Gov. Rick Snyder today will name Roy S. Roberts, a former vice president of General Motors Corp., as the next emergency manager of the troubled Detroit Public Schools, sources close to the governor have confirmed to The Detroit News.
The offer was made by Snyder this morning to Roberts, but a formal contract has yet to be signed, sources say. The governor will be introducing Roberts at a news conference at 2:30 p.m. at his office at Cadillac Place.
