My name is Peter MacGregor and I have lived in Kent County since 1990 and in the Cannon Township since 1996. I am a lifelong Michigan resident and a graduate of Michigan State University’s Eli Broad College of Business.
Prior to running for the state legislature, I owned a small business for 14 years selling, installing, and servicing indoor air quality systems. I have been elected as a township trustee, township supervisor, twice as a state representative in the 73rd District, and I am currently in my second term as a state senator in the 28th District. I have a passion to serve the community I love, but due to term limits I cannot run for state office again. I want to continue to serve this community, where I have run a successful business, and raised a wonderful family.
I enjoy staying active in the community, including as a board member of the “Finish the Mission Veterans Relief Fund ” a 501c3 organization that helps veterans in Kent County; cofounder of “Volley for Mitchell,” a charity event for Duchenne’s Muscular Dystrophy; and I’m excited to enhancing my activity again with the Rockford’s Lion Club. I have been happily married for 29 years to my wife Christine and together we have raised three sons. My family attends Blythefield Hills Baptist Church in Rockford.
I am excited about this new prospect. I believe that my experience as the senate appropriations subcommittee Chair of the state health and human services budget has given me a firm footing to manage the county treasurer’s office. As a previous small business owner, managing payroll and staff is something I am familiar with. And as a former township supervisor, I learned the intricacies of local government. I am confident in my experience.
Customer service should always be the number one priority of our elected officials. Listen, commit, and deliver is my way of life. It is just as important that we work to protect Kent County’s Triple-A (AAA) bond rating as we move into these unchartered financial waters. By protecting our bond rating, we can keep taxes low, and provide superior services. I am committed to the fiscal responsibility I have demonstrated as a legislator, local elected official, and business owner.
I would appreciate your vote on August 4 & November 3.
