LANSING, Mich. — Senator Coleman A. Young II (D–Detroit) released the following statement after news broke of former Flint and Detroit Public Schools’ emergency manager Darnell Earley’s $83,000 settlement:

“If most of us poison 10,000 children or kill nine people, we would go to jail. If you are one of Governor Rick Snyder’s emergency manager henchmen, apparently you get an $83,000 performance bonus.”
