Collins new Wayne County deputy executive

Former U.S. attorney and Wayne County judge Jeffrey G. Collins has been appointed as the new Wayne County deputy executive, to replace Azzam E. Elder, who resigned Thursday.

Scandal has shaken the county’s leadership since it was reported that former Chief Development Officer Turkia Mullin received a $200,000 severance payment after voluntarily leaving to run Detroit Metropolitan Airport.

Collins was a Wayne County Circuit Judge who ran as a Republican for a seat on the Michigan Supreme Court in 1998. He lost to current Justice Michael F. Cavanagh.
