Are you actively resisting the appointment of  emergency managers?

“I am not resisting actively, because I thought we voted not to have an emergency manager. How can the governor just appoint an EM after we said no? I voted on it, but I am not doing anything else.”
—Teshay Ragsdale

“What is the mayor doing? I heard that people were going down there to stand in front of the door so that the EM could not get in. I am not going to jail for that. I need someone to do something about the crime in the city and help our city.”
— Crystal Powell

“I am totally against it, but I did not do anything to protest. I wish my city did not have to have an EM, but I guess we were not doing our job. Somebody who does not know anything about Detroit had to come here; that’s sad.”
— Demetrius Pope
