GT Dems provide help in winning campaign

February 26, 2017


In the years that I have been involved with the Grand Traverse County Democratic Party, we have searched for democratic candidates to run for office.  It occurred to me one day that I could be a candidate in Peninsula Township where I live. I have been involved with the Zoning Appeals Board and participated in the planning for the expansion of Bowers Harbor Park. I found these endeavors to be interesting and rewarding. So having thought it over, I signed up to run for the Park Commission.

The Grand Traverse Dems offered a campaign training event that I took advantage of, using the manual provided to launch my campaign. Grand Traverse Dems, Harold Lasser, and Deni Scrudato, helped me assemble excellent campaign material. I believe that information, and my personal canvassing of Peninsula Township residents, soliciting their feedback and recommendations for improvements, was effective in my winning campaign for a seat on the Park Commission.

Since I have joined the Park Commission I have learned many new aspects of the peninsula and I have met many residents that I would not have become acquainted with if  I had not run for office. I live in a predominantly Republican township, but I am glad I decided to run for office in what turned out to be a successful campaign. I appreciate the help the GT Dems provided me in winning the election.

John Snow, Commissioner
Peninsula Township Park Commission
