Strengthening the Ypsilanti community extends beyond city borders and includes regional businesses and institutions.

Ypsilanti is a strong community with a unique identity. We don’t, however, benefit from a narrow view of Ypsilanti. The health and strength of our city is linked with the future and success of Eastern Michigan University, local businesses, surrounding communities, and county government.  Amanda has more than a decade of experience building relationships with local and regional partners. Drawing on her leadership experience, Amanda will bring together resources from across southeast Michigan to highlight the untapped possibilities Ypsilanti holds. She is a constant champion of our city’s potential and will work tirelessly to change the misconceptions some have of our community. As mayor, Amanda will make sure that our neighbors and regional partners realize what our city has to offer and the opportunities Ypsilanti presents.
