The voters of Clinton Township selected Laura Cardamone for Clinton Township Trustee in November 2020.
Prior to her election, Laura served a six-year term on the Chippewa Valley Schools Board of Education. During that time, the board was charged with balancing many priorities. Their work included developing an appropriate COVID-19 response, securing funding through an additional bond, setting guidelines for union contracts, supporting updates in curriculum and technology, filling significant staff positions, and updating a district-wide strategic plan. She is also a member of the Chippewa Valley Coalition for Youth and Families and plans to stay active in her new role.
As a social worker for more than 30 years, Laura has worked tirelessly to advocate for change by focusing on problem resolution, empowerment and growth, and accountability. Running for trustee was a decision made from a strong belief in applying her skills to improve the community. Laura sees much potential for the Township to partner with its school districts and small businesses to encourage more equity. In the wake of the pandemic, she continues to promote mental and physical health throughout the community.
