A Fresh Outlook for Saline!

My name is Dawn. I graduated from Saline High School in 1988. (Save the math, I’ll be 50 this year!) After living in both Jackson and Ann Arbor, I returned to Saline with my family almost 5 years ago. Although it was thought to be a temporary move while we grieved the loss of our son, the community has pulled me in! I plan to stay and try to protect what is working and work with others in the community to fix what might not be working. I am running for myself, not against anyone else. I believe we all have Saline’s best interests at heart but it is time for a fresh set of eyes and a fresh outlook for Saline’s positive paths forward. Join me!

I am pleased to announce that I have the endorsement of the Democratic Party for the 2020 election. Additionally, I would like to highlight my strong track record of working across the aisle with the Michigan State Legislature on the bills mentioned above. I have worked diligently to improve the lives of different groups of people and will continue to do so with an open mind and heart.
