I know it might have been a tough decision for some, but I can't be more excited and proud that Mayor Londeau is now leading our city. He is both a mentor and friend, a champion of customer service and someone who loves Westland so much. I look forward to working with you for years to come!

Meet Melissa

Growing up, I wanted to be a lawyer or radio DJ. After falling in love and becoming successful in my career as a businesswoman and communications specialist, it was only natural that advocating for others would become such an important part of me. My compassion comes from having had a low-functioning brother with autism growing up—when other people looked at us weirdly when he acted out but were silent about it themselves; I’d stand up for him by being the first one to speak his truth aloud where they couldn't.

 

I was elected to Westland City Council in November 2021 and just completed my first year on Westland City Council. I have loved every moment of serving our city and hope to earn your vote AGAIN in the 2023 election.

My Commitment to the City of Westland

I am a lifelong resident and 15-year homeowner in Westland. Most of my family lives here and we are proud to call Westland our home. The most important thing to know about me is that I believe in family values. Values such as honesty, hard work, integrity, and strong community involvement are part of my daily life. As your city councilwoman, I will bring these values to every decision we make together for our families and neighbors across Westland.

 

I am bringing a fresh perspective to city council that is innovative and strategic. As someone committed to excellence in everything they do as well as transformation for our community's residents.

 

I believe that:
 

  • We need to continue to support Public Safety to keep our city safe, homes protected, and residents' wellness top of mind. We need to ensure appropriate staffing levels at each fire station in Westland for our Firefighters, Paramedics, and Public Services. We need to set them up for success and make sure they have the tools they need to do their job. 
     

  • We need a city that provides essential services to all members of our community and provides opportunities and jobs for young families that will invest in their homes and stay here for generations to come as well as improve the services and activities we offer to our senior population. 
     

  • We need to focus on Westland's economic development to attract new businesses and improve the current infrastructure. I would love to see a "Downtown Westland" that attracts people to our city to dine and shop. This would bring a unique experience that would allow for development and entertainment.
     

  • As a Mom to a busy and talented athlete, I support investment in updating our parks and recreational services. My son has played travel baseball for 8 years and we have been lucky to use the recently updated Baseball fields at Rotary and Jaycee Parks. I want to ensure that we continue to make investments in our parks that update the equipment and facilities at the parks so we can attract outside organizations to host tournaments, events, and activities in our city. Also, our young families deserve access to recreational activities right here in our city.   
     

  • I want to keep our taxes low and make sure that our tax dollars are being used in a fiscally responsible manner on the right programs and services. 
     

  • We have made lots of progress in our city on updating our roads as several projects are currently happening. I want to make sure that we are in a position financially to maintain the upkeep and upgrades of our roads and infrastructure.
