2 races key for Oakland County Dems to control commission

Oakland County Democrats need to gain one seat to take control of the county Board of Commissioners, and they hope Steven Schwartz of Farmington Hills is the person to help them do it.

"We need to make Oakland County the alternative energy capital of the world," said Schwartz, 54.

Schwartz, who began his career as an assistant city manager in Birmingham, wants to see so-called green-collar jobs be a key to economic development in Michigan's wealthiest county. He's challenging incumbent Republican Mike Rogers, who has represented Farmington and Farmington Hills for the past six years.
