A resident of the Grand Rapids area since March of 2020, Tim comes from Midwestern values as a former resident of Northwestern Iowa. Bringing these values with him, he moved to Grand Rapids with his wife, Julie, to work on Michigan political campaigns.

A certificated flight instructor focused on aviation education, he currently works with students pursuing aviation training for both career and personal flying desires. While aviation is a passion, so is improving the community in which he lives.

Tim is planning on staying here and giving back to his community. Taking up the challenge to be part of the solutions, not just complaining about problems. Citizens need representatives who will listen to their needs and bring their concerns to their governing bodies. It is time that Kent County District 18 has someone who will do exactly that on the Kent County Board of Commissioners.
