Michigan Governor Rick Snyder said on Monday he has not offered the job of emergency financial manager of Detroit to anyone but does have a "short list" of candidates if he decides that the state should take over management of the city.
"I have a short list," Snyder told reporters after a luncheon speech to the Detroit regional Chamber of Commerce. "I haven't made an offer to anyone. We're talking to people."
The Detroit News reported on Sunday, quoting anonymous sources, that Snyder had selected an emergency manager, offered the job and expected a response this week. The person offered the job was not identified, but the article said it was not former Washington, D.C., Mayor Anthony Williams.
