Dan Schulte is a native Detroiter. He is a University of Michigan graduate who paid his way through college, working part-time during the school year and working summers in auto factories, construction and driving heavy trucks.
Dan made a career in marketing and media production. He is a firm advocate of accountability, which he has thoroughly and continuously demonstrated throughout his tenure as councilman and Mayor Pro Tem in Grosse Pointe Shores. He strongly supports public awareness and public involvement in government decision-making.
Dan is an active civic leader who has worked on community programs for over 15 years. He has served on the Parish Council of St. Paul Catholic Church for six years. He is a strong advocate for public safety in the community. He knows that quality-of-life, excellence in education and economic growth all depend on a community that is safe and secure for its people – especially children and seniors. A clean, safe community is the foundation of a promising future.
Like many of us, Dan remembers when Michigan’s economy was strong with a stable job market and plenty of opportunities for anyone who had the ambition to pursue a career.
With our beautiful Great Lakes and abundant supply of fresh water, Michigan is one of the nation’s most beautiful states and should be a prime destination for businesses, industries and growing technologies.
Dan wants to help build an economy in District 1 and throughout Michigan that will do more than just create short-term, low-wage jobs. We need employers who can offer quality, long-term careers with wages substantial enough to support families. Michigan needs to provide incentives that will encourage existing industries to keep more of their operations right here in this state.
Michigan already has many excellent colleges and universities. Dan wants to improve the performance of our pre-K through 12 programs so that more Michigan students meet the entrance requirements of these institutions of higher learning. He also wants to work with legislators and regents to make a college education more affordable for Michigan residents.
The same applies to vocational programs and skilled trades. Not every career requires a college education and not every person wants to pursue a college degree. Dan wants to see more opportunities for people to learn skills and enter careers that fulfill the needs of a state with a promising future.
Dan would like to hear from you. He knows that good government begins by listening to what the citizens have to say. In order to make District 1 and the State of Michigan as good as it can be, the voice of the people must be heard and understood.
When you cast your vote, remember that Dan has lived up to his commitments as an elected official and will continue to live up to his commitments to make District 1 and the State of Michigan a better place to learn, work and enjoy life.
