Louise is a long time resident of Livingston County. She is a 1977 graduate of Brighton High School and an avid cyclist enjoying local road riding in both Island Lake State Park and Kensington Metropark. Both she and her husband have participated in the Make A Wish three day three hundred mile ride for nine years.
Having grown up in Brighton, Louise has witnessed the development and growth of Livingston County over the years. With this growth comes the need for infrastructure that will support the safety of it’s residents.
