Ficano’s still in office. You can still place a bet on how long he stays.

News Hits wanted to remind our readers that Wayne County Executive Robert Ficano remains in office. Which means that you still have the opportunity to win a "Detroit Hustles Harder" T-shirt by predicting the date and time of his departure in our Ficano Exit Poll contest. 

Along with the when, we're also asking entrants to say how they think Ficano's goodbye will come: resignation before the end of his term in 2014, successful recall election, or completes term and leaves office. 

Ties will be settled with a random draw. Please send entries to

As we said when first announcing this public-spirited contest a few weeks back, you can also bet on Ficano finishing his term and winning re-election to another. If that happens, Big Bob will get a shirt as well.
