About the Author

Lifelong Michigander Bob Morris has spent his entire career involved in public service. He was a middle school teacher in the Detroit Public Schools before moving to Lansing in 1976 to work for the Michigan House of Representatives. For the next 38 years, he represented public institutions to the state legislature in the pursuit of setting good public policy for Michigan. He also worked for Gov. James Blanchard and the Michigan departments of transportation and education. During his time with the state, Bob fought for greater funding of Michigan's transportation infrastructure and tougher high school graduation standards, and promoted strong labor policies. In the 1990s, he was Assistant County Executive to County Executive Edward McNamara, where he was a key player in establishing the Wayne County Airport Authority Act. Bob ended his career as a policy advisor to the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments. He is retired and lives in Farmington Hills, Michigan, with his wife, Terry. He grew up in southeastern Michigan during the 1950s and 1960s at the knees of some of the greatest labor and political leaders in the state. He graduated from Birmingham Seaholm High School and earned a teaching degree and Masters in Public Administration degree from Western Michigan University. Bob wrote the nonfiction book, Built in Detroit: A story of the UAW, a Company and a Gangster, which was published in 2013. For more about Bob and that book, check out Books can be purchased at or
