and safe, secure com-
munities are the two
most important pursuits of
the Democratic incumbent
county commissioner from
Oakland County's District
"Oakland County needs to
maintain its high level of
services without raising taxes
during a challenging and unpre-
dictable economic climate. We need to
ensure that county government spends
money wisely and not wastefully," says
Helaine M. Zack, the county commis-
sion Democratic caucus chair.
District 22 includes Huntington
Woods, Oak Park, Pleasant Ridge,
Royal Oak Township and the south-
east corner of Southfield. Zack's
Republican opponent, Jideofor N.
Dallah of Oak Park, did not respond
to a Jewish News questionnaire.
"I want to ensure that there is a fair
allocation of county resources given to
the older communities of south
Oakland County," said Zack, 51, a
district resident for 24 years. "Our pri-
orities in this district, including fixing
our aging infrastructure, contrast with
those of north and west Oakland
County, including developing new
roads or sewers."
On keeping district communities
safe and strong, she said: "We need to
have adequate resources to maintain
high-quality public safety depart-
ments. Since 9-11, the county has
invested a lot of time and money in
emergency response and homeland
security efforts, including purchasing
four hazardous materials vehicles. We
also need greater emphasis placed on
roads and traffic signals to keep the
22nd District safe."
First elected in 2002, Zack said she
strives to be accessible to constituents.

As a Democratic leader,
Zack said, "I have been
able to unify our caucus
and build alliances with
commissioners from the
other political party."
Zack serves on the commission's
finance, public services and oversight
committees and the new jail over-
crowding task force. She said she takes
on politically risky battles, such as
protesting a commissioner's appoint-.
ment to a county job, which would
have forced a special election. "I also
opposed a controversial $48,000 board
of commissioners lobbyist contract,"
Zack and her husband, Andrew,
have three adult children. The family
is affiliated with Congregation Beth
Shalom in Oak Park.
Zack works as a social worker in
employee assistance programs. She
earned a B.A. and an MSW at the
University of Michigan.
She has been active with Jewish
Family Service and the Jewish
Federation of Metropolitan Detroit
Women's Division. She's on the board
of the Oakland County Human
Services Coordinating Council,
Oakland County Substance Abuse
Advisory Council and Citizens
Advisory Council/Oakland County
Community and Home Improvement.
She's an alternate board member to
SEMCOG and the Area Agency on
Aging and a member of the Oakland
County Jail Diversion Advisory Team.
