Name: Kevin Ford
Title: Shared Prosperity Coordinator
Department: Community Planning & Economic Development
Over three decades. Proud Eastside native!
It’s a superb quality of life for the cost of living. I also love the local cafés…I’m a coffee fiend.
I live currently in Oshtemo Township but I was raised on the Eastside of Kalamazoo Bridge St. & Riverview.
I have a B.A. in Political Science from WMU, currently finishing a Master’s at WMU in Public Administration with a concentration in Local Government. The bulk of my adult work experience was at Covance Research Products, a drug development company.
Most pressing right now is developing and finalizing the Shared Prosperity Kalamazoo (SPK) plan. Other than that, all things dedicated to creating abundant opportunities in our neighborhoods around strong families, good jobs, and healthy growth, development, and learning of children!
CHESS (yes...all caps because I’m that excited about it)
Watching stand-up comedy
I don’t know much about animals so it’s difficult to say. I would probably be a mixture of types of animals…adaptability of a chameleon and the oddness of a platypus.
