Genoa Township voters will see two Democrats on their November ballot for the township’s four township trustee positions – a marketing expert and a former nurse.
Matthew McClanahan and Rachel Becker are part of a slate of 39 Democrats running for positions throughout the county.
“An election with a single choice isn’t an election. It’s a coronation,” McClanahan said.
McClanahan’s priority will be infrastructure.
“Infrastructure investments from roads to high-speed internet will be the keys to attracting future community members and providing business with the best opportunity to grow,” he said.
Sidewalks on Grand River, more senior services, and expanded parks and trails will be among Becker’s priorities for Genoa Township.
McClanahan is president of Moving Forward Marketing, an advertising agency and business consulting company. He said the skills he would bring to the board include developing solutions for complex problems through listening, providing a different point of view, and focusing on long term strategic thinking and planning.
He and his wife, Jessica, have two young children who attend area elementary schools. He has a marketing degree from Michigan State University.
Becker was a nurse for 40 years at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Pontiac and Henry Ford Hospitals in downtown Detroit and West Bloomfield. She has a nursing degree from Henry Ford Hospital School of Nursing as well as a bachelor’s degree from Michigan State University.
