Candidate Bio: Bill Stone

Candidate for Fruitport Village Council

I am running for another term on the Village Council because I love Fruitport. I am married to Rose, and have 4 adult children. I am a 1980 graduate of FHS, and have lived here most of my life. I graduated from GVSU with degrees in History, Political Science, and Education. I am starting my 18th year as a teacher, most of which was spent teaching Government, Economics, and History with Shelby Public Schools. I am now at the Muskegon Area Career Tech Center and I love it. What a great opportunity for the students of FHS and Muskegon County. In my short time on the FV Council, I have witnessed many changes. I believe there are many still to come. We have a wonderful opportunity with the waterfront and the park, and need to take advantage of and improve this asset to the Village. Additionally, the residents need somewhere to go where they can get their questions answered well and factually. We need honest answers in real time. Too many people have heard “I will need to check on that and get back to you,” only to never be contacted again. Transparency is vitally important when working with the residents of the Village of Fruitport. Thank you.
