DEARBORN HEIGHTS, MI – State Representative Bob Constan has announced the most recent endorsements of his candidacy for the new 8th District seat on the Wayne County Commission.
“Our next Wayne County Commissioner must bring a new approach to the office. The residents of the new 8th District must be represented vigorously and effectively,” Constan said. “I deeply appreciate all of the individuals and groups that are supporting my effort to work at the county level to serve my neighbors in Dearborn Heights, Redford and southeastern Livonia.”
Local officials supporting Constan include: Dearborn Heights City Councilman Ned Apigian; Redford Twp. Treasurer Lily Cavanaugh; former Chair Wayne County Road Commission Sir Michael Berry; Livonia City Councilman James McCann; District Seven School Board President Phil Shannon; and Crestwood School Board President Donna Ancinec. Groups supporting Constan for Wayne County Commission are: Wayne Metro AFL CIO; AFSCME Council 25; 14th District Democrats; and the Dearborn Heights Democratic Club.
Elected officials on the state level who support Bob Constan for Wayne County Commission include: Senate Democratic Floor Leader Tupac Hunter; State Senator Morris Hood; State Representative George T. Darany; State Representative Diane Slavens; State Representative Phil Cavanagh, and State Representative Paul Clemente.
“In the past few years Wayne County has not spent wisely on the government services county residents need,” Constan said. “The most important job of the County Commission is to enact the county budget and oversee contracts and spending. With my experience overseeing the state budget and background in law and ethics, I will ensure our tax dollars go for the county services our residents need – road maintenance, transportation, and senior services – and not overly generous compensation and severance packages.”
Constan, serving his third and final term as State Representative, is a former member of the Dearborn Heights City Council. He takes great pride in his commitment to each office he has held.
One of the few State Representatives in Lansing to boast a 100 percent perfect attendance and 100 percent voting record, Constan plans to bring that same dedication to the role of Wayne County Commissioner for the new 8th District. The district includes all of Dearborn Heights and Redford Township and a southeast section of Livonia, south of Five Mile Rd. and east of Middlebelt.
Constan chaired the Government Operations Committee during the last legislative session and is the current Minority Chair of the House Tax Policy Committee in Lansing, among other committee assignments.
A graduate of Annapolis High School, Constan holds a B.A. from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and a Juris Doctorate Degree from the University of Detroit-Mercy School of Law. He has been licensed to practice law in Michigan for 25 years.
Constan and his wife of 23 years, Kim, have three children. He has served as an usher at his church for over a decade. An active volunteer in his community, Constan is Vice President of the Dearborn Heights Goodfellows, Distinguished Past President of the Dearborn Heights Kiwanis Club, Past President of the Dearborn Area Bar Association and a Commissioner on the Dearborn Heights Watershed Steward’s Commission.
