Public Affairs Director, Greater Detroit Area Health Council

Detroit, Michigan

Brian Love has been in professional politics for nearly 15 years. His focus began by conducting political campaigns on the local, state and federal levels in the state of Michigan. He has also managed and implemented community outreach operations for several legislators in the Michigan legislature.

After working for the Michigan Democratic Party as a political director and their base vote director during the 2004 presidential campaign, he began running constituent outreach programs for local campaigns for Michigan State Representatives and State Senators.

This experience led Brian to become Urban/ External Affairs Director for the Michigan House of Representatives in 2007. After completing this assignment in December 2010, he spent a year consulting and enjoying time with his family. In 2012, Brian became campaign manager for Congressman Gary Peters. After that victory, he became the Lobbyist/Outreach Director for StudentsFirst Michigan, a national education reform group and spent three and a half years lobbying and working in the community to empower teachers and parents.

His love for politics comes from the passion he learned from his great professors at Morehouse College as a Political Science major. He is married to his high school sweetheart, Lonita. He has a son, Jamario 18 and his daughter, Tori is 14.
