DETROIT, Mi. (My TV20 News at 10) --- Westland Mayor Bill Wild has announced his candidacy to become Wayne County Executive.

In a morning press event, Wild says that residents of Wayne County are tired of scandals and expect more for their tax dollars.

Wild says the Westland community has successfully managed many of the same challenges facing Wayne County, and that this success can be brought to Wayne County.

Incumbent Robert Ficano has held the job since 2002, and hasn't said if he'll run again.

Also planning to run is Wayne County Commissioner Kevin McNamara, who's called a January 23rd news conference.
