I am Fonda Brewer, and I am running for Delta Township Trustee.
I currently serve on the Board via an appointment in 2018. Additionally, I was elected and served on the Waverly Community School District for a 4-year term in 2007.
I have a passion for serving and grew up in a Union household where volunteering in my community was an every day practice.
Supporting our labor community has been key in my life as I retired from MESSA, an affiliate of one of Michigan’s largest public school unions, MEA. Additionally, I have a host of family members who have retired from or are working in a Union environment.
I absolutely love serving as a Trustee because it allows me to be a voice for the voiceless, serve the needs of our senior members, and ensure we have vibrant programs for all ages to maintain an active options in our township.
As a woman of color, I hope my perspective brings a positive and helpful set of lenses on policies and decisions facing the board that supports our diverse community. I am a people person and believe it is my responsibility to put people over politics.
I attend many meetings and events in my township and the region to ensure I am available to hear directly from community members on what matters most from their township representative…be it good or bad feedback. I feel all feedback is useful, when it is used. I always use feedback to do my best to resolve any constituent issues.
I’m also known as being a “straight shooter,” or as in the words of my mother, “I like to tell it like it is!” Being fake and over-promising and under-delivering doesn’t work for me. People are wise enough to see it a mile away.
I know many candidates already have a robust campaign in play; however, I have decided to focus my attention on advocating for the homeless with local and state officials to ensure they are not left behind during this horrific COVID-19 outbreak.
Again, my priority is being a voice to the voiceless by doing the work not just talking about what needs to be done. I’m not great at being a politician, and I honestly hope I’ll never be great at it. I want to simply be a person who believes in getting the work done to help our community go from great to greater.
I also serve on the following boards that serve our community and the wonderful people living there:
- Foster Care Board
- Foster Care Advisory Board
- Communities In Schools of Michigan
Last year I was honored to also be appointed by Governor Whitmer to the Board of Dentistry for a four-year term.
