​Pontiac, Michigan -- There is no additional information to release today about Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson as he remains under care at McLaren Oakland Hospital in Pontiac.

Chief Deputy County Executive Gerald Poisson met with Patterson's staff this morning to go over county business including working on passing Patterson's balanced three-year budget recommendation.

"Brooks' team has been in place a long time," Poisson said. "They all do a great job."
