Independent Editor,
The 85th District has a long history of strong leadership in Lansing. It is my hope that this great tradition will continue with the nomination of Hartmann Aue as the Republican candidate on Aug. 2. I have known Hart for nearly thirty years, and I can genuinely say that he is committed to the task of making his community stronger. In the two years that Hart has served as Shiawassee County Commissioner, he has accomplished more than what many elected officials have been able to do in their entire career.
What impresses me most about Hart’s work is that he is not doing it alone. He is a unifier. Hart has managed to establish collaborative efforts on numerous projects. Most recently was the announcement of the new Shiawassee County Medical Care Facility. With Hart’s signature authorizing the purchase of the land, the leadership teams of Pleasant View and Memorial Healthcare, along with the board of Commissioners, one of the biggest developments in county history became a reality without much toiling or debate. This is the type of leadership we need in Lansing. We need someone like Hart to bring people together through compromise and a mutual understanding.
I recall when Hart was considering running for public service and discussing the needed changes to improve Shiawassee County. It has been impressive to watch those ideas become reality over the last two years with Hart serving as Chairman. Those achievements include the reestablishment of the County Sheriff’s road patrol, partnering with the local RESD to increase IT services while cutting costs, the board cutting their own health benefits to save the taxpayers’ money, and the recently announced surplus.
We need someone who has been there AND done it. Too many people have merely been there. Send Hartmann Aue to Lansing by voting for him on
Aug. 2 and then again on Nov. 8.

John Adams, Owosso
