Eric McPherson '83 sworn in to Oakland County Road Commission

Detroit Catholic Central congratulates Eric D. McPherson ‘83, who was sworn in as a new member of the road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) Board. 

“I look forward to being part of this organization. I come from a background of labor and blue-collar workers and welcome the opportunity for new policy-making habits that work for labor, management, residents and users of the roads,” said McPherson. “Safe roads and looking for new ways of funding the roads must remain priorities.”

McPherson cautioned that one of the issues the agency will need to contend with will be the changes in the automotive industry. “The automotive revolution, with electric vehicles, batteries and charging stations will be innovations that this Board will face and have to work with,” he said.

McPherson graduated from Catholic Central in 1983 and is a 37 year member of SMART Local 80. He has been a business representative for the organization for 17 years, is a trustee of the Local’s Insurance Fund, is a building trades journeyman, has completed continuing education classes in upgrading labor, is a trustee of the Michigan Maritime Trades Port Council and is chair of the Oakland County Building Authority.
