Meet The Wayne County Executive Candidates-William Wild

July 31, 2014

By Pat Batcheller




"I haven't worked at the county. I'm not on the county's pension plan. I haven't voted on these projects that have cost a lot of money."

William Wild, 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 Westland Mayor William Wild. He’s positioned himself as the outsider in the race, having no previous connection to county government. Wild tells WDET’s Pat Batcheller he can take a fresh approach to fixing the county’s problems, such as figuring out what to do with the unfinished county jail in downtown Detroit.
