Kay Nickols will challenge the newly-appointed Diane Hasse for the Woodhull Township Supervisor seat in the upcoming November election. Nickols, who held the position previously, has been a resident of the township for 31 years and feels that “the time has come again to be active in township government challenges and issues.”
In addition to having experience as Woodhull Township Supervisor, Nickols has also served on the Shiawassee County Board of Commissioners, with 10 years of experience on the county’s Board of Health and eight years on the Board of Review. She also spent six years as a teacher with the Laingsburg Community Schools and 22 years as an administrator.
Nickols vows to serve the township by improving communication between the board and the residents, representing all residents at county and state workshops to keep abreast of evolving issues affecting the township, by being an active liaison between township residents and county departments, and by being fiscally responsible.
She has a BA and MA from Michigan State University, is an author and lecturer, and a designer of fiber arts. She has recently retired from the lecturing circuit to devote her time to serving the township. Nickols feels very strongly that it is time to promote and acquire positive results for all township residents, and as a world traveler, she has observed many cultures in which residents do not have a say in their local governments.
“We are so fortunate to be able to have a voice in local government,” Nickols said in a press release. “I encourage all to register and vote. And for anyone not able to make it to the polls in November, please contact the township clerk’s office to be sent an
absentee ballot.”
