In Oakland County, GOP politics are stable, with Oakland County Republican Party Chair Rocky Raczkowski earning a “do-over” from the party faithful for another two-year term. “I have some things I want to accomplish – while I respect the electorate, I don’t feel comfortable with the inexperience and spendthrift leadership of (Oakland County Executive) Dave Coulter and (county board chair) Dave Woodward. I will not rest until we make it right.” We send our best wishes for another term along with ‘Get well wishes’ to Raczkowski, who recently battled back COVID-19. “I’m 100 percent now. It was five days I was down for the count.” Raczkowski said he “always wore a mask. I sometimes got ridiculed about it, but I wore my mask.” The county party chairman said he was able to contact trace his exposure back to interaction with President Trump’s outgoing HUD Secretary Ben Carson. Carson reported he tested positive following an election night event at the White House.
