DETROIT (WJBK) -

Following his speech Friday, Gov. Rick Snyder fielded questions from his hand-picked audience inside Detroit Public TV's studio on the campus of Wayne St. University.

Use the video player above to watch the Q&A in four parts.

Earlier in the day, Snyder declared a financial emergency in Detroit, pushing the city closer to having a state-appointed emergency manager control its finances.

Questions include:
Have you selected a manager?
Is this a loss of democratic voice in Detroit?
Can these issues be solved in 18 months?
How will the city raise revenue?
What's the role for elected officials?
Why only a Detroit EM, and not a regional emergency manager?
