Paul Mitchell is the former CEO and owner of Ross Education. Paul oversaw the relocation of the executive headquarters to St. Clair. At Ross, Paul led a school group that provided education and skills-training to 6,000 students annually at 19 campuses. Ross became a national leader in providing workforce services for dislocated workers and long-term public assistance recipients throughout the nation that were critical to the success of the welfare to work program.
“I believe in common-sense conservative leadership. Say what you mean and do what you say. Too many politicians mostly talk, but fail to deliver tangible results,” stated Paul Mitchell. “We need genuine, sincere conservative leadership in Macomb County and Michigan’s Thumb, the kind of leadership delivered by Candice Miller for the last 12 1⁄2 years. I look forward to speaking with and listening to the voters of this district because I believe strongly that first you must listen to effectively lead. That discussion and this campaign begin today.”
Paul Mitchell and his wife Sherry reside in Dryden Township in Lapeer County and have 6 children.
Paul Mitchell also announced that Jamie Roe will be joining the campaign as General Consultant. Roe served as Chief of Staff for Congresswoman Candice Miller for the last 12 1⁄2 years and previously served as campaign manager for her successful campaign for Congress in 2002 and her re-election campaign for Secretary of State in 1998. Don Brown, Macomb County Commissioner and former Deputy District Director for Rep. Candice Miller for the last 12 1/2 years, will be joining the Mitchell campaign as Campaign Manager.
“Paul Mitchell’s common-sense conservative leadership along with his record of job creation in the 10th District will make him a strong voice for the people,” stated Jamie Roe, Macomb Township resident. “I am proud to join his team and look forward to working with him as we build a top flight campaign that is worthy of the people of the 10th District and is focused on the critical issues facing our district, our state and this great nation.”
“I have served the people of Macomb County for years and know a strong leader when I see one. We need a strong, principled leader to deal with issues involving national security and the economy. The way Paul Mitchell deals with issues straight on like he dealt with Proposal 1 is why Paul Mitchell is the right choice for our district,” stated Don Brown, Washington Township resident.
