Now that State Senator Virg Bernero has won the Lansing mayoral race, we speak with a consultant to find out what are the most pressing issues he'll need to address in office.
According to Jeff Williams of Lansing's Public Sector Consultants there are three primary issues or "To do" items for the next mayor.
1) City budget: Balance it as revenue decreases and health care costs continue to rise.
2) Economy and city vitality: Keep job creation and expansion going in Lansing.
3) Lansing Schools: Work with the school district to help take pressure off its bottom line so the district can spend the money on bettering education.
