He has been a part of this community since 1961 when my father moved here to Manage the local propane gas company. In 2002 when the local Paper Mill closed Martin and his brother Bill started a business and ran it for the next 20 years before selling it. Martin has never held political office until now and looks forward to being a Servant Leader in our Community. His goal is to help bring jobs to our community so our Children and Grandchildren will be able to live here comfortably and raise their families.
He serves as Care Pastor at Southeast Community Church, and has served on many boards throughout our community. In the past he was also Chairman of our local Chamber of Commerce as well as co- chairing the Eagle Scout Banquets until covid stopped that.
His love for our community has given him the desire to be involved and active here over the years, to make our community as safe and prosperous as possible.
