“I am offering myself as a candidate for 1st Ward City Commission. I am a true public servant who enjoys working with and for residents in Kentwood in order to make it a better place to live, work and play. My educational background in Public Administration and Emphasis in Accounting, 6 years of experience on the Kentwood Planning Commission, and commitment to people, has led me to run for the 1st Ward Seat. I owe a debt of gratitude to Mayor Richard Root for selecting me to serve on the Kentwood Planning Commission and inspiring me to be the best I can be. My experience on the Planning Commission has been very valuable. Now it is time for me to take my service to Kentwood to the next level as a 1st Ward City Commissioner. Your voice matters! Make it count and flood the polls and vote for me.
