Macomb County featured two of the most hotly contested races for mayor on Tuesday as term limits barred longtime Warren Mayor Jim Fouts from seeking a fifth term, and embattled Eastpointe Mayor Monique Owens failed to make it out the primary.
Christina Hall, a political reporter covering Macomb County at the Detroit Free Press, joined Stephen Henderson on Detroit Today Wednesday to discuss the results of the elections and what they mean for the county moving forward.

Christina Hall is a reporter covering Macomb County at the Detroit Free Press. She says while Warren politics have been “very rough and tumble” for the past several years, the results of this election could signal a better working relationship between city council and the mayor’s office.
“I don’t know if there’ll be as much debate or angst potentially, between the incoming mayor and the incoming Council,” said Hall.
