Joel Ferguson has been among Lansing’s most influential people in business, politics and community service for many years. The founder and president of Ferguson Development is also active in Democratic party politics statewide and nationally. And he currently serves as president of the Michigan State University Board of Trustees.
Current State’s Mark Bashore and MLive's Angela Wittrock ask Ferguson to update the much-anticipated Red Cedar Gateway project. They also discuss other development projects, Democratic politics, race and the region’s future.
