Michael Ramsey

Michael Ramsey is a Ward III Commissioner for the City of Muskegon.


As a member of the City Commission, Michael sees his objective as ensuring that all residents have an opportunity to take an active role in Muskegon’s momentum. He sees his role as an intentional facilitator for inclusive decision making.


Michael will empower Ward III’s voice within the government; develop strategies to cultivate, recruit, and retain new and diverse leadership; and ensure that as the community continues to encourage and celebrate Muskegon’s economic expansion, those that have been engaged physically, financially, and emotionally for generations are not excluded.


In order to recognize opportunities within the City, Michael believes it is essential to include voices from all members of the community. He plans to engage and involve the residents of Ward III to ensure that they are a part of all discussions and have an active role in guiding the course. When this is done together, then the solutions that result in positive outcomes for all are achievable.
