Tasha Green has completed a four year term on the Westland City Council. She did not run for re-election in 2021 and will no longer serve as City Councilwoman. In a farewell message, Councilwoman Green writes:

“Today officially marks the last day of my 4-year term as Westland City Councilwoman. It has been an incredible run and a pleasure to work on behalf of 85,000 residents in hopes of making Westland a better place to live, work, and play. From partnering with organizations who helped me bring vital resources to Westland families, to standing firm when speaking truth to power and shedding light on all things hidden, to forcing change in the name of justice & equality for all.…it was a tough job, but someone had to do it.My accomplishments while in office, which did not include a budget or staff, include but are not limited to:• Creating Westland’s very first Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Commission. • Helping hundreds of residents obtain free medical care through a Healthcare summit. • Distributing thousands of boxes of fresh food & face mask citywide.• Secured a second COVID-19 testing site on the south side of Westland.• Secured project approval from Wayne County to repave Joy Road between Newburgh & Wayne.• Procured $80,000 in park improvements for Stottlemyer Park, which received minimal financial investment for nearly 20 years.• Helped multiple Westland families hold slumlords accountable for health & safety issues.• Successfully defended & prevented recommended budget cuts to Westland Fire Department.As I take my leave, I walk away knowing that a tangible difference was made in my city and I look forward to those who will surely rise and pick up the torch to serve earnestly on behalf of the people, without apology or compromise. May your new year and new season be extraordinary!”

Sincerely,Councilwoman Tasha Green
