Robert Lewandowski, Port Huron Charter Township (St. Clair Co.) supervisor, has been elected to the Michigan Townships Association Board of Directors, serving as director of MTA 18 District, which encompasses Sanilac and St. Clair Counties. Lewandowski, who was elected to the position by his township peers at the Association’s Annual Conference in April, fills the role following long-time Grant Township (St. Clair Co.) Supervisor Bill Deater’s election as 2022 MTA president.
A life-long Port Huron Charter Township resident, Lewandowski has served his hometown for nearly 25 years. After serving as township constable for a decade, he was first elected supervisor in 2008. He has served on the township downtown development authority board since 1999, including as board secretary. He has also been vice chair and chair of the St. Clair County Township Supervisors Association, as well as vice president and president of the Michigan Association of Township Supervisors.
In addition, he is chair of the St. Clair County Road and Bridge Advisory Commission. Lewandowski has also been on the Flagship Credit Union Board of Directors since 2017, served the St. Clair County Farm Museum since 2006, and been a member of the South Park Lions Club since 2010.
Lewandowski says assisting residents has been an immensely rewarding part of his public service, and he looks forward to broadening his service with his new role on the MTA Board.
“I have enjoyed involvement in local government, and now would like to share what I have learned to mentor others through my position on the MTA Board,” he said.
