I am not seeking to be your 5th District County Commissioner to fulfill my desire to be a lifelong politician. Instead, I am seeking the position to serve you and to represent you, your family, and your interests well on the Berrien County Commission, and to do so in a dignified manner.
I am a lifetime resident of the 5th District, have been happily married to my wife Christine for 33 years, and have raised three sons in this community. I am a semi-retired former Senior Technical Writer, having served in the graphic arts and communications industries for many years in account management and other duties performed under tight deadlines and budgets, while at the same time delivering results that were on time, under budget, and of the highest quality.
I currently hold part-time staff positions at Napier Parkview Baptist Church in Benton Harbor where I also serve on the Board of Deacons. I am also a member of the Berrien County Republican Executive Committee, serve as Republican Precinct Delegate for Precinct 2 of the City of St. Joseph, and also serve as Secretary of the Board of Directors of CIS (Christian Involvement in Service), a locally based missionary organization supporting church plants and drug rehabilitation centers in Russia and Ukraine.
