Eric Coleman - About
ericcoleman.org, 1 April 2014 [cached]
Eric Coleman, an Oakland County Commissioner, has represented the 23rd District since 1996, where he is the longest serving Democrat and African American on the Oakland County Commission.
Commissioner Coleman serves on the County's Personnel Committee as the minority Vice Chairman. One of his successful initiatives was requiring mandatory cultural diversity training for Oakland County supervisors and managers. He has also served as Vice Chairman on the Finance and Personnel Committee and Planning and Building Committee.
Initiatives such as the Food Handling Ordinance (requiring training on safe food handling and hand washing for restaurant managers and employees), the Tattoo Parlor Ordinance and support services for youth aging out of foster care are a few of Eric's initiatives that have not only benefited residents in his district but other Oakland County residents as well.
Supporter of Schools and Education
Eric is a vocal advocate for public education. By becoming the first African American elected to the Southfield School Board, Coleman opened the doors for others who aspired leadership positions in the school system... As a member of the Southfield School Board, Eric served as a President, Secretary, and Treasurer, from 1986 to 1990. He has been a champion for diversity and his progressive leadership demonstrates an unwavering record of inclusion, excellence and community service.
Parks and Recreation
As an Oakland County Parks and Recreation Commissioner in 1999, Coleman recognized the need for more parks in southern Oakland County. He then initiated dialogue between Southfield and Oakland County which resulted in what is now called Catalpa Oaks Park. This beautiful 25-acre park became the first recreation venue in the Southfield area that is owned and operated by Oakland County Parks and Recreation.
Local Business
Always a strong proponent of economic empowerment, Eric partnered in developing the "Bid & Breakfast Program" to assist small, minority and women-owned businesses in gaining access to government contracts. Recognizing that our economic base in southeast Michigan is strengthened through regional cooperation and collaboration, he has taken a decisive role as Co-Chairman of the Tri-County Economic Development Task Force and member of the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments (SEMCOG). At SEMCOG, Eric serves on the Executive Committee and chairs the 20-member Finance and Budget Committee.
National Leadership
In 2007, Eric was sworn in by the Honorable Dennis Archer to served as President of the National Association of Counties (NACo).

This free program provides residents with significant savings on medication. He also led national campaigns to protect children against sexual exploitation and against the growing proliferation of Methamphetamine.
Eric continues to seek new solutions during these challenging economic times as a member of NACo's Executive Committee and Large Urban Caucus.
