Carrie Budzinski

Livonia City Council, MI

Carrie has been passionate about government and democracy since her first visit to Washington, DC when she was 9 years old. After graduating from college with a dual major in History and Political Science, she worked for Senator Carl Levin for over 5 years handling constituent services in the areas of Social Security, Veterans Affairs, Housing and Education.

2020 brought to light a lot of problems and pain in our country. A global pandemic, economic insecurity for workers and business owners, racial injustice, climate change and a pervasive political divide. The problems can feel overwhelming but we have to start somewhere and Carrie believes we can have the biggest impact where we live.

Carrie is running for Livonia City Council to use her experience with constituent services to connect with her neighbors, understand what improvements can be made in their community, and work to find solutions that make Livonians feel good about where they live.

Carrie lives in Livonia, MI with her husband and two sons. She works full-time managing the operations of LittleGuide Detroit and is active in multiple community organizations and hosts a monthly education web series called Vote.Run.Serve.
