Dani Walsh

While the filing deadline for the August primary isn’t until the end of April, the beginnings of a race is taking shape for supervisor in Bloomfield Township, which could well be the precursor to the November election. Incumbent supervisor Dani Walsh (D), completing her first four-year term after serving as a trustee, enjoys running the show and is seeking another go at the helm. According to end-of year annual finance reports for her campaign, she raised $4,469 the last quarter of 2023, a minimal amount, despite word that she had a couple of fundraisers, and has $4,200 cash on hand. Republican Mike McCready, who is a former three-term state House representative and former mayor and commissioner of Bloomfield Hills (but has been living in Bloomfield Township), filed a statement of organization to run for Bloomfield Township Supervisor, but has not yet raised any money. While initially several local Republicans were concerned about when – or if – he would get juiced up for another campaign after losing a state Senate race in 2018, he has resigned his job as economic development director for the city of Novi, is setting up fundraisers and collecting signatures to get on the ballot, watching board meetings and meeting with other party members. Word is that township gadfly Mark Antakli, a Republican who lost to former treasurer Brian Kepes in 2020, has taken out both supervisor and trustee application forms, hedging his bets.
