Charlevoix, Dean Martin

Dean Martin is the CEDAM Fellow for the City of Charlevoix. He received his Master of Public Policy in 2019 and his B.A. in Political Science in 2018, both from Michigan State University. Dean’s passion for public service began at the age of 14, when he first started working at Independence Township Parks, Recreation and Seniors. Since then, he has gained a variety of experience, securing positions with the Community Development Advocates of Detroit, the Institute for Public Policy and Social Research, and the City of Detroit. Dean’s interests include community development, program evaluation, public finance, and land use policy. Dean is excited to assist the staff of Charlevoix in creating social and economic opportunities for residents and businesses.

After clocking out, one can typically find Dean reading a weathered paperback in the woods or trying his hardest to cook a halfway decent meal.
