A man walked up to Robert Clingenpeel at a recent community event and declared, “Hello, Mr. Controller!”
Clingenpeel was quick to disabuse the man of the notion of that title.
“No, it’s just Bob,” he said. “I’m a papa, I’m a husband, I’m a father, I’m a taxpayer in Montcalm County. There’s a responsibility with that that supersedes even my job.”
