Michael A. Lammers

Michael A. Lammers grew-up in Miller City, he and his wife, Diane, are both life-long residents of Putnam County. Together they are local business owners of Log On Computers, proud parents and devoted grandparents who are dedicated to serving you and our County to keep it a special place to live, work, and raise a family. His extensive experience and background includes building and operating an Information Technology business for over 30 years. Owning a successful business requires future vision, adaptability to change, close management, operating within a strict budget to control costs and providing customers with excellent service. These are the same qualities needed to operate an efficient government that serves the best interests of the people and protects their welfare and freedoms. Every aspect of government must be managed properly to prevent waste and over-taxation.
