Saginaw County Officials

"I am endorsing Amos O’Neal for State Representative 95th District, because of his long standing service in the Saginaw community. As a native, Amos has seen the evolution and challenges in Saginaw, over the past decades. With his knowledge, leadership and sound spiritual foundation, I am confident that he is ‘the’ candidate of choice."

"If you want to see a State Representative for the 95th District take office who will listen to the needs of the people and stand firm for the things he believes are not in our best interests, Amos O’Neal is our man.

 

Mr. O’Neal has also been involved in many community services and has addressed many public grievances in the past as a public servant. He was elected as Saginaw City Councilman and as Mayor Pro Tem for two terms, as well as, County Commissioner-District 9, where he acquired excellent oratory skills and the ability to hold large audiences in awe. He has served on the Saginaw Board of Public Health with me for six (6) months.

 

Mr. O’Neal is a very courteous man and has the skills of decision-making and logically approaching all the issues. I am confident that Mr. O’Neal’s presence in the law-making process for our state will be truly fruitful. I am a proud supporter of him and strongly endorse him as the State Representative – 95th District."

"I would like to thank Amos O’Neal for his service as a member of the Saginaw County Board of Commissioners. Mr. O’Neal represented his citizens with integrity and honesty. I began working with Mr. O’Neal when I was promoted to Law Enforcement Division lieutenant of the Saginaw County Sheriff Office in 2016.

 

Mr. O’Neal didn’t always vote the way I would have liked, but I respect him because I knew his decisions were made after hearing all the facts. In all of my observations of various meetings, Mr. O’Neal would be fair and listen to the issues with an open mind. I believe this is what makes him who he is, and he has my full support for State Representative of the 95th district. I only wish I could vote for him."

"I support Amos O'Neal for State Representative. Amos is a quiet leader who understands the needs of our community and is willing to take the initiative to make things right. He has always fought for what was right for people and will take that initiative to Lansing for our community."

We need a State Representative who knows how to get things done in Lansing. We believe Mr. O’Neal is well equipped to deal with these unprecedented challenges in Lansing. His past experiences as a Saginaw City Councilman and his service as Saginaw County Commissioner gives him a solid foundation to be the 95th District Representative in Lansing.

Furthermore, Mr. O’Neal is a very energetic and enthusiastic candidate. He will be a great asset to the State House in Lansing. Mr. O’Neal is a creative problem solver, with outstanding leadership abilities and he grasps new ideas quickly. He has demonstrated a high degree of loyalty and trustworthiness to his work, community, family and to his associates. He has carried out his obligations with vigor and resolve."

"I would like to give my highest endorsement to Mr. Amos Oneal, candidate for the 95th District, Michigan State House of Representatives. I have had the pleasure of knowing Amos for close to 40 years.

 

Amos O’Neal is a man of integrity, a family man, a servant of this community at every level: Neighborhoods, community, City, County and the Church. He has held positions at every level of society: Custodian, United Way Outreach Worker, Boy Scouts, Union Steward, and Mentor to senior citizens. His life personifies servanthood and standing for the rights of those he represents. He is not afraid to speak out on the issues.

 

I have NO doubt that Amos O’Neal will represent us well in Lansing. He understands the need for a united Michigan to overcome the many obstacles we have faced. He possesses the skills to cross the aisle and build alliances to help him accomplish his aggressive platform. Stand with me in supporting Amos O’Neal for the State House of Representatives, 95th District."
