8/3/17: Detroit Primary / Wayne County Jail / Water Shut-offs

Last Updated by Cheryl Spitale Jones on


Detroit's primary is next Tuesday and key races include the Mayor, City Council and City Clerk. The MiWeek team debates who will be the top vote getters. Wayne County Executive Warren Evans says he will move ahead with negotiations on Rock Ventures' proposal to develop a new justice complex in exchange for the land where the unfinished County jail now sits. The MiWeek team discusses what this means.

Plus, a new study links greater health issues to people who have their water shut off for unpaid bills. In a special One Detroit report, we meet a community advocate who is trying to help residents get their water turned back on. 

And the MiWeek team analyzes the recent upheaval among President Donald Trump's communications team.
