What makes Clawson a great community? "The people. We have more residents than anything else and we need to tap into that."
What are the biggest challenges facing Clawson? “There are a lot of cities that face state takeover… I want to be self-sufficient. We are going to see more foreclosures. Our tax levels are going to be going down. Our parks are not in the best shape." DiAntonio added that he wants to decrease the number of vacant homes in the city.
What solutions do you support? Tapping residents for donations to fix the park along with multi-level fundraising. Finding services that we can provide for other neighboring cities. Bringing in more family businesses which could attract more residents.
What makes you a good candidate? "I'm excited about politics. I bring patience, I'm a problem solver and I get results. I can listen to the people and stand up for what they believe in."
