Get to know me!

My name is Samuel Franklin Cronkhite and I was born and raised right here in northern Michigan . I grew up 11 mile from here in Cadillac with a brother and three sisters. My wife Janet grew up here in Manton and this is where we raise our kids. We also have two beautiful grandchildren.  The kids and grandkids are the love of our lives and we are very proud of them.

I received my education at the Wexford Missaukee Career Tech Center where I learned a trade in machine work,   fabricating and welding.

I have spent over 25 years in the industry and the last 15 plus years running my own small business, All Ways Welding.                    

Some of you folks have seen me play music in the park which  I enjoy very much! I've been playing guitar for longer then I can remember.  We spent a lot of time at church where my Mom and Dad played music and us kids were always involved.

Giving back to the community has always been a part of my life.  I am a lion club member,  the president of the Manton Area  Chamber of Commerce , and I am a Mason with  Cadillac Clam Lake lodge #331. I am an advisory board member at  the Wexford County Career Tech  Center in the welding and fabrication program which I support wholeheartedly. I enjoyed two years as a commissioner of our fine city and it was a great experience.

As part of the team in the city office,  we have rebuilt our infrastructure  and put forth good effort to help our citizens keep up on maintenance with free dump days,  yard waste pick up and grants for repainting homes (nice work Jess!) while  maintaining a fiscal responsibility to our taxpayers. Our streets and parks are looking fantastic and as a commission we are working toward new ordinances that will further create jobs and opportunities for our citizens,  friends and neighbors.

I truly am proud to be your Mayor and greatly appreciate your support.

 Sam Cronkhite

Mayor of Manton

Serving The Community

I have served Manton as a commissioner for two years. Giving back to this community is a rewarding experience that I enjoy very much! I stay very active with our chamber as its president and will give the office of Mayor the same motivated leadership! 

WE can get this done Together!

United By A Common Goal

  • Our team in the city office share a common goal to make Manton the best it can be for its citizens! A clean, comfortable and safe place to live, work and raise our kids!

Get Involved

  • The best way I can think of to get involved is to keep talking to each other! Let your city officials  and its workers know you support their efforts to keep Manton as great as possible! Our city meeting is the 3rd Tuesday of the month and everyone is welcome!
