(comment from Michigan Messenger site)
Butzbaugh's father was law partners with former Berrien County Judge Chester Burns. Mr. Burns' wife is Priscella Upton-Burns, who, if I'm not mistaken, lives on Ridgway.
Interesting to note that David Upton and Judge Alfred Butzbaugh are business partners. A Law & Title entity (MI DLEG ID # 824077) maintains the ties between the Butzbaugh's and the Ridgeway gang. A mural of Mr. Burns is proudly displayed at the building co-owned by Butzbaugh, Upton et al, located at 811 Ship Street.
Ship Street Realty, who is currently selling Jean Klock Park land, is also located at 811 Ship Street. Department of Labor and Economic Growth (DLEG) documents show multiple and direct ties between Judge Butzbaugh, the Upton clan and a principle Jean Klock Park developer, Charles Ammeson.
Public Deeds, Private Title Companies, political assigns and developers all tightly connected.
