    Vice Chairperson

    Jeff McCaul
    Starting with the City in 1998 as a field inspector for City road construction projects, I became a member of APAGR in 2000 as Construction Inspection Supervisor (Engineering), promoted to the Water Department as Hydraulic Engineer, and returned to Engineering as Assistant City Engineer overseeing construction projects, utility work in the public right-of-way, and the Sidewalk Division.
    The way of doing business at the City has drastically changed during the last decade.My reasons to continue working on our members’ behalf remain the same…to work with the best interests or our membership in mind, to maintain fair benefit levels, and to keep wages competitive.  During this current tough economic period that the City and all of us are facing, I remain committed to serving to the best of my ability.
          In addition to participating on the Contract Negotiation Committee, I am also a member of the Charter and By-Laws, Main Unit Grievance, and Newsletter Committees.


    Breese Stam
    I have been with the City Engineering Department since 1995 as a Project Design Engineer and now as a Senior Project Engineer in connection with many street and public utility projects. 
    In 2006, I was elected to the position of Secretary of the APAGR and continue to serve in that capacity today in addition to participating in a number of Committees including the Medicare Supplement Fund, the Main Unit Contract Negotiation Committee, the annual Golf Outing, Newsletter ,and Technology and Web Page Committees. 
    I also am current Chair of the Good and Welfare Committee which I believe is important since it provides a way to reach out to our members during life changing personal events like births, deaths and major illnesses and to recognize our members with Service Awards for their years of service to the City.


    Wayne Jernberg

    I started with the City of Grand Rapids as the Hydraulic Engineer for the Water System in 2006 and was promoted to my current position, Assistant Water System Manager in 2011.  I was elected to the APAGR Board in 2012 as a Representative and in 2013, volunteered to take on the role of APAGR Treasurer after a promotion left that position vacant.  In 2014, I was elected to the position of Treasurer by our membership and continue to serve in that role today.  In addition to the role of Treasurer, I am also active representing the unit at the Civil Service Board.


    Michelle Braate Slykhouse
    I have been with the City since 2000 and became an APAGR member in April 2008 when I was promoted to the position of  Administrative Analyst I working in the Parks and Recreation Department.

    During the last decade-plus working for the City, I have participated in many activities that have helped develop leadership skills and set me on a path where I chose to become actively involved in helping to meet the goals of and working for the benefit of all members in our unit. 

         As a Board member since 2011 and in addition to being Parliamentarian, I am working as a member of various committees including Charter and By-Laws, Main Unit Grievance, Health Benefits, and Medicare Supplement Fund.
