Michael Green BIO

I am Michael Green, a Memphis native and three-year resident of Lakeland.  A member of Brunswick Baptist Church, I serve on the church’s administration team.

My lovely wife Brigitt and I have been married for 25 years and have two beautiful daughters, Hailey, 19 and Emily, 15.

I am a graduate of Harding Academy of Memphis and have been a firefighter for the past 23 years. I currently work for the city of Memphis Fire Department, where I have been employed for the past 17 years. Prior to this, I worked for seven years on the Germantown Fire Department, serving on various committees – one of which helped bring the ambulance service to the city.

I have also owned my own landscaping business for over 20 years. When I am not working, my family and I enjoy time with our horses. This love helped us make the decision to move to the area, and we have participated in many rodeos and equestrian events all over the south.

Like Mike Cunningham and Richard Gonzales, I am passionate about our city.  I genuinely feel Lakeland needs servant leaders and good stewards of our tax dollars. I strongly support Mike’s philosophy that it’s time for a change in Lakeland’s leadership-leadership that will use the city’s resources responsibly and bring ALL of our citizens together.
