The Detroit News has endorsed union-friendly, budget-balancing Mayor Bill Wild in August 5th Democratic primary for Wayne County Executive.
In an editorial that appeared on Friday, June 27th, the News writes:
Wayne County residents need more than just new leadership; they need a leader who will bury the scandals and mismanagement of the past several years and set the county on a new course centered on both growth and good government. Westland Mayor Bill Wild offers the best hope for a new beginning in Wayne County.
…He will focus on core services, and make sure taxpayer money is used wisely.
Wild is one of the few candidates in the race without a history in Wayne County government. Given the checkered nature of the county’s history, a fresh name is attractive.
Bill Wild should be elected as the Democratic nominee for Wayne County Executive on Aug. 5.
Like the hundreds of voters who are joining Team Wild campaign events in Detroit, Western Wayne, Downriver and elsewhere, and the many more who are responding on the phones and the doors, the Detroit News recognizes that Wayne County needs change. And Bill Wild is the best candidate to get the job done.
