About This Meeting

Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson, Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan, Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel and Wayne County Executive Warren Evans addressed the Detroit Economic Club as The New Big Four at Cobo during the 2015 North American International Auto Show.

The New Big Four focused on issues that impact not only their respective counties, but also Southeastern Michigan as a whole, including public safety and retaining college graduates.

“We’re trying to get people to understand, and people internally, that there’s a new form of government – a new way of doing business. Rather than trying to find the politically correct answer, find the right solutions to move forward,” said Hackel.
