LANSING (WKZO) -- For years, state lawmakers have treated Detroit as its own separate, and at times toxic, entity

The tone appears to be changing with the election of Mike Duggan as mayor, as he sat down with House Speaker Jase Bolger of Marshall and Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville of Monroe Tuesday.  The mayor-elect said he is working to mend fences with Lansing and working to get reacquainted with those he knew at the Capitol from his time as the CEO of the Detroit Medical Center.

Bolger and other state lawmakers have recently toured parts of Detroit to get a first-hand look at the issues plaguing the Motor City.
