DAVISON TWP. — Jim Slezak is running for a second term as supervisor of Davison Township in the upcoming Aug. 6 primary.

Slezak said he is a proud resident of Davison for over 50 years. Through public service, working and volunteering for the community in a variety of different ways, Slezak said his roots are strong in Davison.

“Whether it’s helping the schools or other parts of the community in need, you can count on Slezak,” he said.

He previously worked at the Photo Factory for over 20 years, worked and owned a restoration company, and works for Allstate Properties selling real estate.

Slezak served in the State House of Representatives in 2009-2010. As said he saw the need for improvement of the township, running and winning township supervisor’s seat in 2020.

A few of the many things that he said he has accomplished while in office are:

• Significantly cutting the townships property and vehicle liability insurance costs.

• Investing township money more efficiently to allow projects to get done faster.

• Adding pedestrian infrastructure to better connect our community.

• Keeping an open-door policy so all residents can either come into the office or speak at a public meeting.

“As your township supervisor, I will continue to support our Police and Fire Departments. I will continue to work to improve our infrastructure,” Slezak said. “I will continue to promote positive business growth in the township and support all local businesses. But the most important thing I will do is listen and work for the township residents.”

He faces Republican challengers Randall Steward and Derek Kiefer in the Aug. 6 primary. There are no Democrats running for the position.
