“Belem Morales is genuinely engaged with the community.” As an exemplary candidate who is sincerely interested in feedback and how she can best serve the residents of Royal Oak, Belem can be found knocking on doors to meet with neighbors and reach out to business owners and community leaders. What also impresses me about Belem is how knowledgeable she is about current local issues, and that tells me she is truly prepared to succeed. For those reasons I endorse Belem Morales for Royal Oak City Commissioner.”
