About Commissioner Julie Matuzak
Commissioner Julie Matuzak was elected in November 2020 to her first two-year term as a County Commissioner. She represents Clinton Township as the District 12 Commissioner.
Matuzak’s career before joining the BOC was still focused on public service, addressing issues such as wages and benefits, the right to organize, access to educational opportunities and securing long-term retirement benefits for individuals. She was able to work on these issues through her positions as a Congressional Aide for former Congressman David Bonior; the Executive Director of the local Democratic Party; Executive Director of the Interfaith Center for Racial Justice (ICRJ); and the Political Coordinator/Editor for the American Federation of Teachers – Michigan (AFT-MI). Currently, Matuzak is retired working a part-time job as an office manager for a small manufacturing company.
As a Commissioner, wants to ensure services are provided in efficient, ethical and inclusive means--all values Matuzak is committed to--and she also recognizes that policies need to address the root of many problems. One such issue she touched on was how in order to have more women run for office issues such as childcare, inclusivity and violence against women must first be tackled. Matuzak, 66, is a single adoptive mother to her 24-year-old daughter Allie. She has resided in the Clinton Township/Mount Clemens areas for the past 39 years. Other interests of hers include learning new things by keeping an open mind, especially by listening to younger generations, traveling to experience new cultures and places and reading and writing.
