Here’s what Mike Brennan has to say about his campaign as County Commissioner:
I have been nominated to run for Livingston County Commissioner of District 5 in the special election on August 6th.
I have been in this area much of my life. My family moved from Massachusetts to Brighton, MI in 1981. I was just about turn 2 years old. I lived in Brighton for the next sixteen years and graduated from Hartland High School in 1998.
I have a variety of skills and talents. After high school, I moved to Massachusetts to pursue a degree in Elementary Education from Eastern Nazarene College. I wanted to teach elementary students because they are the most excited learners.
College also gave me the opportunity to continue learning about every field. I am interested in writing, film-making, politics, law, music, linguistics, business start-ups, animals, space, travel, religion, and the list goes on and on.
In the summer before I started college I read a book called How to Think Like Leonardo da Vinci by Michael Gelb. It was the book that defined me other than the Bible. I believed that I could think like a genius, and I believed that others could be inspired to think like a geniuses too.
After teaching elementary school for a year, I wanted to see what it would be like to teach high school. I wasn’t sure I was smart enough to teach the wide range of learners at the high school level. I fell in love with the atmosphere in high school immediately. The students that cared about their education challenged and inspired a deeper desire for learning in myself.
I started writing my own book so that I could be a better English teacher. I recently took some time off to direct a film, Unexpected Places, and to pursue my writing career. I have begun developing plans for a tutoring center that will include classes for adults.
Teaching Constitutional Law encouraged a sense of civic duty, and I started to think seriously about public office. Now I am volunteer-teaching Constitutional Law at the Howell Carnegie Library and attending Libertarian meetings.
I hope that you will vote for me on August 6th!
