I am supporting Beth Friend for East Bay Township Trustee and urge all East Bay Township residents to do the same. Beth has a proven record of exemplary public service. She is trustworthy, diligent, conscientious, and has the best interests of East Bay residents at heart. Beth is knowledgeable about issues concerning the Township and will help to make our community an even better place to live, work and play.

Please vote for Beth Friend on Aug. 7.

Deb Lannen

Traverse City

Has judicial experience

All of the Probate Judge candidates have legal and life experience.

Kirsten Keilitz is the only candidate with judicial experience.

Kirsten has made difficult decisions regarding placement of abused children, juvenile issues, personal protective orders, custody, support, parenting time, contempt of court, and many others. And she has done so in an informed, sensitive, considerate, and respectful manner.

The hard part of being a judge is making the difficult decisions in a timely manner and Kirsten has been making these decisions for three years.

Experience counts and Kirsten has it.

Please join me and vote for Kirsten Keilitz.

A key supporter

Undoubtedly, we are all familiar with the Pure Michigan campaign, which has been hugely successful in promoting, both domestically and abroad, the amazing state that we live in. With nearly a 3-1 return on the investment, Pure Michigan is good for everyone.

We are very lucky to have a representative in Lansing who understands the benefits of Pure Michigan for our area. Rep. Wayne Schmidt has been a key supporter of this program and, therefore, of the many job providers in Grand Traverse County.

Please join me in supporting Wayne Schmidt on Aug. 7th.
