Former Lansing School District Board President Peter Spadafore announced today he has received multiple endorsements for his campaign to become an at-large member of the Lansing City Council.
“It’s an honor to receive endorsements from current and former leaders in Lansing that share in my goal of creating a brighter future for our city,” Spadafore said. “Only through working together will we pave the way for Lansing’s success and make it a city where people want to live, work, and raise their families.”
Spadafore’s endorsements today include:
* Michigan House Minority Leader Sam Singh
* State Representative Tom Cochran
* Former State Representative Joan Bauer
* Ingham County Clerk Barb Byrum
* Delta Township Supervisor Ken Fletcher
* Lansing School Board Members Bryan Beverly, Gabrielle Johnson Lawrence, Missy Lilje, and Shirley Rodgers.
Spadafore, a longtime resident of the Lansing region, was previously elected President of the Lansing School Board and currently serves as Secretary. He works as Associate Executive Director for Government Relations for the Michigan Association of School Administrators. Peter is a graduate of James Madison College at Michigan State University where he studied Social Relations and Policy with an emphasis on education policy.
“I’m running to return Lansing’s priorities back where they belong – the people,” Spadafore said. “Lansing families deserve safe and reliable roads, great public schools, and more good-paying jobs. It’s great to know I have the endorsement of people who feel the same and know I can get the job done.”
