Ashley lives with her husband and two young daughters in the Eastwood neighborhood and has been a Kalamazoo resident for over a decade now. As a new trustee, she looks forward to listening to our residents and working with them to continue building a community that is healthy and thriving for all who live here.
Her values lie with our environment; community activism; a place that is 'for the people by the people'; transparency; equity, and inclusion. She looks forward to engaging small businesses that are committed to building us up and promoting people over profits. I am committed to thinking creatively about how to engage and collaborate with our citizens, surrounding communities, and local organizations to achieve our goals.
Ashley holds an undergraduate degree in Political Science and is pursuing a graduate degree in public administration from Western Michigan University. Her past volunteer activities include Urban Alliance, Building Blocks, Kalamazoo Nonviolent Opponents of War, Engaging Local Government Leaders, and groups that work with the Kalamazoo Climate Crisis Coalition. I have also volunteered in several election cycles to get out the vote.
Steve graduated from K College (history), WMU (master’s in public administration), and the Michigan Township Associations’ Township Governance Academy. His professional work experience includes serving in Kalamazoo County’s planning and health departments and as a property coordinator for Bronson.
Serving as a trustee since 2012, Steve Leuty’s first involvement with Kalamazoo Township began more than three decades ago when he helped develop the township’s pioneer curbside recycling program and non-motorized improvements, including sidewalks and safe routes to school. His passion for creating a safe and walkable community remains strong as he looks for ways to move forward with our complete streets initiative. In addition to his role as trustee, Steve has several township committee assignments, including the planning commission, zoning board of appeals, parks, and KABA.
