeed.
Judge Steven Rhodes has also
been outstanding.
TMD: One of your major
accomplishments as mayor was
attracting developers to Detroit.
How were you able to do that
and how can Duggan do the
same in the coming years?
Archer: We were very com-
mitted to bringing jobs into the
city of Detroit. We needed jobs
and we needed to have that kind
of opportunity in the city of
Detroit. One of my friends, Al
