Peter Spadafore Announces Campaign for Re-Election
Current Council President eager to continue his work to improve life in the Capital City
LANSING – Today, Peter Spadafore filed for re-election for his at-large seat on the Lansing City Council.
“It’s been an extremely challenging year for all of us, and one of those challenges has been helping the city of Lansing navigate overlapping crises caused by the coronavirus pandemic. It hasn’t been easy, but I’m proud of the work we’ve done to support small business grants and emergency housing assistance, as well as our success in making our meetings accessible virtually, so that this critical work can remain transparent to the public,” said Council President Spadafore. “Transparency and accountability are crucial, and a big priority for me.”
A fourth generation Lansing resident, Spadafore served three terms as President on the Lansing School Board before being elected to City Council in 2017, with broad support from diverse constituencies across the city. During his tenure, the Council has prioritized investments in major road repairs and sewer system upgrades to improve water quality. In addition to funding for small businesses and the city’s first sustainability manager, the Council has pushed for utility and housing relief for families and residents, to make life in Lansing more affordable.
“At this critical moment, I see so much opportunity to continue investing in our infrastructure and improve quality of life in our city,” said the Council President. “I’m excited to get out there to campaign and hear from Lansing residents about their priorities and goals for us. There’s so much more to do, and I’m eager to continue the work.”
Peter is proud to live in Lansing with his husband, Daniel, who he married in the Capital City in 2016, and their rescue Lab, Sadie.
