District A Candidate - unopposed

St. Ignace

Happy 2023 to district A and to all Cloverland members.  It has been an honor and privilege to serve as a Cloverland board member for the last 5 years.  During the last 5 years the board has been hard at work for you.  In that time, we have improved our equity ratio from 17% to over 31%.  We cut director’s pay, and we been upgrading our facilities to better serve you.

As most of you know we did raise rates in 2023.  This was the first increase in 5 years.  We are still one of lowest rates for co-ops in Michigan.  As a director I have strived do the best job I can for all members and you can be rest assured I will continue to look out for your best interest.

I have been a lifelong resident of District A.  I am married to my wife of 30 years, I have 3 daughters and 4 grandkids.  I am a retired deputy sheriff, I was a volunteer fireman for 30 years and have been a city of St. Ignace city council member for 17 years, and am currently serving as mayor.

I ask for your support in the upcoming election and look forward to working as hard as I can for all members.  Thank you for your time and have a great 2023.
