My name is Elizabeth Helminski, and I’m running for Grand Rapids Township Board Trustee. I’m a proud Michigander, born and raised. As an adult, my career in engineering and business took me around the country, but I moved back to West Michigan to support my mother as she fought cancer. It reopened my eyes to how special West Michigan is. My husband and I decided that we were ready to lay down our own roots and bought our forever home in Grand Rapids Township.
I was raised to believe it is my moral and civic duty to serve my community. As we settled into our new home, I quickly became inspired to run for local office, knowing it is the best way I can serve my neighbors. With my fierce loyalty, strong work ethic, and practical leadership experience, I will bring a valuable and fresh voice to the board. As an accessible and thoughtful leader, I will be a trusted resource to community members.
I hope to foster a sense of community pride, by increasing transparency and accountability of our local government. Through strategic and smart planning, I will work hard as the new voice to represent the people of Grand Rapids Township when elected as Trustee.
