Brett is a resident of the Seminole Hills, Historic District and a small business owner in Downtown Pontiac, having purchased the Liberty Bar (Pontiac’s longest operating business and Oakland Counties longest operating Bar & Restaurant). Brett owns and operates a human resource consulting firm, helping organizations realize their potential through establishing strong policy and human capital management strategies, a skill that would be incredibly valuable in a largely unstaffed city hall. 

Brett confidently navigated the challenges of the global pandemic, by developing philanthropic opportunities for his patrons to purchase meals at the restaurant for first responders and displaced homeless residents of the city. Personally, you can find Brett enjoying our local eateries, volunteering on the campaigns of democratic change makers he believes in such as Congresswoman Brenda Lawrence, County Treasurer Andy Meisner (and many others), singing karaoke at The Liberty Bar, at our trails and parks on his bike or walking his dog Joni around our neighborhoods
