Nancy A. Hubbard was elected to her sixth consecutive term as a member of the Dearborn City Council, having been first elected to Council in 1989.
Hubbard is well known throughout Dearborn for gaining first hand knowledge of issues by going out to locations to meet with the residents and investigating the facts of each situation.
A 1950 Fordson High School graduate, she is a lifetime resident of Dearborn. She attended Michigan State University for two years under the liberal arts program, and attended Dearborn Junior College (now Henry Ford Community College) for one year.
Hubbard is very active in the community and can be seen actively participating in most City sponsored events. She is a member of the East Dearborn Kiwanis Club, a member of the Dearborn Historical Society, the Women’s Association for the Dearborn Orchestral Society (WADOS), the Dearborn Historical Foundation, the Friends of the Dearborn Library and the Dearborn Community Arts Council. She also belongs to the Ladies Golf League, Dearborn Goodfellows, Fordson High Alumni Association, Chamber of Commerce, and previously volunteered for Meals on Wheels.
Hubbard is the only daughter of the late Orville L. Hubbard, who served as Dearborn’s Mayor from 1942-1977. In 1954 Hubbard’s father had a “Think” program going on for his department heads, which attracted national media coverage from Time, Newsweek and Life Magazine. A spread on his “Think” program was displayed and Nancy’s picture appeared in Life Magazine on February 22, 1954 and she received more attention than her famous father. She received a telegram from Solly Baiano, Casting Director for Warner Bros. Studio, which her dad quickly dismissed as someone playing a joke on her. She was also picked to be Sweetheart of Sigma Chi at the University of Michigan.
In her professional life, Nancy worked for Campbell Ewall Advertising as a secretary for Mr. John Reed and then worked at Ford Motor Company’s Lincoln Continental Division as a secretary for Mr. Richard Haupt. She later worked in several city departments including Building & Safety and Public Works.
Hubbard is very well known in Dearborn. She returns all her telephone calls and takes good care of people by taking the time to listen to their concerns or problems. She is very active in the community and attends ribbon cutting ceremonies and is seen out and about Dearborn all the time.
Hubbard has been married to John since she was 21 years old and is the mother of two sons and one daughter.
