About Sally Hart Petersen
I moved to Ann Arbor from Massachusetts in 1996 with my husband Tim and 5-week old baby Jack. Tim convinced me that it would be possible to live and work and raise a family all in Ann Arbor. And he was right. 


I became a volunteer in this community from the start. I joined the Significant Others and Spouses (SOS) Club at the University of Michigan Business School (now Ross) and chaired a fundraiser for Ronald McDonald House. Later, I served as President and Co-President of the Angell PTO and Tappan PTSO. I have been a Board Member of the Ann Arbor Art Center, the Ann Arbor Area Community Tennis Association, and the Racquet Club of Ann Arbor. I am a Past President of the Junior League of Ann Arbor, Inc. and am currently a Board Member of the Neutral Zone and the Huron high School Athletic Booster Club. 

We have now lived in the Ann Arbor Hills neighborhood of Ward 2 for 15 years. Tim has successfully launched his own company in Ann Arbor, and we are the parents of two teenagers; Jack now 16 and Jane, 14.  I've become increasingly intrigued by the challenges and issues this city faces. I am not a career politician, but I feel my business and community leadership experience prepares me well to be an effective leader in this city.
