Michael has spent his career navigating politics and advocating for infrastructure and transportation development. He helped pay for college through a variety of construction jobs giving him a unique perspective from the front lines of the industry.

In 2008, the Alliance helped passed Proposition 1a, which allocated funds for the California High-Speed Rail Authority, as well as Proposition 22 in 2010, which protected local transportation funding. In 2014, the Alliance was instrumental in the passage of Proposition 1, which invested $7.5 billion to upgrade California’s water infrastructure. His broad portfolio covers legislative, political and regulatory issues, as well as statewide ballot initiatives and local transportation sales tax measures.

Michael currently lives in Sacramento with his wife Laura, a PR/public affairs consultant, and adopted mutts.
