Jenny McCardell won November 7 election for the Rochester Hills City Council, At-Large, over incumbent Kevin Brown. When the votes were tallied, 39 votes made the difference in a close election for the Rochester Hills City Council seat.

“The people of Rochester Hills came out last night and made their voices heard and I can’t wait to get to work for all of our residents,” said Councilwoman-Elect Jenny McCardell. “Rochester Hills is a wonderful community, with diversity and character and I’m going to work hard to ensure that all of our voices are heard and that they matter.”

McCardell ran a grassroots-campaign, focused on three key issues: making sure the City has the public safety resources it needs, that critical public infrastructure needs and concerns are addressed, and most important of all that all of this is done in a transparent manner that involved the community.

In addition to these goals, McCardell is planning on working closely with the Mayor and Council to ensure that Rochester Hills continues to grow as a welcoming community to all residents.

“Mayor Barnett took a strong stand with the ‘Mayors’ Compact’ and I look forward to working with him, and Council to find ways to implement these important social changes into our city and our culture,” said McCardell. “Our community grows stronger not only through economic and business growth, but by welcoming and accepting everyone who chooses to make a home here.”

The Mayors’ Compact is a joint effort between the Anti-Defamation League and The United States Conference of Mayors to fight extremism and bigotry and to promote the fundamental principles of justice and equality that define America.

McCardell will be sworn in on November 16, 2017 and begin her four-year term on the Rochester Hills City Council at the first meeting of the council, November 20, 2017. “As I was throughout my campaign, I will be available and accessible to our residents, to ensure that their voice is being heard in all city matters,” said McCardell.
