Flashpoint 8/25/19: A sit down with new Oakland County Executive Dave Coulter

Watch Flashpoint at 10 a.m. every Sunday on Local 4

DETROITHere is what to expect on Sunday's episode of Flashpoint: 

On this week's episode of Flashpoint, there will be an overdue discussion about a report from the Detroit Free Press that found Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan's administration has not been honest about the lengths to which it tried to support the "Make Your Date" nonprofit.

But up first, a little more than a week after L. Brooks Patterson was laid to rest, Oakland County has a new county executive for the first time in more than two decades. But to many, the race to fill the seat was very poorly managed and in a number of different ways. 

Dave Coulter, the former mayor of Ferndale, is here to discuss his position as the new face of Oakland County.
