New Leadership Delivering Results for Our Community

My name is Michael White and I am passionate about working families and job security in Washtenaw County and Michigan. I am the Democratic candidate for County Commissioner 5th district seat in Ypsilanti and Augusta Township. As a proud working resident and community leader of Ypsilanti Township, I share the thoughts and concerns of our working families and I have witnessed them be muted or go continually delayed.

We must fight together for change at both the local and state levels of government. It's time to inspire hope, create opportunity, and support efforts that will make our causes better for our communities throughout Washtenaw County. I am dedicated to working with the residents of this district to bring about the kinds of change that will help all our residents build healthy, prosperous, and sustainable homes, schools, businesses, and communities.

I am currently the Chair of Eastern Washtenaw Democratic Club and a Senior Training Manager Design Engineer at AT&T for the past 14 years. In addition to my work experience, I have a Bachelor of Science degree from Eastern Michigan University, a Master of Science degree in Organizational Leadership from Central Michigan University, and completing my Doctorate in Educational Technology at Central Michigan University.

As an Army Veteran that served our country, I continue to serve my community with the same passion and concern.  My education, background, and love for our community gives me confidence that I have the skill set, passion, and heart to truly impact and sustain positive change county wide.
