Why am I running?
I'm running for this particular office because I have been personally negatively affected by State policies. I feel that my experiences and education give me a unique opportunity to bring positive change to my home district, and to my State. I have always been driven to public service, it's in my nature to want to help people. They say if you want to serve your community to do what you know, what I know is good policy.
Bring jobs back to Michigan by stopping regressive tax policies
Restore funding levels for k-12 and Post secondary education to pre-Snyder levels.
My DFA Values
This legacy campaign is missing this information
My Campaign is People Powered!
1.)All of my volunteers are doing this in their spare time, even though canvassing work can be challenging, people are excited to listen to what I have to say and are volunteering their time to help me bring my unique experiences with me to Lansing.
2.)All of my donations from the community has come from small donations under $5, I'm more interested in recieving a voters opinions, thoughts and idea's rather than their money. Though I'm not allergic to funding, I feel that in a democracy it's the candidate with the most votes who wins elections, not the most money.
