To the editor:
My name is Dan Holcomb (R) and I’m honored to be representing my community by running for Houghton County Commissioner for District 3 (Adams Township and City of Hancock).
I was born and raised from Northeast Alabama and made my way up here in 2007 to attend Michigan Tech and graduated in the fall of 2010 achieving my degree in industrial technology. Earning my degree from Michigan Tech is the highlight of my life and it gave me the necessary tools to kickstart my engineering career in commercial, medical, defense, and aerospace industries.
My engineering experiences over the past nine years have exposed me to understanding complex manufacturing fabrication skills to ensure that manufactured products either meet or exceed its performance requirements. This also includes procuring government solicitations and project managing defense contracts that has brought in great opportunities to the Upper Peninsula.
My passion is to maintain our constitutional rights focusing on our first and second amendment issues that are plaguing our country as we speak. I strongly believe that serving in local government is just or more important as state or federal elected positions. I also understand that civic duties should not be self-serving, but should be reflective in a selfless manor serving the community rather than a political agenda.
I plan on bringing the principles that I have learned over the years that has prepared me to take on this new challenge to listen and engage constructive discussions with my community to ensure that adequate funding and sensible resolutions will benefit our community in the long term.
If elected to this position I will use the tools given to represent the will of my community ranging from fixing pot holes to cleaning up Champion No. 6 mineshaft in Painesdale.
I encourage you to reach out to me with any questions or ideas you may have by phone at 906-370-3115 or by email at VoteWDH@gmail.com.
