Meet The Wayne County Executive Candidates-Bob Ficano

August 1, 2014

By Pat Batcheller

"All of us have been in a position--and I take responsibility, I'm the person at the top--Everybody's been in a position where someone has betrayed them at some time in their lives."

Wayne County Executive Bob Ficano.

Wayne County Executive Bob Ficano faces ten challengers in next Tuesday’s election. Whoever wins the Democratic primary is expected to have no trouble beating a Republican challenger in November. Ficano faces what may be his toughest re-election campaign yet due to a string of recent scandals and controversies, including a $175-million deficit, an unfinished and over-budget jail, and an FBI investigation that’s still ongoing. WDET’s Pat Batcheller asked Ficano why voters should re-elect him…after four now-former aides were convicted of corruption. Click on the audio links above to hear the conversation.
