We did it!
The race was officially called late Tuesday night, and I am excited to share with you that I will be the next State Representative for the 52nd district! Our success was made possible by our amazing team of staff, interns, volunteers, allies, and supporters. I cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for the campaign; I am forever grateful to each and every one of you for your tireless effort.
I look forward to serving all the residents of the 52nd District. As your future Representative, I promise that my door will always be open to you. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you might have about how I can better serve you.
Thanks for taking a minute to learn about my campaign!
For the past 14 years, it has been my privilege to represent the citizens of Saline as their mayor. I’ve worked locally, regionally, and statewide. I’ve talked with citizens across our state — and right here in our backyard — who want to see Michigan prosperous once again, and I have a plan to make that vision a reality for Michigan.
This doesn’t mean cutting our way to prosperity. Instead, we should be making strategic, long-term investments in the future health of our state. It means adequately preparing our children by investing in our education system — from pre-school to post-secondary. It means giving our state’s working families the support they need to make ends meet. It means protecting our natural resources so future generations can enjoy the pristine beauty we enjoy today. And it means making Michigan fertile ground for the next generation of businesses that are increasingly driving the 21st Century economy.
As the parent of three young adults, I am proud of the opportunities that growing up in Michigan has afforded our children. But I don’t just want them to remember Michigan as the nice place they grew up: I want them to remember Michigan as the exciting, vibrant place they chose to build their adult lives as well. To do that, we need ample and diverse career opportunities, but we also need to build strong communities with the high quality of life that makes us all proud to call Michigan home.
