Trustee Michael Holub

Committed to Expecting Better for Makanda Township

In 1991, I was single, no children, and fresh out of Dental School. I relocated my life from Chicago, IL to open a corporate dental practice in Carbondale, IL. I was 27 years old, tired of city life, and yearning to find MY place.....well I was Southern Illinois.  In 1994, I bought a home and some land in Makanda, IL, and have happily and peacefully lived here ever since. 


I left the corporate practice, after 7 years,  and opened my own private practice in Chester, IL.  I sold that practice 4 years ago, after 20 successful years, and am now proudly the Dental Director at Rural Health, Inc. in Anna, IL.


Over the years, I built a life in Makanda. I have two wonderful children, both graduates of Unity Point and CCHS. Cultivating family life in Makanda has been very serving. I have raised two balanced, happy, and hard-working daughters who have matured to become good, just, contributing citizens.


In our free time, my daughters and I enjoy hiking the trails of southern Illinois, golf, poker and running. It is not uncommon to find us enjoying ice cream on the boardwalk on any given weekend.


If elected Makanda Township Trustee, I will bring an open mind to governing our township, with the goal of offering transparency and accountability so the constituents of the township understand how their tax dollars are being allocated.
