Michael and his wife Audrey moved to the “Chosen Spot” from Rochester in 2018 because of the community’s welcoming attitude, historic charm, access to the best of the Finger Lakes, and the jewel that is Canandaigua Lake. The excellent school system became an additional benefit when they welcomed their son Lewis to the world in 2020.
Michael grew up in Rochester and spent his childhood visiting Roseland Amusement Park, Canandaigua’s local restaurants, and spending time with family in the area.
Michael lived in Atlanta for nearly 20 years after attending graduate school there but is a rare “boomerang” who came back to the Finger Lakes as an adult. Upon returning he fell in love with a region that had grown so much during his time away. And he wants to lend his entrepreneur’s perspective and decades of experience tackling environmental, business, and community issues to protect our city and region's bright future.
When elected, Michael will champion policies that:
-Drive strategic regional economic development through collaboration wit the town and county
-Protect and invest in our natural resources and produces a comprehensive solid waste plan
-Maintain the lowest possible tax burden on our citizens while improving local services
-Invest in small businesses, families, and our community
