November 1 •


n last week's Jewish News, we profiled several Jewish candidates who can
be found on the Oakland County ballot on Nov. 6. Below, we include three

Name: Steven Zimberg (R)
Hometown: Huntington Woods
Family: Father of two children
Synagogue: "I am a charitable kohen [priestly descendant]
and welcomed in most synagogues, just not one exclusively"

Candidate quote: "Citizens must play a greater role toward changing the direc-
tion of government. Funding a $16 trillion adjustable mortgage to purchase water
to fill a bucket full of holes, whether in our county or country, and irrespective of
political affiliation, is just wrong. As individuals, we get it, and together we can
find many other more meaningful, common-sense solutions to strengthen our
families and communities. My special trait is the ability to spot issues, apply cre-
ative thinking and garner voting support. These unique and special qualities will
be a valuable addition to our County Board of Commissioners."
Running against: Incumbent Helaine M. Zack (D)

Oakland County Commissioner 17th District
Lathrup Village, portions of Oak Park, Southfield, Southfield

Name: Milton Dzodin (R)
Hometown: Southfield
Family: Married, three children, one grandchild
Synagogue: Member of Shaarey Zedek Windsor since 1997

Candidate quote: "I have never been in office before and do not owe any
allegiance to any special interest groups. As the former owner of a small busi-
ness, I know how to work with all types of people and get the job done within
a budget. I can work with Democrats and Republicans. My goal is to reduce
spending and, therefore, reduce taxes. I have a lot of good ideas that will ben-
efit everyone. Bringing my business expertise and ideas, such as affordable
transportation, to everyone makes me an asset to Oakland County."
Running against: Incumbent Nancy L. Quarles (D)
