About Mike

A hometown leader
Growing up in a working class family, I learned the value of sacrifice and hard work. My Dad had a cleaning company and began taking me on jobs when I was eight years old. I actually remember the first time that I went with my Dad, working right beside him scrubbing the floors and cleaning the walls. I worked hard and thought that I was being a huge help to my Dad. It wasn’t until years later that my Dad let me know that he used to go back behind me and redo most of my work. It bothered me then, but now, as a father of three, I understand the importance of the lessons my Dad was teaching me — about personal responsibility, doing a job right, and sacrificing for your family and your community.
