Oakland County political gossip

HOLDING OUR BREATH

September 24, 2019

The political drama that led to the appointment of Oakland County Executive Dave Coulter (D) is far from over, according to Oakland County GOP chair Andrew “Rocky” Raczkowski. Rocky and Oakland County Commissioner Michael Spisz (R-Oxford) are hoping to have Coulter removed from office through an Oakland County Circuit Court case claiming the process was illegal. “He’s not doing anything, he’s just appointed a bunch of political appointees, but not a lot of people with private sector or world class experience,” Raczkowski asserted. “Our issue isn’t with the executive, it’s with Mr. Woodward (county commission board chair Dave Woodward) and the Democratic caucus.” Meanwhile, there has yet to be a Republican willing to step up to run for the executive seat in 2020, with several key GOP leaders declaring the seat “unwinnable” for any Republican with President Donald Trump at the top of the November ballot. Rocky dismissed rumors that he’s considering running for the county executive position. “I’m currently running my business. If I feel called, I will do so, but I’m actually trying to lead our caucus and repair things that need to be repaired... I feel some good names will be popping up really soon.”
