Name: J. Michael Galbraith
City of Residence: Maumee, Ohio
Party Affiliation: Democrat
Office Sought: U.S. House of Representatives – Ohio 5th District
Election Website: http://www.galbraithforcongress.com
Why should you be elected?
The incumbent is out of touch with the constituents of our district. He never holds face to face town hall meetings and only does the bidding of the party powerful. Every piece of legislation he supports is directly detrimental to the wellbeing of middle class and working people. He is complicit in undermining our democracy to the extent that he and his co-conspirators want to create a mirror image of the Russian oligarchy here in our beloved United States of America.
Top Three Priorities:
- Access to affordable health care for everyone
- Replenish money stolen from the Social Security Fund to pay the rich and powerful
- Strengthen efforts to ensure we have clean water to drink and clear air to breathe
(I) grew up in a lively household in Maumee, Ohio. Despite all of us scurrying around in different directions, my mother managed to squeeze in a job as a real estate agent. My father owned and ran a construction business in addition to serving as a State Representative in the Ohio Legislature.
During the summers, I set up a small enterprise mowing neighbors’ lawns and working with my grandfather on his strawberry farm. After graduating from high school in Maumee, I went to Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania where I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics. Soon after graduation, my work took me to Europe, where I met my wife, Ditte.
Since returning in 2003, I earned my Master of Business Administration Degree from Bowling Green State University, started my own small investment management business, and taught finance and management at BGSU. I am a member of the Rotary Club of Toledo and serve on its Water Services Committee.
