Need of Change

The current Eaton County Drain Commissioner has neglected the duties of the office. Many roads, intersections, residences, and agricultural land throughout the county flood after a hard rain.

While he claims to be fiscally responsible, consulting fees on maintenance work have skyrocketed since he took office. The drain office is in dire need of new leadership.


Eaton County's current Drain Commissioner appears to care less about the residents of Eaton County and more about serving the special interests who donate tens of thousands of dollars to his campaign. Find out more by following the link below.
