Dave Pagel interviewed Support The Center (supportthecenter.org) at his Berrien Springs Apple Packing plant on 7/23.
Dave primarily votes Republican (97% of the time). However, what came through in this interview is his integrity and a sincere desire to do the right thing even if it means voting independently of his leadership. He says he avoids a façade, and he is a “what you see and hear is what you get” kind of guy. He avoids ideological posturing, and clearly is someone who is interested in good programs to improve the State’s education (his public service started out as School Board Chairman in Berrien Springs, serving for many years), roads, prison systems (he heads the State Committee controlling 20BN in appropriations and developing reforms).
In this day and age of political posturing, Dave is refreshing.
He explained the life of public service he has lived, even while running his packing business which employs 20+ (depending on the season).
Take a listen to learn about Dave’s views and to learn about him as a person:
