Dear Huron Township residents,
My name is Antoinette Gracia. I am running for the office of clerk. Most of you will know me as Toni. I am a mother of two adult children; Jennifer Gracia and Jack Jr Gracia, and a grandma of five.
I have lived in Huron Township for 43 years and attended school here.
I have owned and operated my own business (J. & T. Gracia’s Greenhouse) for 35 years. Part of my operations include sales to the public, managing employees, deliveries, keeping deadlines, record keeping & bookkeeping.
I was also active in my boat club serving as Fleet Captain. Some of my responsibilities were safety on the water and recording attendance of boats and members at regattas. I also served on the bylaws committee for over 10 years. I also was involved in fund raising. This experience will be very important for the clerk position.
My platform for running is my passion for Huron Township. I want to promote keeping it up to date without disturbing our small town feel. Keeping our township moving in a forward direction regarding trains blocking intersections and ambulance service is a priority. Striving to keep communication open with you and staying transparent is also very important.
I am available for your questions and concerns always. I am a down to earth person and feel this will make it easy for me to voice your concerns.
Thank you in advance for your vote!
