Seeing Detroit through the eyes of Detroiters was the main focus of a trip taken by Speaker of the House Jase Bolger, a Republican from Marshall, Speaker Pro Tem John Walsh, a Republican from Livonia, and State Representative Harvey Santana, a Democrat from Detroit.
The two Republicans and a couple of staff members joined Rep. Santana at his invitation to see what people in his neighborhood and throughout his district in southwest Detroit are seeing every morning when they wake up and what their children see as they come and go from school.
