Why I'm Running
I am a woman who cares deeply about other people. I have a passion to serve, to make the world a better place. The past two years have been a disaster for the middle class and for the workers and families. I want to take my passion for service to Lansing for the people of this area and make the 98th a better place to live for everyone.
My top concerns are:
Jobs – Full time jobs, jobs with better minimum wages, job training for high school and those out of work. I believe that we can accomplish much by working together as a region to draw new businesses here to the Bay-Midland-Saginaw area. We have a lot to offer businesses of all kinds and we have dedicated people who are willing to work hard together to make regional success a reality.
Education – Pre-K through College (ways to reduce college debt burden), restore funding to public schools, oversight for charter schools, vocational training for high school and college age kids, as well as for adults who have been out of work and are seeking new ways to earn a living.
Roads - our roads and bridges are a mess. The need is drastic when it will cost $1.2 billion simply to MAINTAIN what we have now. How can we attract new business or tourists to our state with roads and bridges that are downright dangerous?
Join me in my campaign to win the 98th! I need your help to make a victory a reality!
