Former Detroit Mayor Bing Remembers Ali, Questions Rising Demolition Costs

Groups supporting the “My Brother’s Keeper” Initiative are meeting in Detroit this week.

And they are hailing the humanitarian efforts of the late boxer Muhammad Ali.

One person who saw Ali’s work first-hand is fellow former star pro athlete, and ex-Detroit Mayor, Dave Bing.

He’s been in the news recently regarding the cost of demolishing blighted buildings in Detroit which has skyrocketed since Bing left office in January, 2014.

Bing talked about demolition work and the efforts of Ali with WDET’s Quinn Klinefelter.

I grab news in the morning, check the papers and the wires, call sources and take a big gulp of coffee. That’s how I start the day.
