"If you don't take on corruption...we're not going to be able to gain the trust of people."

John Dalton, Republican candidate for Wayne County Executive.

Voters will elect a new Wayne County Executive on November 4th. Incumbent Robert Ficano lost his re-election bid in August. The county's financial problems and corruption charges against some of Ficano's staff led to his defeat, and a push for change. That's what Republican candidate John Dalton promises to bring to the job. The 24-year-old Schoolcraft College student sits on Livonia's Human Relations Commission. He admits that he's young, but Dalton tells WDET Morning Edition Host and Senior News Editor Pat Batcheller county government needs a fresh face to solve its problems and tackle corruption.
