Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan will give his first State of the City address on Feb. 26.
His office announced the date Monday.

It will be held at 7 p.m. in the Erma Henderson Auditorium at the Coleman A. Young Municipal Center.

Attendance is by invitation only, but the event will be live streamed on ClickOnDetroit.com.

Duggan, an ex-county prosecutor and former chief of the Detroit Medical Center, won last November’s election, defeating Wayne County Sheriff Benny Napoleon.

Duggan is Detroit's first white mayor since the early 1970s.

State-appointed emergency manager Kevyn Orr runs Detroit's finances and the city is undergoing the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history.
