Many thanks to the hundreds of people from the metropolitan Detroit region who attended our Wild for a New Wayne County breakfast fund-raiser hosted by Ford Motor Company Executive Chairman Bill Ford Jr.
Mr. Ford graciously hosted the event, which was held at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center in Dearborn, to support my candidacy for Wayne County Executive.
There, I shared my vision and plan to bring vital experience as a small business owner and a budget-balancing mayor to the office of Wayne County Executive.
I am also honored to share with you some of the remarks Bill Ford made at the event. “As a business person, I’m always attracted to people who get things done. Bill Wild did a great job in Westland, he took a budget that was a disaster and turned it around. They have a rainy day fund now, they have more policeman on the street, more firemen. That’s quite a feat, to reduce costs, put some money away and enhance services at the same time. And to do it in a style that reaches across the aisle, that shows you can work with everybody.
