Born in Rhode Island in 1969, Mike has lived in Foster with his family for over a quarter century. Married to his high school sweetheart Sherri Lombari for 27 years, the couple have a 24 year old daughter Paige, a Registered Nurse, and a 21 year old son Seighin who is a professional heavy-equipment operator.

Mike owned two RI manufacturing businesses for over 15 years and has been a real estate investor since 1992. Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, and Representative Chippendale is intimately familiar with the regulatory and tax burdens that businesses in Rhode Island must deal with simply to survive.

Attended CCRI immediately after high school, then entered the Mechanical Engineering Program at New England Institute of Technology, receiving his degree in 1991. Mike re-entered college in 2004 at Johnson and Wales University studying business management.

The job of public service offers Representative Chippendale the opportunity to give back to his beloved community, while at the same time being positioned within the RI Legislature to affect positive change on the continual 'squeeze' being put on the average Rhode Islander. Perhaps they are trying to start a new business, grow their existing business or maybe just hoping to continue living in the state they love so much.
