Rachelle Smit is a Christian who holds strong conservative values. She was born and raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She has been married to her husband, Dave, for 21 years and they have 3 adopted boys and also fostered several other children. Rachelle is a proud mom and Grammy to all of the children that God has placed in her life. Their family is uniquely built and she feels extremely blessed by the family God has given her. The experience and challenges that accompany adopting and fostering children of diverse nationalities has equipped her with compassion and has helped to shape and mold her into the person she is today.
Rachelle is currently the Township Clerk for Martin and Dave is a partner of Peaceful Road Farms in Martin which is their 2nd generation family dairy farm as well as a partner for Hopkins Elevator in Hopkins. They are committed to each other and share strong family values. She is firmly convinced that strong leaders need to stand in the gap to protect our freedoms of religion, speech, and health as well as protecting our right to bear arms. Conservative values need to be held to a high standard for limiting taxes, reducing government control, reforming education, securing our borders, and creating and supporting local small businesses to boost our economy from Allegan, Barry, Eaton, and Ottawa Counties to the State level. Her current position as Township Clerk is what drives her passion to work diligently on election integrity. Rachelle believes she will be a quality candidate representing the people in the 43rd District and a leading conservative voice in Lansing.
