Meet Dr. Hank Vaupel

Meet Dr. Hank Vaupel

2014 Republican Candidate for Michigan State Representative in Livingston County

I am Dr. Hank Vaupel and I am a lifelong resident of Livingston County who has raised a family and built a small business there. Having started my business, Kern Road Veterinary Clinic in 1972, I know first hand the difficulties and expense that job providers face due to government bureaucracy and over-regulation.

Government is too large, too intrusive and too expensive with too little accountability. I will stand up for Livingston County’s conservative values and demand that state government adhere to common sense principles.

I look forward to seeing you on the campaign trail, listening to your ideas and concerns, and I hope to earn your vote.
