Michigan Libertarian Andy LeCureaux was elected to his tenth consecutive term on the Hazel Park City Council on November 5. He has been on the council since 2001. Terms on the city council are for two years.
Mr. LeCureaux finished first in a 3-way race, with the top two finishers elected. He received 778 votes for 39% overall.
“What to me was notable was the wide support across the entire city, from so many people I had never met before. That was heartwarming,” LeCureaux said in an interview with C and G News. “It just felt amazing to see people I didn’t know coming to help support me.”
LeCureaux pointed out that both he and McFall were among the many volunteers on the recent playscape project at Scout-McPherson Park, which he feels helped introduce them to more residents.
The playscape was funded by a grant from the Sutar-Sutaruk-Meyer Foundation, and was built with sweat equity from residents and volunteers from the city, schools, churches and local businesses.
“Many people came out to that build and met neighbors they’d never met before, working side by side with them, building something that they’re all unified around,” LeCureaux said. “I think (the exposure) carried over into this campaign. People got to know (McFall and I) through that.”
LeCureaux, 58, is the owner of Andrew’s Appliance Installation and has resided in Hazel Park since 1994.
