Commissioner Shannon Price was elected to the Wayne County Commission in November 2012. As a husband and a father of two, he balances his commitment and dedication to his family with his desire to serve local communities. His unique blend of lifelong passions - technology and government - have been assets in his work with non-profit organizations and local municipalities where he has a proven record in managing projects and developing and managing communication plans. Past projects include working in concert with Canton Township officials on projects designed to ease traffic congestion along Ford Road and leading the fight to assist Schoolcraft College in filling the nearly 12,000 nursing vacancies in Michigan.
Prior to representing non-profit organizations and municipalities, Shannon Price preformed constituent relations for the Attorney General’s office for both the previous Attorney General and current Attorney General Bill Schuette. His responsibilities included responding to constituent request, complaints, inquiries and meeting with local business, community, civic organizations and political leaders throughout Southeast Michigan on behalf of the Attorney General. Within his community, Price has been and remains a dedicated and community activist. He has served as the senior vice commander of the Sons of the American Legion post 396, serves the Canton community with the Lions club and is a proud PTO dad. His experience as a business owner and working man’s perspective will make him a strong advocate for Wayne county businesses and the constituents of Western Wayne County.
Price’s experience in information technology and his dedicated community involvement allow him to bring a new and innovative approach to provide efficient and user friendly county services and promote collaboration with neighboring communities.
Price has been married to his wife, Jacqueline, for 16 years and is the father of Maddie, age 9, and Brady, age 6.
