InfoCalley was born March 25, 1977 and graduated from Ionia High School in 1995. The 33-year-old now lives in Portland, Mich. where he is a state representative and has been since 2007.

He has served on the Ionia County Board of Commissioners from 2002 to 2006.

He earned a Bachelor's degree in business administration from Michigan State University in 1998; master's degree in business administration from Grand Valley State University in 2000.

Before the political scene he was a former banker at Ionia County National Bank and Irwin Union Bank.

He is married to Julie and has three children.

He is a pianist and song leader and former Sunday School teacher at his Baptist Church.

Politically he opposes abortion rights for women. "I believe in the unalienable right to life as laid out by the Declaration of Independence." He opposes a Michigan constitutional convention and a gas tax increase. "In the long term there is no future in gas taxes. Overall consumption will continue to decline due to alternative fuels and more efficient vehicles."

He strongly favors drastic changes to Michigan's tax system and making Michigan a right-to-work state.

Calley was also involved in a daycare controversy that made national attention. On Sept. 11, 1999, the Michigan Department of Human Services was called after a woman living in Calley's district lodged a complaint that another woman was operating an illegal daycare in her home. The homeowner, who was not a licensed daycare provider, had been watching neighborhood children each morning before the school bus arrived. Calley introduced legislation that resolved the issue and differentiate between casual babysitting and operating a daycare facility. The woman said she received no compensation and only watched the children as a favor to their parents.

The legislation was signed into law on Nov. 20.
