Detroit to get manager after years of trouble

DETROIT — Governor Rick Snyder of Michigan announced Friday that the city of Detroit is so snarled in financial woes that the state must appoint an emergency manager to lead it out of disaster.

‘‘There is probably no city that is more financially challenged in the entire United States. If you look at the quality of services for citizens it’s ranked among the worst. So we went from the top to the bottom over the last 50 or 60 years,’’ Snyder told city residents in a town-hall-style meeting that was broadcast live on local television stations across the city.
