Citizens’ Voice for Property Owners (CIVPRO) Names Executive Director

February 23, 2009


Contact: Jack Hoogendyk


MIDLAND – Citizens’ Voice for Property Owners (CIVPRO) has named former State Representative, Jack Hoogendyk, of Kalamazoo its first Executive Director, effective January 19.

“As a limited-government conservative, this is the perfect opportunity for me,” said Hoogendyk. “Property owners in this state have seen their constitutional rights steadily eroded by aggressive state and local regulation. They need an advocate who will work with the legislature to craft good policy that protects their rights to responsible development of their land, whether it be a home owner, farmer, developer or someone trying to grow our important tourism business.”

CIVPRO is a statewide organization of interested or concerned individuals, businesses, industries and the public at-large. CIVPRO advocates for Michigan prosperity through the protection of property rights to help ensure job creation and growth. CIVPRO strongly supports improving Michigan’s regulatory climate to encourage business and industry expansion and to attract new business and industry.

Hoogendyk was also recently named Michigan Advisory Board Chair for Americans for Prosperity (AFP-MI), an organization of grassroots leaders who engage citizens in the name of limited government and free markets on the local, state and federal levels.
