Lake antoine Park beach wall build is underway!

Help restore and improve the LAKE ANTOINE PARK BEACH! The old wall is long gone. Erosion has taken its toll. A new wall is necessary to preserve the beach for future generations. It will be reminiscent of the old wall. Designed as a "sitting wall" only 2.5 feet high, it will provide unobstructed views of the lake. The new wall will define an area of fresh clean sand, and expand the beach to 370' X 35' (from the water's edge). 1200 blocks are needed to complete this project.  Construction begins on June 1, and we need those blocks to get it done.

You have the option to purchase as many bricks as you wish. All donors' names will be listed on a plaque, unless anonymity is requested. Your donation will also be acknowledged by Lake Antoine Park Partners. Thank you for your generous support. Follow this link to place your order:  Not comfortable with online purchases?

ROBOtics first district competition at Kingsford high school

Congratulations to IM ROBOT 7020 for placing 2nd at District Competition in Kingsford. The IM team was made up of three 7th Graders and one 8th Grader and this is only their second competitive year! They have a great future in these competitions. 
I had the opportunity to meet the mentors/parents from Rochester MI. They gave me a quick lesson in how the tournament works and invited me into the Pit area (see pictures) to see all of the fantastic machines these kids build from scratch. IM ROBOT 7020 is the last picture in this series. Amazing!
Thanks to Bonnie Clifton Greenleaf for keeping me up to date on the competition. Her daughter is on IM ROBOT TEAM 7020! Go Hailey!

  • Review and update Commissioner Policy and Procedures
  • Continue Lake Antoine Park improvements through fundraising, capital campaigns, grants and County appropriations
  • Continue my membership on State and County committees, and
  • Support the employees and retirees of Dickinson County Healthcare System

It will be my great honor to continue to serve all people of Dickinson County.  I am resourceful, focused, intelligent and productive.  I have the experience and knowledge necessary to be efficient and effective as a county commissioner. I have proven I can get the job done! If you reside in District 3, please vote for me on November 6.  If you live elsewhere, please share my achievements and plans with others. Thank you!

Beliefs and Values

Unprecedented challenges require bold leadership to find the right solutions. 


The time has come for us to proactively and aggressively seek out new options for growth and development for Dickinson County so that the tax base expands and reduces the burden on our residents. County Commissioners no longer have the option of sitting back and simply maintaining the status quo. As a County Commissioner, I am committed to working with local government leaders to develop long-range strategic plans and goals for economic, recreational and cultural development. We will strive to make our County more attractive for our residents and to individuals and businesses that are considering making Dickinson County their home. 

Your Voice Will Be Heard

I like to converse with my constituents in personal encounters.

We can meet for coffee and conversation about your concerns.  Send me an email or give me a call to set something up.
