The following letter was submitted by Michael Glaab:
I am a life long resident of Huron Township and have spent half of my life volunteering and being actively involved in our community and local government.
I have made it a personal goal to help improve our overall community. I have served as a Township Trustee for 8 years and on the following committees and boards; Local Development Finance Authority, Zoning Board of Appeals, Planning Commission and Downtown Development Authority, Huron School District Board of Education and Huron Township Applefest Committee-Chairman for 12 years.
Our community is beginning to see major improvements come to fruition. Last year the long- awaited Waltz Rd. bridge was completed. It wasn’t easy to get this project approved and finished, but with the persistence of the Township Board and working with Wayne County, the project became a reality and has been a huge success for our residents and businesses. Our community now has a safe and aesthetically pleasing bridge. Residents will soon start to see the rebuilding of streets and sidewalks in the downtown area. This area has not had a major public improvement in over 30 years. Once completed our residents will have a vastly improved downtown area to be proud of. The area will provide a place for community events, take walks, ride bikes to and from the Huron Clinton Metro Park trails and also make it easier to visit downtown shops and restaurants.
These projects as well as development at the North East end along Pennsylvania and Sibley Roads will continue the evolution of our Township. My top priority is to make sure the developers deliver top quality projects which will enhance the desirability of our community. I will not settle for inferior developments that will detract from our wonderful township.
Because of my experience over the past several years, I am in a unique position to continue to lead our community.
Please support me in the upcoming 2020 election. I will be honored to serve you.
