About Ron Clous

Ron Clous was elected to the Board of Commissioners in November 2020 for his fourth term with Grand Traverse County. Ron grew up in Kingsley where he continued his education through the 12th grade. Since then, he has been a self-employed owner of his construction company for the last forty-four years. Ron was introduced to politics through a friend and former commissioner who encouraged him to run for commissioner. What made Ron choose to run for commissioner was his desire for community service and an opportunity to help his community. 

Ron hopes to maintain the fiscally conservative path and represent the taxpayer throughout his term as commissioner. He is appointed as a commission rep to the Brownfield Authority, Building Code Board of Appeals, Land Bank, and represents four townships (Mayfield, Grant, Blair, and Green Lake). When Ron is not working for the residents of Grand Traverse County you can find him enjoying Northern Michigan through hunting and fishing. He also enjoys providing his property to the county youth to give them the opportunity to experience hunting.
