I’m Dr. Melanie Hartman, and I’m running to represent District 15 on the Oakland County Commission.
Now more than ever, we need leaders who care about us, know our communities, and will put our residents’ best interests first, period. I want to serve this community because it’s my home—it’s where I raised my children, developed lifelong friendships, and became inspired to get involved in local government. As a medical professional, a wife, a parent, and long-time volunteer in our schools and greater community, I have the experience, integrity, and heart we need to make the right decisions for our district.
Home is the place that grounds us, provides stability and strength, and inspires hope during difficult times. It gives us neighbors and friends who feel—and act—like family. Now, it’s my turn to give back to my home. I want to ensure our residents’ voices are heard and our priorities are taken seriously. Most importantly, I want to help us rebuild, reinvent ourselves, and fight through uncertainty toward an amazing future.
