Oakland County Executive David Coulter and his team of deputy executives were sworn in Thursday afternoon at Oakland County Circuit Court to complete the remainder of the current term of office which runs through December 31. Chief Circuit Court Judge Shalina Kumar administered the oaths of office to Coulter, Chief Deputy County Executive Hilarie Chambers, and Deputy County Executives Sean Carlson, April Lynch, and Rudy Hobbs.
The Oakland County Board of Commissioners appointed Coulter county executive on Aug. 16, 2019, following the death of County Executive L. Brooks Patterson, who was in his seventh term. Coulter and his administration have provided leadership and stability not only during the transition, but also throughout the COVID-19 pandemic — one of Oakland County’s most challenging times.
On Tuesday, Nov. 3, Coulter was elected twice: Once to serve the remainder of the current term and the other to begin his first four-year term as county executive on Jan. 1, 2021. He will be sworn in to his first full term before Dec. 31.
