Flint Water - Still not resolved from infrastructure replacement to other contaminates that still reside in the pipes.
Many different contaminates still plagues Flint and other areas within the State of Michigan. To date, the chemicals have been found at some level in the municipal drinking serving more than 2 million people around the state.
Line 5 carries oil and natural gas liquids between Superior, Wisconsin, and Sarnia, Ontario. The tunnel plan is leaving Michigan at risk for a catastrophic spill during the 7 to ten years it is expected to take to dig the $350-million tunnel.

Michigan has the highest rate in the nation for Auto Insurance!
I was Born in Detroit, Michigan in 1959 and lived there until the 1967 riots broke out and the family made the decision to move to Rochester Hills, Michigan. I graduated from Rochester Adams High school in 1977 and earned my automotive and diesel degree from Lincoln Technical Institute.
After college I started a mechanical career working on and driving trucks along with learning how to use heavy equipment like backhoes, bulldozers, and front end loaders. After my experiences with heavy equipment, I started my career in the oil field and worked with companies like Halliburton Services. When the oil fields slowed down I held multiple positions such as a Service Writer for the automobile industry, a Union Representative, Quality Control Supervisor for Hitachi, ISO 9000 Auditor, Maintenance Foreman for Maxcess Technologies, Fire Fighter, and First Responder. I spent 8-years as a Fire Fighter but law enforcement has been in my family for three generations and continues to this day.
I retired from General Motors as a mechanic and team leader. Two accomplishments that I am most proud of is being instrumental in forming the first responder program with AED's that resulted in saving 2 lives on the assembly line from heart attacks and succeeded in having the lowest team absenteeism rate of the plant with over 4,500 workers, which was a direct result of treating my team with respect.
I have been riding a motorcycle for over 50 years and have had the privileged of riding around the country. Another past time if flying airplanes and I look forward to getting my pilots license.
I find myself diversely qualified to understand the wants and needs of the people of Michigan, I understand what the people need and I am ready to undertake the challenge that is required.
