Hazel Park, MI – Alissa Sullivan is one of six people running for four spots on Hazel Park City Coucil. The two highest vote-getters will have four-year terms, the third and fourth highest will get two-year terms. Also on the Nov. 7, 2017 ballot are AmyAubry, Anja Barmettler, Charles E. Gladue, Bethany Holland, and Andy LeCureaux.
Sullivan is a former high school teacher and job coach who now owns her own dog walking and pet-sitting business. She serves on the Planning Commission and the Hazel Park Arts Council, which includes Co-Chairing the Hazel Park Art Fair.
“I believe that I am a good candidate for many reasons. I have a lot of experience currently working with the current administration, which is really important. We have a great foundation of knowledge in those members of the current council, and I hope that we retain them so they can help us learn to be the effective leaders that we need to be. I have, I think, a fresh viewpoint from the people that have maybe been more entrenched in the city. And I’ve got a ton of energy, which I think is really helpful in situations where you are facing a bit of adversity. But I think creative thinking, thinking outside of the box, I come from a volunteer background, grass roots, doing a lot with very little and I really want to bring those skills to our community,” she said.
