Hackel Touts Green Macomb Initiative, Budget Success During State of Macomb Address

Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel delivered his annual State of the County address Wednesday evening.

Hackel spoke to an invitation-only crowd at Macomb County Community College.  It was his sixth such address.

During his remarks, he touted the county’s Green Macomb initiative to cultivate green spaces with community-specific strategies.  He also spoke of a redesign of the county’s website, cited six straight years of balanced budgets, and celebrated the placement of Selfridge Air National Guard Base on a short list of possible facilities to support the new F-35 fighter jet.

Hackel is the first person to hold the position of Macomb County Executive.  He was first elected to the job in 2010.
