After serving the residents of Rochester Hills for the past 4 years, City Council Member, Susan Bowyer, has announced she will run to retain her seat in this year’s November election.

During her time on council, Bowyer has been instrumental in preserving more than 14 acres of green space for residents to enjoy, helping to raise funds and further develop the Paint Creek Trail, and has been a strong supporter of the Auburn Road Corridor restorations.

“Having lived in the Auburn Road area in the 80s, I’m thrilled to see life brought back to that area of our city,” said Bowyer. “Much of that area still looks the same as it did years ago-and our residents are excited to see the change and improvement coming.”

A resident of Rochester Hills for more than 20 years, she believes in supporting youth and the elderly, protecting our parks and open spaces as these are paramount to creating a solid foundation for our city.

Bowyer sits on the Rochester Hills Green Space Committee, Paint Creek Trailways Commission, Sister Cities Committee to Rochester, and the Water & Sewer Technical Review Committee. She also serves on the Board of the Community Foundation of Greater Rochester and is  currently serving as the Chair of the Graduate Study Advisory Council for Oakland University.

Bowyer is employed as a Senior Scientist at Henry Ford Hospital where she performs brain imaging on patients prior to brain surgery.  She is a graduate of University of Michigan–Flint and a graduate of Oakland University. Bowyer is also an adjunct assistant professor teaching Physics at Oakland University, as well as Wayne State University Medical School where she is also an assistant professor in the Department of Neurology.

Prior to her time on City Council, Bowyer was president of Cumberland Hills Subdivision, the largest in Rochester Hills. Committed to preserving Rochester Hills’ natural beauty, Bowyer formed a ballot committee with several other Home Owners Association presidents to amend the city’s charter providing more protection for parks and open spaces, which passed in 2011.

Bowyer has been an integral party of the community since 2000 when she volunteered as coach for the Rochester Youth Soccer League. She also participated in PTAs for Hamlin Elementary, Reuther Middle, and Rochester High Schools and was parent manager for the men’s soccer team at Rochester High.

In her scientific field Bowyer was elected to serve on several boards as treasurer for the International Society for the Advancement of Clinical MEG and American Clinical MEG Society. Bowyer successfully created fiscal responsibility and growth in membership for both societies.

“Rochester Hills continues to be one of the safest and most vibrant communities in the country,” said Bowyer. “It’s been my honor to serve on City Council for the past several years and I look forward to continuing this work, representing the residents of District 3, for another 4 years.”
