Detroit mayor names new aide

From Times Wire Reports

Detroit Democratic Mayor Kwame M. Kilpatrick named a new chief of staff a day after the woman who previously held the post resigned amid allegations that she and the mayor had lied under oath about an affair.

Kandia Milton, who has served as deputy chief of staff, was appointed to Christine Beatty’s job, Kilpatrick announced in a written statement.

The mayor’s office also said he planned to address the city for the first time since the scandal broke, with an address tonight from his church.
