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.


On the issues - District 6 candidates for the Livingston County Board of Commissioners


I'm proud that my campaign presents a clear choice to District 6 voters. While my opponent and I agree on some of the biggest problems plaguing our community -- roads and infrastructure, opioids, a transportation system that adequately serves the changing needs of our county demographics -- it's clear that only one candidate truly believes in investing our resources in these problems, while my opponent thinks change will eventually come by maintaining the status quo. I believe that if you want change, you have to work for it.
