Listening & Leading
Why I am running:
I am excited to announce my candidacy for re-election to the Michigan House of Representatives in 2020!
Quite simply, I am running to continue producing results for the hard-working residents of Jackson County. I worked together with Republicans and Democrats to achieve major reforms and while we have accomplished a lot, there is much more work to do to fix government and help hard-working people get ahead.
My focus is clear – protect the health and safety of families, lower the cost of living and help workers keep more of their paycheck.
After decades of a rigged system that forced us to pay the highest rates in the country for car insurance, Michigan drivers will now be able to choose the right amount of coverage that’s best for their household budget.
When it comes to fixing roads, we are funding road repairs at record high levels and we are doing it without the governor’s crushing 45-cent gas tax increase. We can continue to fix our roads by prioritizing the money already in the state government budget instead of treating taxpayers like an ATM.
As a mom and former teacher, investing in education is another priority of mine. We also continue funding local classrooms at an historic amount, and we remain committed to increasing skilled trades opportunities so our students are prepared for success in a career and in life.
Since taking office in 2017, I have stayed accessible by holding monthly local office hours and meeting face-to-face with residents. I believe elected officials should work just as hard as the people they represent. That is why I have done my best to remain accessible in order to listen to residents’ concerns and help find solutions. I also believe it is important to follow through and do what you say you will do.
I’ll continue to stand by my principles and lead with common sense. Looking forward, my legislative priorities include investing in education, fixing roads without a gas tax increase, strengthening health care and increasing government accountability.
I won't stop until we get it done.
