The race for the Republican nomination in the 73rd District includes me and fellow Republicans John Decker, Brian Downs, Brady Middleton, Tom Norton, Frank Pfaff, Robert Regan. The Democratic nominee is expected to be Mary Polonowski.
I believe my financial experience and conservative principles are just a couple of the factors that set me apart from these other candidates. As a CPA, the Treasurer of Grand Rapids Township, co-owner of Afendoulis Cleaners & Tuxedos and a former CFO, my unmatched qualifications will enable me to promote policies which create jobs, find long term solutions for fixing the roads and bridges, and provide efficient and effective government.
I would greatly appreciate your support and encourage you to get in contact with me if you have any questions.
