Democratic Nominee for Hamburg Clerk Offers Stability, Civility

A long-time Hamburg Township resident with a background in accounting and business is the Democratic nominee for the Hamburg Township clerk’s position in the February 23, 2010, special election.

Annette Koeble of Whitmore Lake was nominated by the Hamburg Township Committee of the Livingston County Democratic Party. She filed her papers with the Livingston County Clerk’s office last week.

"I have been attending Hamburg Township board of trustee meetings for more than two years and have familiarized myself with the issues facing our township. I am certain that I can bring professionalism, competency, common sense, and civility to the office. As clerk, I will be focused on serving customers – our residents – and on moving our township forward," Koeble said.

Koeble was one of the three finalists for the interim clerk position interviewed by the Hamburg Township board of trustees on Friday.

Koeble served as a member of the Hamburg Township 2009 Focus group which put together the police and recreation millage proposals approved by voters in November.

"Throughout my career, I have tried to focus on being a member of a team. I consider myself to be a good listener, someone who is able to trouble shoot problems, and most importantly, to get the job done in a timely manner. I possess excellent organizational skills and I know how to prioritize and manage multiple tasks," she said.

Koeble’s work record shows the stability she would bring to the position of clerk. She has been office administrator with Turner Electric Service Inc. of Dexter since 1985, where she has been responsible for accounting, payroll, personnel files, billing, liaison with banks and bonding companies, insurance matters, and financial analysis.

From 1976 to 1985, Koeble held positions as office manager, estimator, and billing clerk for companies in the construction field. She also taught secondary school in the Jackson area from 1972-1974.

Koeble has a bachelor of science degree from Eastern Michigan University. She has been married to her husband, Bob Koeble, for 24 years and has lived in Hamburg Township since 1982.

She has served as treasurer of the Livingston County Democratic Party since 2007.
