Trustee Janet Dunn is more qualified to be township supervisor than incumbent Supervisor Mark Grabow, according to the Macomb County Chamber of Commerce's candidate ratings released to the media July 27.
The county’s business organization gave the 17-year trustee a “well qualified” rating while giving Grabow a “qualified” rating.
Sheriff’s Deputy Charles Missig, another candidate for supervisor, received a “minimally qualified” rating.
“Our evaluation process is truly bi-partisan,” said Grace Shore, CEO of the county chamber. “This process is not about party affiliation. Our committee looks for individuals with the skill set and innovation to move our state and county forward.”
The county organization also dubbed clerk candidate Cathy Imbronone as "minimally qualified" for the position and incumbent Clerk Michael Koehs as "well qualified – preferred” — the highest qualification the chamber gives a candidate.
“Minimally qualified” is the second-lowest rating, Shore said. “No rating” is the lowest.
Incumbent Treasurer Karen Goodhue, with a “well qualified” rating, was ranked higher than her political opponent Thomas Christ’s “qualified” rating.
The chamber released its ratings for all Macomb County candidates after the candidates answered a questionnaire and were interviewed by a committee, shore said.
Shore said the candidate rating was based mainly on their “business friendliness.”
“That’s the chamber’s foundation,” she said. “There are some great candidates out there. The citizens have some good choices.”
