“A restraint of natural liberty, not necessary or expedient for the public, is tyranny or oppression.”
Noah Webster, 1828 Dictionary on civil liberty.
Todd Courser is passionate about protecting the civil liberties of the residents of 25th district and the State of Michigan. Todd can relate to the many difficulties faced by his constituents. He has an entrepreneurial spirit and sincere passion for our Constitutional heritage, as well as a deep desire to be a servant-leader.
Todd developed strong business skills while growing up on a small Lapeer County farm. On the farm, as a young businessman, Todd raised 3-day-old, bottle-fed calves to 200 pounds and then sold them to 4-H kids for their projects. He worked at Windy Knoll Farms cleaning stalls and baling hay as well as in the Deer Shed, the family deer processing business, where he continued his business education working side-by side with his dad. He used his own money to buy his first vehicle, an orange, ‘57 Ford pickup truck with a white roof. He had learned that hard work and a frugal life-style had merit.
As a student, Todd graduated from Lapeer East High School, worked his way through Mott Community College and finally graduated from UM-Flint where he studied business. He was inspired by several mentors to consider his Constitutional Heritage and the solid foundation laid by our forefathers, which led him to study law. He graduated from Thomas M. Cooley Law School and his law firm specializes in estate planning, bankruptcy, and resolution of taxation issues. He is both an accountant and an attorney.
Todd and his wife, Fon, have been married for 12 years and together they have four children. They attend North Branch Wesleyan Church, where Todd served as a Board Member for many years. He also served on the School Board of Heritage Christian Academy.
