Yes, let's scoff at a $125,000 grant. Obviously there's thousands of others lining up to give more money, we don't need this.

Gistok:

that's a $125k that we're by no means entitled to...and it may be just a drop in the bucket to Comerica, but it isn't just a drop in the bucket to Wayne State LS...

Comerica knows they have to do some damage control after the move announcement recently. You can expect several other PR moves . The Ernie Harwell commercial for Comerica Bank and the Tigers /Comerica Park early this week was an example of it. It talked about Comerica's continued commitment to Detroit, Its a little hard to swallow after what they did to the city when it was down, but they are a business afterall.

Comerica has always given to the city. Just because this happened after their announcement doesn't necessarily make it a PR move meant to be damage control. I'm not happy about the move either, but let's keep things in perspective.

I certainly agree Comerica has been most generous to the city, and hopefully will continue but I do feel you will see a PR movement to reinforce that. I base this on a discussion with a good friend who works in Comerica HeadOffice who said they had a meeting two weeks ago due to the fact that there was a tremendous negative backlash from the local community in the form of closed bank accounts and negative emails etc.. They met to determine how to counteract this trend here locally..The Detroit market is still a very viable one and they don't want to lose it nor get bad publicity in markets they are entering.

Hmm. Well, keep the negative emails coming then. Maybe we can milk a few more mil out of the deal.
