Gary has served the Michigan Legislature over a 20 year period, with time evenly split between the Michigan House & Senate. Presently, his primary responsibilities are focused on constituent issues in the office of Senator Dale Zorn.
Additionally, Gary enjoys teaching political science courses as an adjunct instructor at Delta College- about 3 miles away from his mother’s homestead. Gary has taught college courses continuously since his Hamline graduation in 1982.
Gary & wife Judi have been blessed with good health, sons Marty, Paul and Joel, and grandson, Conner. Gary encourages his students to speak up in class. While he values their active participation to be sure, it is primarily because at his age he has difficulty hearing them.
