John hayhoe was elected Delhi Township Supervisor in November 2016, having previously served as a member of the Delhi Township Board of Trustees for 12 years.
Born in Holt, John resettled here some 45 years ago, raising his family and running the family business, Hayhoe Asphalt. After selling the business to his daughter in 2013, John said he wanted to use his newly found free time to “focus on giving back to the community that has given me so much.”
But John was not new to giving back. In addition to his service on the Board of Trustees, he’s been a member of Jaycees, Kiwanis, and has been instrumental in the Holt Food Basket initiative, which provides a basked of food for the holidays to 150 families in need in the Holt Public Schools (HPS). He’s also a aleader of the local Relay for Life, the annual Easter egg hunt, and launched an annual project that provides dictionaries for HPS third graders.
“My avocation now is to focus on the township,” John says. Of his role as supervisor, John says, “We have great people working here at the township. They make us look good.”
