About the event
The Ford School's Center for Local, State, and Urban Policy (CLOSUP) will discuss findings from the Michigan Public Policy Survey, which asked leaders from 1,329 of Michigan's local governments to report on the future of public services in their jurisdictions in the aftermath of the Great Recession. The survey's results show that a majority of Michigan's local leaders think our system of funding local governments is broken. CLOSUP Director Barry Rabe, Program Manager Thomas Ivacko, and Project Manager Debra Horner will present on the survey findings and the solutions suggested by these leaders.
This event is part of the year-long celebration of President Ford's centennial, honoring a citizen, public servant, and leader.
