I am honored and privileged to serve the citizens of Brownstown Charter Township as supervisor. I have lived in Brownstown since 2010 but I am a lifelong Downriver resident. My wife Barbara and I have two grandchildren.
“Service is the rent we pay for the space we occupy.” – Mohammed Ali
Service has defined my life. I served as UAW plant chairman for seven years as part of the historic West Side Local 174. And for almost 35 years, I have been a financial advisor, helping individuals and businesses be financially secure.
Since 2014, I have served on the Brownstown Downtown Development Authority (DDA) board, and as chair since 2018. The DDA’s mission is to bring business to the area, help them be successful and improve the quality of life for residents.
I have also been a member of the Woodhaven-Brownstown Rotary Club for over 25 years. Rotary is a nonprofit, international service organization that brings people together to provide community service, promote integrity, peace, goodwill, and understanding around the world.
My club makes a direct impact on our community by addressing food insecurity and facilitating Warm Coats for Kids, the special needs Fishing Derby and more. Rotary’s vision of fairness and helping others carries over into the decisions I make both in business and my personal life.
I look forward to serving my community and value the essential work that my employees provide.
