Ken Cockrel Jr. became Mayor of Detroit, Michigan, as of 12:01am, though he has already been taking steps to shape city government.
Ken Cockrel Jr. announced the appointment Thursday, less than 12 hours before he becomes mayor.
The 57-year-old Barren is Cockrel's second high-profile appointment in as many days. A former federal prosecutor, Saul Green, will be deputy mayor.
