Ward 2 Commissioner Deschaine

Roxanne DeschaineMy name is Roxanne Deschaine, and I am honored to be serving as a Walker City Commissioner. I am one of two commissioners representing the 2nd Ward, and my family and I reside at 2621 Meadow Woods Drive, NW, Walker, Michigan.

I am employed at ODL Incorporated and have a strong background in Purchasing, Planning, and Supply Chain Management. My company's focus, as well as my own, is "customer satisfaction, processes with results, maintaining the highest ethical standard, and to focus on integrity in the conduct of our business!" As a Commissioner, I will implement this same philosophy when serving the people/community of Walker.

Although I started my role as a Commissioner in November of 2017, I have always been active within the Walker Community. My Grandmother always said, "If you want to become involved in your community, volunteer!" Well, I took her words to heart because I have been serving on committees for the great City of Walker since 2002, serving first on the Walker Festival Committee where I eventually became the chair. This role provided a great opportunity for me to meet and interact with the wonderful citizens and businesses of Walker. I then had the privilege to serve on the Walker Youth Commission. I especially enjoy interacting with Walker's young adults to help nurture and develop their involvement in the City of Walker and its government! Both committees have been very rewarding experiences.


As a City Commissioner, I am committed to:

  • Ensuring adequate Police and Fire Production
  • Protecting your Walker Tax Dollars
  • Making local roads and intersections safer
  • Preserving green space
  • Keeping Walker "Business" Friendly

In addition to my City Commission seat, I am actively serving/involved on the following Walker committees:

  • Finance Committee
  • Walker Youth Commission
  • Ordinance Committee - Alternate
  • Building Committee
  • Adopt a Road Program - The Deschaine Family is proud to be part of this wonderful program.

    • Abbey Longstreth (Husband Jeff)
