Six Running for Two At-Large seats on Rochester Hills City Council

Two at-large seats on Rochester Hills City Council are up for grabs this year, but only one of the incumbents is running for re-election.

Councilman Vern Pixley has chosen not to run for re-election, leaving fellow incumbent Michael Webber to compete with five newcomers for the two seats. Voters will get to choose two in the Aug. 2 primary, with the top four advancing to the November general election.

 All of the candidates were invited to answer a questionnaire from Rochester Media. Four responded: Webber, Howard Elandt, Dee Hilbert and Mark Tisdel. The other two candidates are Peter Adair and Kathleen Fitzgerald.

Webber is seeking his second four-year term on council. He currently works in insurance after nine years as a legislative aide in Lansing. Hilbert, a founder of a grassroots organization called Citizens Voice/ Rochester Hills, is a registered nurse at Beaumont Hospital.  Tisdel is an insurance executive. Elandt is a psychologist and residential developer.

Their responses are posted, unedited, in separate stories on this site. Click on each candidates name to see their responses.
