Michael Grover Coltharp II is a 3rd generation California native. He grew up in a trailer park in South San Francisco, CA. His father was a shoe salesman and a bus driver. His mother raised 5 children.
Grover started working at Oyster Point Marina, in South San Francisco, at the age of 15. Before that, he was washing buses and limos at his father’s work. Grover was taught the value of work through his religious upbringing and the example of his father.
Grover had a dream to be a police officer. At age 18, he joined the Police Explorer Post to learn about a law enforcement career. He was a long-haul truck driver while waiting for an opportunity to get hired from a police department. When he was 23 years old, he turned that dream into a reality. He was a police officer until 2016. Grover was the founder of several businesses throughout the years. He experienced business failure and learned from each experience. He moved to Roseville in 2000 to raise his five children and they still live in Roseville.
His current business is an insurance brokerage in Roseville, which is still growing. His specialty is assisting clients to use the tax laws to save taxes during retirement and in their businesses. It is not just the wealthy who utilize these tax laws. This is unique because, most political hopefuls usually have experience “taxing citizens” through their prior political positions.
Grover loves his country and his home state. He wants to participate in solutions; not the problem. This is why he decided to participate in the recall for Governor Newsom. This process lead to running to replace Governor Newsom. We need a non-career politician and a non-wealthy elite to represent the working class, small business owners and the wealthy to create an environment of unity in this state to grow our economy.
When the recall is complete, there will be a special election. Well, there should be a California patriot and friend of California to select who loves this state and is willing to sacrifice to do this. Grover wants to be “that guy.” He wants to be the guy who stands up for all Californians and ensures equality for all. He will listen to the voice of the people who vote and not override them. He wants to be the guy who stands up for the small business owners. He wants to be that guy who stands up for every citizen in every city in this great state of California.
