Meet The Wayne County Executive Candidates-Kevin McNamara

July 30, 2014

"There are a lot of services the communities don't want, they don't care for, they don't use. We've got to get rid of those services."

Kevin McNamara, candidate for Wayne County Executive.

Wayne County Executive Bob Ficano faces ten challengers in next Tuesday’s election. Whoever wins the Democratic primary is expected to have no trouble beating a Republican challenger in November. One of the leading candidates in the primary is County Commissioner Kevin McNamara. His father was the County Executive for 15 years, from 1987 to 2002. Ed McNamara built a political powerhouse that came to be known as the “McNamara Machine”. Kevin McNamara challenged that description when WDET’s Pat Batcheller asked him whether he would run county government the way his father did.
