J. Michael Norton



Born in 1952 I moved to Holliston in 1958 and attended our school system from first grade through Graduation in 1970.  Thus, while not a native son, I was raised in the small rural town of Holliston.  Through the quality education received in the Holliston School system I was able to earn a nomination to the United States Naval Academy.  In 1970 during the Vietnam War, I received an education afforded by the United States government for the mission to become a Naval Officer.


Following my military service I returned to the area and began a career and a family life with a Holliston hometown girl.  While married I became the proud father of four daughters all of whom have college educations,  Three have advanced degrees, and all four are gainfully employed, happily married and parents. Thus making me a grandfather.


During my recent employment at Baystate Investment Advisors, a company that I founded in 1984, I was retained by a Holliston client that drew me into a substantial real estate development project.  That project allowed me to return to Holliston where I will hopefully culminate my career with a succesful conversion of a brownfield to sustainable green project while I contribute substantially to the economic development of the Town.

After my intensive high stress professional career I have decided to work in the career field of my life's desire. In the Fall of my Life I will experience the dream that I sought as a young man, that of a Sailor. Before I approach the sunset of my life I would like to Cruise the Eastern Coast of the United States. (See Sailing Resume Page)
