About Carl

Carl is running for Congress in Michigan’s newly formed 10th District in Macomb and Oakland counties. Carl has deep roots in our community, having served for almost 40 years as the Macomb County Prosecutor, an Assistant US attorney, and most recently as a judge on the 16th Judicial Circuit Court and Probate Court. Oakland and Macomb counties have always represented the heart of innovation and hard work in Michigan. Carl is running because it is absolutely vital to our country that we lead in creating good-paying American jobs by being at the forefront of new industries like clean energy and advanced vehicles.  Carl strongly believes that we must bring back home supply chain jobs from dangerous regimes like those in China while protecting our Great Lakes and Lake St. Clair for generations to come. Carl loves this community and has lived in Macomb County his entire life.
