Michael Haire

  "I have lived in Blair County my whole life, the City for the past ten years with my wife and two sons.  I graduated from Hollidaysburg in 1995 and received a BA in Political Science and Sociology from Penn State in 2000.  I have been heavily involved with the Blair County Republican Party for the last 8 years.  I have been on Council for four years.  I have worked for Ollinger Bros. in Altoona for the last 12 years as Manager.  My focus has been on helping City government run well and helping to improve customer service. We need to remember that we serve the citizens of Altoona and are here to help citizens deal with City government so they do not feel lost in the process.  My vision is to be able to get out of Act 47 in the near future.  Also, I think the City needs to hire a few more employees so that we can provide better service within a reasonable time frame.  I would like to see continued growth both in new businesses and housing stock.  We as residents need to take ownership of our neighborhoods and our investments in our property.  As always the Council is available to you to help you with your concerns or needs."
