Michael’s life experiences have been diverse. He has served Everett as a City Councilor, City Clerk, Clerk of the Board of Aldermen, Clerk of the City Council, and a Registrar of Voters. He was an elected member of the Retirement Board and the Commonwealth, as well as a member of the staff of Governors William F. Weld and Paul Cellucci. He also spent decades as an entertainer. One of his bands, The Christopher Michael Band, and their song “You Make Me Happy” was recently featured on a CD entitled “Boston Goes Disco.” A second song, “Only Takes a Little While,” is being considered for inclusion on a CD of lost songs of the 70s. Considered by many as the “Unofficial City Historian” and an in-demand master of ceremonies, Michael is a self-described “history nut” who attributes his love of history to his father’s obsession with watching documentaries.
Michael and Denise continue to live in Everett and are the parents of Matthew, Gina, and Michael, the grandparents of Andrew, Valerie, and Renee, and the great-grandparents of Nicholas.
