Alex Hansen, a South Lyon City resident, is running for one of three open seats on the South Lyon City Council.
Hansen filed paperwork and signatures with the county clerk on June 3, 2021 in preparation for the November 2021 election.
“Our city has reached a point where the City Council has to make some tough decisions to tackle the deteriorating infrastructure.” Hansen stated. “Going forward, we need to build upon the projects already started and show the citizens of South Lyon results that will impact our lives and our property values.”
As a banker with over 14 years of experience, Hansen understands the importance of a balanced budget and fiscal responsibility. He recognizes that success can only be achieved when all stakeholders are heard and their concerns are addressed in a manner that generates success for everyone, not just those with the most assets.
Hansen’s extensive experience in the banking industry has helped him to understand ways in which the City can be fiscally responsible while still providing the necessary services to our residents.
“For the past decade, we have seen our city roads decay. I will work tirelessly with my fellow City Council members to continue improving our infrastructure, our city cross walks, and other city services. We need elected officials who are willing to work together to improve our city.”
Hansen is a branch manger for a not-for-profit Michigan based Credit Union. His duties are divided between providing his members with exceptional financial service and managing branch staff. In November 2020, Hansen was appointed to the South Lyon City Zoning Board of Appeals where he served until filing to run for City Council. He previously served on the Howell Township Zoning Board of Appeals for
nearly three years before moving to South Lyon.
