Wayne Township is my life-long home. I even own the home that I grew up in. That home is in the Lafayette Heights neighborhood in south Wayne township. I graduated from Ben Davis High School in 1969 and started my career at Link-Belt (later Rexnord) that same year. In 1985 I was elected President of Steelworkers Local 1999 and have been a proud leader of Indiana's labor movement ever since. I retired in June of 2017 and shortly after decided to run for Wayne Township Trustee.
