                      TRIBUTE TO ROBERT H. STEINER


                          HON. DAVID E. BONIOR

                              of michigan

                    in the house of representatives

                        Monday, October 21, 1996

  Mr. BONIOR. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to pay tribute to the treasurer 
of the charter township of Clinton, MI, Mr. Robert H. Steiner. After 33 
years of devoted service to the people of Clinton Township, Bob Steiner 
has decided to retire.
  For over three decades, the residents knew they could count on Bob 
Steiner to perform his responsibilities with professionalism and 
competence. In addition to his role as the township treasurer, Bob 
Steiner has served as a member of the Planning Commission for 9 years 
and as a township trustee for 4 terms of office. In his ongoing attempt 
to serve the public more ably, he has taken numerous other leadership 
  For example, Bob is currently the director of three groups vital to 
the well-being of everyone in the community: the Clinton Township 
Economic Development Corp., the Michigan Townships Association, and the 
Grosse Pointes Clinton Refuse Disposal Authority.
  The list of other organizations in which Bob has been involved, is 
simply too lengthy to include. But it is safe to say that if there was 
a concern raised in Clinton Township, Bob was responsive to it.
  His many civic responsibilities did not prevent him from devoting his 
time, energy, and talents to many community projects through volunteer 
work. Bob and his family have been active in their church and in the 
Clinton Valley and Chippewa Valley Kiwanis Clubs. He has worked on 
behalf of the Clinton Township Goodfellows organization and many 
school, academic, and sports activities.
  It was nearly 25 years ago that I first knocked on the Steiner door 
and met Bob and his wonderful wife, Alice. Since that time, Bob and I 
have enjoyed a close working relationship on local, State, and Federal 
issues. I have watched with respect as the township has grown under his 
steady leadership. The true measure of his commitment to the people of 
Clinton Township, is his son's similar interest in public service, 
obviously learned and nurtured at home.
  After 33 years of public service, I thank Bob for his fine work and 
commend him for his exceptional dedication and outstanding 
contributions. He will be missed by us all. We wish him the very best 
in the future as he enters a well-deserved retirement. As family and 
friends and associates gather on Friday, November 8, 1996, to honor Bob 
and Alice on
