SUSAN HOOD
for
CLARKSTON CITY COUNCIL

I’m running because I want to make our city a great place to live, to raise a family, and to operate a business. I want to help Clarkston move forward but keep our unique character. I bring experience gained through a 20-year career in local government, a passion for service and a commitment to honesty and openness.
 

I’ve had the opportunity to support Clarkston as a member of the Planning and Zoning Board, co-chair of the Charter Review Committee, a member of the Housing and Infrastructure Advisory Committee, and co-founder of Save Clarkston’s Neighborhoods, a community advocacy group.
 

My priorities include supporting existing businesses and attracting new development in the town center, funding more police officers and new equipment; supporting homeownership for residents who rent and helping current homeowners keep their homes; funding quality-of-life improvements – more sidewalks, park improvements, bike trail extensions, and increasing oversight to ensure apartment owners comply with health and safety codes.

 

I’d like to hear from you.

Economic Development

The Downtown Development Authority (DDA) should be guided by our Comprehensive Development Plan and adopt a unified rather than a piecemeal approach.

Public Safety

I support community outreach efforts, ongoing police training, and mental health protocols.

Housing

I believe that homeownership is good for residents and good for the community. I will advocate for affordable housing and first-time homeowner assistance.

COVID-19

 I support continuing Clarkston's partnership with nonprofits to provide testing and vaccinations until COVID is no longer a health emergency. 

Ethics

As co-chair of the Charter Review Committee, I advocated for a focus on ethics in government and  the creation of an Ethics Review Committee. 

"Even before Susan and I became fellow P&Z board members, Susan has always had a conscientious and strong advocacy for the City of Clarkston's Planning and New Development; which is a commendable attribute for an effective City of Clarkston Council Member."
