|Info||Michael Norbert Switalski was born in Hamtramck, Michigan on January 11, 1955. He attended Sacred Heart School before graduating from Roseville High School in 1973, when he was voted Class Wit. He spent the rest of his life trying to draw the vital distinction between wit as opposed to class clown. He graduated from Louisiana State University in 1977 with a BA in Classical Languages and in 1981 earned an MA in History. His career as a professional student ended in 1982 with an M. Litt. in Politics from the University of Aberdeen in Scotland. |
In the early 80�s, he eked out a living as Sports Editor for the Utica Advisor and C&G Newspapers, and was a frequent contributor to the Detroit Free Press and stringer for Ernest Hemingway�s old paper, the Kansas City Star. His adventures as a newspaper baron reached full fruition when he began publishing The Insider in 1996.
Mr. Switalski served as the Chief of Labor Relations at the Detroit Arsenal Tank Plant during a decade of toil for General Dynamics from 1985-93. His political career began with his elevation to the Roseville City Council in 1989. He was elected Macomb County Commissioner in 1992 and Michigan State Representative in 1998. In 2002, Mr. Switalski was elected to the Michigan Senate, where he sits on the Appropriations Committee. He has coached championship soccer teams, first as skipper of the Roseville Rowdies in the mid�80�s, and then at the helm of the Roseville Yellowsnakes at the turn of the millennium, thanks largely to the skills of players like Sebastian Switalski and Liam Heaney Switaiski.
Mickey married Roma Heaney in Glasgow, Scotland in 1985, and the pair was blessed with a son, Liam, in 1993. They all live happily together in Roseville, Michigan.
