Editorial: Detroit Should Not Give Ford a $104 Million Tax Break

Ford, as expected, launched a charm initiative this week to win over the Detroit City Council and secure a $100 million tax break from the city to support its rehab of a train station near downtown.

Detroit’s city council members, for a litany of reasons, should reject the request.
