About Tom Lenard
Tom Lenard was elected Treasurer after serving four years as a Trustee. Once sworn-in as Treasurer, Tom took immediate action to educate residents on safe alternatives to pay tax and utility bills during the COVID-19 pandemic. His “Pay Safe, Stay Safe” campaign has already proven popular with residents, avoiding COVID-19 exposure and long wait times. During his time as a Trustee, he advocated for trail and infrastructure improvements while supporting a strong ethics policy for elected officials and employees.

An outdoor enthusiast, Matt is also park planner for the Michigan Department of Natural Resources Parks and Recreation Division. After moving to Delhi Township, Matt served on the Planning Commission before running for the Board. Matt’s goals on the Board include making it easier for residents to participate in local government, supporting the Holt Public Schools, improving trails and sidewalks and reducing the Township’s carbon footprint.

TyJuan, a Chicago native and the Board’s first African American Trustee, set his sights on public service to provide a fresh perspective to the Township Board.
