Mike Duggan is the current mayor of Detroit. When he was first elected in 2013, he became Detroit’s first white mayor in 40 years. Duggan has been credited with reviving Detroit, overseeing the so-called "Motor City Miracle." But he has also attracted the attention of a federal investigation into possible corruption in the city’s handling of demolition contracts.

Mike appears in Episode 19.

Through all of the different kinds of attacks, I have been treated by nothing but warmth and kindness from Detroiters in every neighborhood of the city.
