Thomas Wolverton, a 20-year Farmington Hills resident, says he loves his community and "wants to give back."
The attorney and retired teacher is one of nine candidates for three city council seats in the Nov. 5 election. In a written statement provided to Farmington-Farmington Hills Patch, Wolverton said he has "many skills that will be beneficial to being a Farmington Hills city council person."
His issues of concern include a proposal to cap property taxes for residents who have lived in the community for at least 20 years, so they pay no more than they paid when they retired. Wolverton believes this will encourage current residents to stay in the community.
"I will do a cost-benefit analysis for every proposal before the council," Wolverton wrote, adding he would make all decisions on a "non-partisan basis".
