LANSING, MI – Governor Gretchen Whitmer released the following statement on the passing of Eugene Driker:

“Eugene was a preeminent attorney, a lifelong and untiring advocate for his home city of Detroit, and a friend. He served with distinction as a Wayne State University governor and spent every day working to enrich and uplift his community. Eugene’s achievements in urban affairs, law, arts, and culture leave a legacy for every Michigander to carry forward. My thoughts are with Eugene’s family and friends.”
