Education

A good education is a necessary foundation to success. I believe every child deserves access to great schools and enrichment programs to prepare them for entering the workforce.

Livingston and Washtenaw Counties have a good public school model that should be replicated across the state - but our teachers deserve better.

Infrastructure

The solution to Michigan's infrastructure problem begins with good leadership. I am committed to finding and implementing the solutions for a resilient infrastructure. A fair tax distribution is necessary to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure and make Michigan a competitive player in the global economy.

Justice Reform

Locking up nonviolent offenders for minor infractions or for being unable to afford fines is a waste of money and lives.

Our criminal justice needs to be reformed to provide appropriate sentencing guidelines and effective rehabilitation for those imprisoned.

Environment

Michigan needs stronger, not weaker, environmental protections. I believe that the DEQ must focus on protecting our air and water rather than on promoting fracking and new pipelines.

Voting

Too few people vote in Michigan, especially in non-presidential years. I believe it should be made easier, not harder, to vote.  Restrictions on voting make it easier for Lansing to ignore our needs.

Fair Wages

Every hardworking employee deserves a fair and decent wage. Michigan’s minimum wage needs to be raised to ensure families are able to live without having to depend on government assistance.
