Rochester Hills City Council Vice President Announces Re-Election Campaign
Stephanie Morita recently announced she will seek re-election to the Rochester Hills City Council, serving District 1. Morita was originally elected to Rochester Hills City Council in 2013, and currently serves as Vice President.
Morita, first moved to Rochester Hills in 2000, and is committed to continuing her work for the residents of Rochester Hills.
“I believe that public service is a moral responsibility and have been privileged to work for the residents in District 1 for the past 4 years,” said Morita. “My family and I love this City, and I want to retain and improve our quality of life. The professionalism of our City and its Council are paramount to me, and if granted the honor to be re-elected, I will continue to carry our values, as Rochester Hills residents, forward.”
While on City Council, Morita consistently strived toward issue resolution on the behalf of individual residents. She has also worked on larger issues such as Adams Road safety improvements, developing River Bend Park, and maintaining the financial stability of the Older Persons’ Commission (OPC).
“Councilwoman Morita has represented her district and the residents of Rochester Hills with distinction and integrity,” said Rochester Hills Mayor, Bryan Barnett. “She is a leader on the Council and a strong voice for transparency. She has earned the trust and respect of residents in District 1 and I urge voters to allow her to keep working for them with another term on City Council.”
Morita’s professional background as a municipal attorney specializing in property tax matters, uniquely qualifies her for City Council. Morita is active in the Rochester Hills community and has served in several capacities, including positions on the City of Rochester Hills Brownfield Redevelopment Authority, Avondale Youth Assistance Board of Directors, Paint Creek Trailway Commission, City of Rochester Hills Planning Commission, Older Persons’ Commission Board of Directors and Finance Committee, Rochester Hills Museum Foundation Board, Rochester Auburn Hills Community Coalition, Michigan Municipal League Finance Committee, and River Valley Homeowners Association Board Member and Two-Term President.
In addition, she is a proud hockey mom, little league baseball fan, wife to her husband Todd, and has two small obnoxious, but cute, dogs.
Morita plans an official campaign kick-off on March 29 at Avery’s Tavern.
