Hazel Park, MI – Hazel Park City Councilperson Andy (Andrew) LeCureaux is running for re-election on the Nov. 7, 2017 ballot. There are four seats on the ballot with the top two vote-getters taking four-year terms and the second pair getting two year terms. This is because the city is adjusting to having four year staggered terms instead of the previous two year terms. Bethany Holland who was appointed to a partial term when Jeff Keeton became Mayor, is running again. Also on the ballot are Amy Aubry, Anja Barmettler, Charles E. Gladue and Alissa Sullivan.
LeCureaux was first elected to Council in 2001. He is the owner of Andrew’s Appliance Repair and has obtained Level Two Elected Official Certification from Michigan Municipal League and Public Official Certification from Saginaw Valley State University.
Among the accomplishments and goals LeCureaux spoke of was a passion for the arts that has emerged in recent years. “We have our 6th annual Art Fair coming up. Myself and the current Mayor Jeff Keeton are co-founders of the Hazel Park Arts Council. And arts are just one of these things that a society needs, a community needs. Whether it’s the art installation with some sculptors, some of the mural that we’re doing, art is just something that makes the city walkable, friendly, interesting. The Art Fair also works as a celebration and a place to demonstrate that Hazel Park actually has a very large, growing, arts community. We are reasonably priced properties and the artist community is coming together in Hazel Park. It’s very neat.”
