Portage, It's Time to Lead!
Its Time to Lead the Region


  • Low Taxes
    I will defend Portage from the expanding tax base of the county and city of Kalamazoo. It is time for the county to follow Portage, not the other way around.
  • Improve Services
    I will work with the city manager, Larry Shaffer, to improve city services and be responsive to our citizens.
  • Increase Citizen Satisfaction
    I will work to make Portage the best price for your dollar. There is no place like home!

My Commitment to YOU:

I sell steel to Michigan companies that make great products for everyday living, products you can depend upon. I will bring that same “Solid as Steel” reputation to work for you as YOUR council person to ensure that YOU have a city government that is accountable to YOU. I pride myself on customer service, and when it comes to good government YOU ARE MY CUSTOMER!
