Oakland commissioners head to Washington for county conference

Five members of the Oakland County Board of Commissioners will be traveling to Washington, D.C. this week to participate in the “Michigan County Commissioners White House Conference” on Aug. 8. Commissioners Shelley Goodman Taub, Hugh D. Crawford, Adam Kochenderfer, Doug Tietz, and Wade Fleming will be joining other county commissioners from across the state to participate in an event described by the White House Office of Intergovernmental Affairs as an opportunity to “develop a working relationship between the White House/Federal Agencies and the County Commissioners of Michigan.”

“This is an exciting opportunity for local leaders in Michigan to give their views on key issues directly to White House decision-makers,” stated Oakland County Commissioner Shelley Goodman Taub, who also serves as president of the Michigan Association of Counties (MAC) Board of Directors. “We appreciate the administration’s outreach and look forward to the dialogue.”

“This is a unique opportunity for county commissioners,” said Commissioner Hugh Crawford. “I am honored to have been invited and look forward to participating.”

This event will be similar to two other gatherings of county commissioners, from Florida and Pennsylvania, that took place at the White House earlier this summer. Representatives from the following Michigan counties will be attending on August 8th: Alger, Antrim, Barry, Bay, Berrien, Clinton, Genesee, Grand Traverse, Ingham, Kalamazoo, Kent, Leelanau, Mackinac, Macomb, Manistee, Mecosta, Oakland, Oscoda, Otsego, Ottawa, St. Joseph, Tuscola, and Washtenaw.
