Joe has retired as a manager with the Federal Public Service after a 26 year career.

Joe is very involved in his community and has served on the boards of many charitable and not-for-profit organizations.  He also hosts a weekly municipal affairs program for TVCOGECO, the local cable community television station, where he covers issues dealt with by city and county councils. His great passions in life are his personal faith and value system, his family, friends, sports, the arts, and a strong supporter of Greyhound rescue.

With his spouse Anh, Mike has also recently established a value accommodation. "Cardinal Place ", a former convent, is completely renovated as a small, European style inn complete with a small wedding chapel and optional catering.
