William J. Sowerby grew up in St. Clair Shores as one of five children. He attended St. Gertrude Elementary, then Lake Shore High School before graduating from Wayne State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree. Bill began his public service career in 1989 as a Macomb County Commissioner. There he represented Clinton Township residents until they elected him their Treasurer in November of 1996. Prior to assuming the full-time role as Treasurer for Clinton Township, Bill worked in the business community for 20 years.
In addition to performing his statutorial responsibilities as Treasurer, Mr. Sowerby is a member of the Township Board of Trustees where he has maintained a 100% attendance record over his eighteen years of service. He currently chairs the Township's Budget, Ways and Means Committee and sits on the Police & Fire Pension Board, the Refuse Committee, the Ambulance Committee and the 41B District Court Council.
Bill’s commitment to the community goes beyond his political duties. In 2000 he helped to establish the Annual Clinton Township Community Blood Drive, which remains one of the largest community-wide effort in southeast Michigan. He has served as the chair of this two-day, multiple location event since its inception. Bill also acts as a local coordinator for Green Michigan, a non-profit organization that seeks to keep the environment a priority in our township and county.
Bill Sowerby believes that ensuring the safety and well-being of the residents and businesses in Clinton Township must walk hand in hand with fiscal responsibility. He and his office staff are committed to providing accurate information and service to the public in a timely and courteous manner. Bill makes every effort to be available to anyone with concerns or questions regarding the township, be they a resident, business owner or employee.
