Meet Bill

Bill G. Schuette has deep local roots

Bill G. Schuette is a lifelong Midlander. Schuette attended Midland Public Schools K-12 and graduated from Dow High School. 

Bill was Class President and played on the Varsity Football and Track teams. He earned his B.S and M.A. with honors from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service.

Schuette then served as an Intelligence Officer for the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) where he worked as one of the agency’s leading counter-drug analysts and was sent to Mexico in support of U.S. Special Operations Command. In 2020, the DIA deployed Schuette to the Middle East in support of Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve, which was the U.S. military’s principal counter-ISIS force.

Following his support of our counter-terror forces, Schuette returned to Midland and worked on the Public Policy team of Dow, Inc., where he identified emerging geopolitical developments and their potential impact on the company’s business goals. 

Schuette now seeks to build on his experience with the DIA and Dow by fulfilling a lifelong call to public service as representative for the 95th district in the Michigan House of Representatives.

Schuette enjoys running, deer hunting and volunteering with the Dow High football team, his local church and the Midland Area Community Foundation.
