Monique Baker McCormick (Dist. 6)

Monique Baker McCormick is a Democrat, mother, veteran of the U.S. Army and businesswoman with a master's degree in business from Walsh College of Business and Accountancy. On Nov. 6, 2018, Baker McCormick's birthday and 10th year of advocating for residents of Northwest Detroit, she was elected as Wayne County Commissioner in District 6 and proudly serves the community where she was born and raised.

She is Vice-Chair of the Committee on Health and Human Services and serves on the committees on Economic Development, Ways and Means and Public Safety, Judiciary and Homeland Security.

She also serves as Vice Chair of the Special Committee on Senior Citizens and Veterans Affairs and serves on the Detroit/Wayne County Port Authority Board of Directors.

Commissioner Baker McCormick is a graduate of Henry Ford High School and Ludington Magnet Middle School located in her District. She was an active parent and former parent president in the Detroit Public School Community District at J.R. King Elementary School, Ludington Magnet Middle School and Cass Technical High School, from which both of her daughters graduated.

As parent president, she was successful in organizing a protest which kept an emergency manager from closing Ludington. In 2015, Monique was nominated by Congresswoman Brenda Lawrence to represent the 14th Congressional District in the prestigious Congressional Black Caucus Leadership Institute in Washington, D.C.

Also, as a longtime member of the Coalition of Labor Union Women, Commissioner Baker McCormick has been committed to fighting to improve conditions for working families.Commissioner Baker McCormick has advocated for jobs not jails, which focuses on education-based incarceration by creating a skilled workforce, increasing income and county revenue. As a result, we decrease crime while improving our quality of life.

She believes that spending more dollars on workforce and economic development activities creates better jobs and vibrant, safe, clean and green neighborhoods.

In Commissioner McCormick's first term, she is fighting the "War on Trash" - an educational anti-littering campaign she created in her Northwest Detroit district. Commissioner McCormick believes that where there is trash, there is more crime. So, she partnered with the Downtown Detroit Partnership, Detroit Public Schools Community District and District 6 residents and volunteers to clean up the neighborhood. The Commissioner purchased and placed decorative trash cans throughout District 6. She coordinated residents to adopt a trash can to maintain and clean near their homes. Students in District 6 schools also participated in beautification projects writing, drawing or creating songs about clean neighborhoods using the slogan "Don't Stop and Drop!"Thanks to hundreds of volunteers, the War on Trash has been a success.Commissioner McCormick also was appointed to serve on the board of Wayne County HealthChoice, which provides a variety of health care options for small businesses and seniors who qualify.She is also a member of the National Association of Black County Officials and was appointed vice chair of the National Association of Counties (NACo) steering committee.
