Councilwoman Barbara Ziarko
History and Evaluation of the Candidate
Barbara Ziarko is currently in her 16th year of service as a member of the Sterling Heights City Council. Since the resignation of former Council Member Joseph Romano, Mrs. Ziarko has held the position of Mayor Pro-Tem.
Never afraid to disagree, politely, with the other members of council, she has a clearly articulated opinion on most matters that come before her, and like most of the other incumbents she is comfortable with being the odd one out on occasion. In my conversations with her over the years I have gone from being turned off by her decision making style to respecting it for what it is: an honest effort to take into consideration what’s best for the city as a whole. It is not always an easy burden to carry, but she remains true to her goal of doing what’s best for the city.
