DETROIT (WKZO) -- Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson isn't apologizing for comments quoted in The New Yorker magazine this week, but noted in a radio interview that the remarks were made 20 years ago.  Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan and City Council President Brenda Jones issued a joint statement Tuesday asking for a prompt apology.

In a statement, Patterson said he looks forward to working with Duggan and does not want the article to damage their relationship.  He added he was disappointed that the article left out discussions on how the suburban county has helped to have a positive impact on all of Metro Detroit.
