Kasey Helton writes and publishes The Hell-Fire Review, a blog for and about Livingston County progressives — that tenacious pack of Blue underdogs.

Helton is a former local newspaper reporter who ran for County Commission in 2018 and lost. She has spent over 20 years as a resident of Marion Township, where she lives with her husband, Jim, a steelworker, and her rescue mutt, Obi.

Her work has also been featured in The Livingston Post, Open Salon, and the Detroit blog Dyspathy. She likes to give hits on the track playing roller derby, and sometimes she swears a lot.


Helton challenges county status quo at candidate forum

Listen to my opening statement and responses to questions about local issues at our most recent candidate forum Oct. 8, sponsored by the PPHH Chamber of Commerce that aired on Hamburg’s public access television. My opponent was a no-show, but that didn’t stop me from challenging his dismal record on everything from roads, to veterans affairs, to the environment.

A very special ‘thank you’ to my supporter, John Machowicz, for editing this footage.
