Hazel Park, MI – Hazel Park Councilperson Mike Webb is running unopposed for Mayor on the Nov. 7, 2017 ballot. There is contention for the City Council seats and an election will still be held.
Webb has served on the Hazel Park City Council since 2001. Prior to his service on the council he served as a Planning Commissioner for several terms, and he continues to serve on the Memorial Day Committee. Professionally, he is the owner of Taylor Auto Maintenance, located on John R Rd. in Hazel Park.
He is proud of the accomplishments of Council over the years. “As you’ve seen in the past couple of years we’ve created a lot of new jobs, a lot of new development,” he said. “One of them being by the Hazel Park Race Track, the new commerce center there. We’ve got Amazon in there. We’ve got a couple other new businesses coming here. They’re looking at 300-400 jobs, good paying jobs. We have the new development at 8 Mile and Dequindre; we have a new Secretary of State going right there on Dequindre. And we have a Save A Lot that was a desolate corner for years and they decided to make a very big investment and they’ve done a very nice job. As well as we have new restaurants in town – Joe Bar, Mabel Gray, some other new developments as well.”
