Gisler Statement on Candidacy for the County Board

gisler2I am completing my third term as a County Commissioner and am eager to continue representing the citizens of South County.

I am a strong voice for common-sense, fiscally-responsible government. Three principles guide my decisions: (1) limited government, (2) personal responsibility and (3) individual liberty.

I serve on the following county boards: Aeronautics, Older Adult Services, Public Works, Planning Commission, Community Action and Transit. I’m the Liaison to the Road Commission.

I attend township and village meetings. This lets me know the issues that are important to South County residents. I bring updates of recent county decisions.

The budget for Kalamazoo County is $90 million. If additional funding is needed for senior services, it should come from that existing budget. That’s why I recommend a “NO” vote on the senior millage. We all have a stake in the county’s prosperity.

South County resident 42 years. Married to Gail 52 years. 2 kids, 4 grandkids and 2 great-grandkids.

Forty years in pharmaceutical business. Degrees: Biology (Wabash College) and Finance (Syracuse University).

I enjoy assisting South County. Reach me at or 269-323-0259.
