Cambensy’s top priority to bring voice of 109th people to Lansing.
MARQUETTE — While in Lansing today, Sara Cambensy observed that, “Today is a bittersweet day as I file my official paperwork for the 109th House seat special election. There is no doubt that our district is still healing from the unexpected passing of Representative John Kivela, and I am certain that it will still take some time to come to terms with losing a leader in the district.” She went on to say, “’Because of the many important issues that Rep. Kivela was working on that need to be finished, and because there is much more work to be started for our district, I am formally filing to be on the ballot in the upcoming special election for the 109th district seat.”
“My top priority is bringing the voice of the people of the 109th district to Lansing, where too many special interests have the attention of legislators at the expense of local needs. Small businesses, local governments and citizens in the district are not getting a fair return on taxes paid. Quality of life is negatively affected by tax giveaways, denying local governments and schools of the money they need to provide basic services to their communities,” Cambensy said.
Ms. Cambensy is currently employed as the Director of Adult and Community Education and Kaufman Auditorium, for Marquette Area Public Schools. She was appointed to the Marquette City Planning Commission in 2008, elected to the Marquette Charter Commission in 2011 and has served as an elected Marquette City Commission since 2012. Sara earned her Bachelors of Science degree in Education from NMU in 2002 and her Masters of Public Administration degree from Northern Michigan University in the fall of 2011. She is a lifelong resident of Marquette.
