2 Oakland County commissioners are interviewing applicants to be county executive today. 21 people applied for the job. One of them is the former chairman of the county board, David Woodward.
The board has scheduled a meeting Friday, and the board may vote to appoint a new executive. The person would serve out the remainder of Patterson’s term in office, which expires at the end of next year. Gerald Poisson was appointed to temporarily replace the late L. Brooks Patterson. Democrats have been jockeying to fill the remainder of Patterson’s term.
