Chuck Stadler was born in Mount Clemens, Mich., and resides in Vassar Township. He received a bachelor's degree in business and accounting from Delta College in 1978 and an associate degree as a licensed professional nurse in 1997 from St. Clair Community College.
He served from 1972 to 1975 in the U.S. Navy, attaining the rank of petty officer third class.
Stadler is a licensed residential and alterations contractor and co-owner of Stadler Bookkeeping Tax Service.
In 2008, Stadler was elected to a four-year term on the Vassar Township Board of Trustees.
Stadler and his wife, Cindy, have two adult children.
Chuck Stadler says on his campaign website that "we the people of the 10th District of Michigan need jobs" and that he would work to help create them if elected to Congress.
He faces incumbent Democratic Rep. Candice Miller in the November 2012 general election.
"Jobs is the number one thing on people's minds," he says. "Made in America. So many people without jobs. If jobs could be created it would make the economy better and improved."
Employment diversity also is important, according to Stadler, who lists jobs in manufacturing, high tech fields and construction among the district's needs.
He also believes the minimum wage should be raised to "a fair wage."
"There needs to be change in Washington," he says. "The incumbents have been there too long. There is too much partisanship."
Stadler views himself as a "go-between" who would bring compromise to both parties.
"I have many ideas on creating jobs and to start taking care of the Social Security problem," he says. "Under the next year budget, our government should include paying back the Social Security fund at rate of $100 billion a year. This action alone would not take care all the problems, but it's a start."
