William C. Cobbs III is running for the governship of Michigan as a Democrat in 2018.
“I am not a politician…I’m a citizen who feels called to serve my community to steer us out of difficult times,” he said. “The state must restore public policy driven by its citizens.”
Cobbs attended Detroit public schools, and worked his way from stock boy in a Detroit clothing store to a Global Vice President in Xerox Corporation. A U.S. Navy veteran, Cobbs is retired from Xerox. “Now I coach promising Fortune 500 Company executives on how to listen to their customers, how to listen to their team and how to win,” he said.
He believes the way to take Michigan forward is to build a solid foundation, emphasizing a long term plan for fixing the state’s infrastructure, investing in a quality K-12 education for the state’s children and assuring access to safe, clean, affordable water.
