"In 1978, the Detroit Free
Press called Huntington
Woods the 'choicest city' in
which to live. I want to be
part of the team that main-
tains that reputation even
during the challenging 'lean
years' of the 1990s."

"I believe Huntington
Woods has maintained its
reputation as the most
desirable community iri
Oakland County. Our prop-
erty values have remained
high; our educational system
is second to none and the
quality of life and safety in
our community has never
been better."

"This city's residents de-
serve commissioners who act
rather than react. The com-
mission must always re-
member that it does the bid-
ding of its citizens and that
the welfare of its citizens and
the good of the city must over-
ride political benefits and per-
sonal prejudices."

quality services that have
made this community a
desirable place to live. It is
also my goal to remain in
