Joe Bellino has been a lifelong resident and community leader of Monroe County, from growing up here in the 60's and 70's to representing it now. Joe owned and operated Broadway Market on Monroe Street for over 18 years, but recently sold it to spend more time with his family. He is married to Margaret Bellino and they have three daughters and three grand-kids. Before buying Broadway Market, Joe worked at Bellino's Quality Beverage, The Society of St. Vincent DePaul in Detroit, and Joe Lake Tire and Auto. The experience of working at Joe Lake Tire and Auto gave Joe Bellino the experience he needed to buy Broadway Market. In 2016 Joe ran for State Representative due to the inactivity that he saw from his current representation.
Joe knows how hard work pays off, from growing up in a 25'x25' cabin in Detroit Beach, to owning and operating a successful "party store", Joe has worked everyday to for the betterment of his family and his community. It hasn't always been easy, Joe has struggled with addiction in his life and it almost cost him everything. Joe has been clean over 30 years now and as an addict in recovery, he brings a unique outlook to the problems that southeast Michigan is experiencing.
