Richard Burr
Assistant City Editor / Politics and Government
As the assistant city editor for politics and government editor, I oversee reporting by six reporters. They cover Michigan state government, Michigan's congressional delegation, the environment, health care and assorted outstate Michigan issues. I have worked at The Detroit News since 1987. I worked on the editorial page for 23 years and am a three-time past president of the now-defunct national Association of Opinion Page Editors.
