Mike sat on the economic development board for Washington Twp with me. He always provided great ideas , insight and support. He never missed a meeting in the 3 years I’ve been heading it. He cared about the town but more importantly, he cared about people. It came through every time he spoke. We will miss you Mike but you are home now.
