DETROIT — Crain’s Detroit Business reports that a coalition of 23 metro Detroit CEOs from most of the region’s largest companies are making a public push to get local political leaders to rally around a regional mass transit plan to put before voters in November.

Led by DTE Energy Chairman/CEO Gerry Anderson, the group, which employs nearly 200,000 people in Michigan, wrote a letter calling for action on regional transit in the wake of Amazon.com passing on Detroit for a potential site for its planned 50,000-employee second headquarters.

The group’s letter did not specifically endorse any one plan for solving metro Detroit’s decades-long regional battle over mass transportation. For the full story, click here.
