New Leadership Delivering Results for Our Community

My name is Michael White and I am a candidate for Washtenaw County Commissioner District 5.  Thank you for the potential opportunity to serve in a leadership role in our community as we embark upon the new normal during and post COVID-19.

My plans for our future are bold and robust to empower residents of Washtenaw County to achieve the kinds of change in government that allow all families regardless of color, race or gender to labor effectively together to build healthy, prosperous, and sustainable homes, schools, businesses and  communities.  These are plans that will insure the stability and economic future of Ypsilanti and Augusta Townships.  Our communities will lead in local and state issues while sustaining the ingredients that make our townships quality places to live, work, learn, pray and play.

My role will be to pass resolutions which establish procedure for your county government.  You can expect that I will:

  1. Effectively conduct legislative oversight and peak over the shoulders of our administrators to insure your tax dollars are funding county programs with fiduciary wisdom.

  2. Listen to your problems and concerns with county agencies, cut through the red tape and get you service or information you deserve.

  3. Provide you with a balanced budget that is cost effective and focused on the future.

  4. Work for improved education, creating better jobs and pay, providing affordable housing and economic justice reform for all families.

As a veteran, I understand serving with courage and dignity.  As a doctoral student and senior manager, I understand the importance of education and resilience.  As a longtime resident and advocate heading many organizations and committees with empathy, passion and concern, I bring my leadership and community experience. 

I am focused on what matters to you and I ask you to support and vote for me, Michael White for Washtenaw County Commissioner District 5.
