State and Local Government
This page is dedicated to current events in Michigan at the state and local level. Items of interest from other states and localities will be featured from time to time, but my focus is on where I live. Having over a dozen years of Michigan civil service experience, 23 years of Michigan National Guard service, and being newly-seated on the city council of the town where I live (pop. 9,000), I have some insight into public administration and local politics, which serves me well when teaching on this topic. I hope that this page’s postings interest you in taking a more active tole where you live, as informed citizen participation is the foundation of self-government.
