Basham endorses Brandana for State Representative
Jill Brandana, Democratic candidate for the Michigan House of Representatives from the 22nd District, continues to pick up endorsements, and one of the latest is from Democratic State Sen. Ray Basham. He represent the 8th Senate District that coves almost all of the Downriver area.
I am writing to offer my strong recommendation of the Honorable Jill Brandana in her primary election bid this August as your State Representative for the 22nd District. She has served her community well in her position on the Taylor City Council and other boards and commissions.
Jill earned both her Bachelor's degree and her Master's degree in Public Administration (M.P.A.) from the University of Michigan. Jill serves the people of Taylor on the City Council, where she has worked diligently to ensure that public safety and fiscal responsibility are priorities on the Council in their oversight of city business. She has also worked steadfastly to protect our land, air, water and quality of life by helping to defeat the Environmental Disposal Systems attempts to place a hazardous waste well in our community. She is a dedicated and effective public servant, currently serving as Chairwoman Pro-Tem on the Taylor City Council, and is involved in every level of community service. Besides her public duties on the council, Jill also works as an Administrative/Legal Assistant in a successful law firm, where she has worked for over 26 years. Her education and administrative experience are excellent preparation to represent the 22nd House District.
I have known Jill personally for several years and in that time I have come to have only the highest regard for her personally and professionally. She shows great integrity and compassion in fulfilling her duties as an elected official and it is with great enthusiasm that I recommend her for election to the State House of Representatives.
I encourage you to vote for Councilwoman Jill Brandana in the Primary on August 5.
