DETROIT (AP) — Detroit voters are going to the polls to choose between a former health care executive and a sheriff competing for a job whose powers are limited by a state-appointed emergency manager.
Polls and fundraising favor Mike Duggan, the ex-head of the Detroit Medical Center who'd be the first white mayor in 40 years in the black-majority city.
His challenger is Wayne County Sheriff Benny Napoleon, a former Detroit police chief.
Whoever wins Tuesday will operate under tight constraints from state-appointed emergency manager Kevyn Orr, who's pushing Detroit through federal bankruptcy proceedings to attack an accumulated debt of $18 billion.
Detroit has undergone a sharp economic and demographic decline over six-plus decades, with the population falling from 1.8 million in 1950 to a remnant of 700,000, largely low-income residents today.
