Benton Harbor gets new Emergency Manager

BENTON HARBOR (WKZO) -- After several tumultuous years, Joseph Harris is now done as the emergency financial manager in Benton Harbor, and 27-year-old Tony Saunders is taking over.  Saunders had previously been serving as an advisor for the Detroit suburb of Highland Park as that city overcame a massive deficit and is now in the black.

Harris was appointed by former Governor Jennifer Granholm to oversee Benton Harbor's finances, but admitted he got off on the wrong foot with city officials and was never able to forge a good working relationship with the city commission.
