Bill was elected as the Township Supervisor in November of 2004. He was asked to run for the position by a group of township residents who felt he had the credentials and experience to be a successful Supervisor. One of his goals since taking the position has been to take township government to the people by making sure they have the information needed to voice their opinions and give input on decisions knowledgeably. He would also like to see more residents become involved in the township.
Bill has lived in the township since 1997 with his wife Carol. They have been married for over fifty years. They have one daughter named Susan, who lives in Battle Creek, Michigan with her husband Tim and children, Griffin and Alexandria. Bill’s favorite thing about living in the township is the wide variety of outdoor activities it offers, as well as the friendship and support of their neighbors in the township.
Besides being the Township Supervisor, Bill also teaches classes in Psychology at Kalamazoo Valley Community College and Grand Valley State University. Before moving to the township he was a faculty member and administrator at Indiana University and at the University of Maine. Bill is also a member of the Fraternal Order of Elks, the National Rifle Association, SASS, NCOWS, and The North American Hunting Club. When he does have some spare time, he enjoys working in his yard, hunting, fishing, gunsmithing, woodworking, camping, and spending time with his grandchildren.
