“Today we mourn the loss of Wayne County Commissioner Jewel C. Ware. Commissioner Ware was a fearless and tireless advocate for constituents who she faithfully served for 25 years. She was a lifelong community activist, a champion for seniors and will always be remembered as the standard for public servants in Wayne County. Our hearts are heavy, and our prayers and condolences go out to her family and friends during this very difficult time.”

Members of the Detroit Caucus Executive Committee include state Reps. Sherry Gay-Dagnogo, Tyrone Carter, Tenisha Yancey and Joe Tate.
