As a 2nd term Jackson County Commissioner in District 3...I represent the people of Leoni and Summit Townships. As Commissioner I am working hard in a variety of roles in Jackson County and Leoni Township, to help people keep what they have and to improve opportunities. To help accomplish this...people need to be informed, to be heard, and to know their ideas will help improve our community.
My family and I have been residents of Leoni Township and Jackson County for generations. I have been married to Penny for over 30 years. We have a son BJ and a son Ryan, who died at age 19, and lives in Heaven. Our families are members of Grace Church.
My life and educational background have been essential in my service to help people. Some of my service’s to our community involved being a Jackson City Police Officer, a Mental Health Therapist, and a business owner in Leoni Township for over 16 years. I also have been involved in various levels of education, worked in heat treating and hard iron at Hayes Albion, as UAW member 474. Currently I am working as founder of a website ministry for parents and loved ones whom had a child die.
As your Commissioner on your Jackson County Commission, along with the other Commissioners, we are working hard on strategic priorities such as : Improved work environment, safe community, education, economic development, recreational and cultural opportunities, healthy community, and cooperation between governments. Along with many other priorities our objective is to provide SERVICE to the people in our community.
