Learn about the Team at Wayne County, Michigan Investor Relations, including our County Executive, Chief Finical Officer, and Chief Deputy Financial Officer.
Warren C. Evans was elected as Wayne County’s 4th County Executive in 2014 with a strong mandate from voters to restore ethical leadership to Michigan’s largest county as it faced a financial crisis.
Mr. Evans restored fiscal stability to Wayne County as it eliminated a $52 million structural deficit and $82 million accumulated deficit while exiting a consent agreement in just 14 months, when many thought the County was headed to bankruptcy. That progress continues as Wayne County has produced three consecutive budget surpluses, increased funding for the County’s pension system, and reduced unfunded health care liabilities by nearly $1 billion. Wayne County’s financial turnaround has earned repeated credit rating upgrades from three Wall Street credit agencies: Moody’s, Fitch Rating and Standard & Poor’s.
