I'm Devin and I want to work for YOU.
WHAT I BELIEVE
I am a fourth generation Michigan resident. In my 57 years, my beautiful wife, Betty, and I have raised two thriving college graduates. I love my family, my county, my state and my country, and the freedom and diversity that comes along with it! When things threaten that freedom, I get worried. I want to help put trust back into our American electoral process and our American Democratic System. We need to rejoin our allies for freedom around the globe. We also need to embrace our “melting pot” of cultures by celebrating and calibrating, not melting them down into our own limited vision. All hope begins with us working together within our communities.That's why I'm not afraid to reach across the isle. I know it strengthens us and everyone benefits. It's the very reason I am a candidate and why I'd love your support on November 3!

We deserve a County Clerk that provides accurate, fast and friendly service from a diverse staff that reflects the community it serves. Every citizen deserves to feel their ballot is safe if they mail it in, drop it off, or vote at the ballot box. And, every citizen, member of the court and business has a right to a Recorder of Deeds who empathizes with the community and understands the importance of organization effectiveness, efficiency and confidentiality.
