Families are getting priced out of the healthcare they need to be well and work. People deserve to have their privacy respected, and should be trusted to make informed, responsible decisions with their healthcare provider. No one should ever have to choose between the medicine they need to live a healthy life and putting dinner on the table.
Everyone deserves access to quality, affordable health care. Instead of focusing on how to protect and expand affordable healthcare options, lowering prescription drug costs and protecting us, there is an effort in Lansing being made to actively limit Michiganders access to healthcare. We need elected officials to protect and expand Medicare, and stand up to the powerful lobbyist to ensure no one is forced into financial ruin because they can’t afford the necessary treatments, prescriptions or doctors visits they need to live a healthy life.
As a parent of a young child, I believe public education is the great equalizer in our society, the only way our children and our state will move forward is through education. As a candidate for State Representative, I am committed to protecting our children's education.
No company should operate at the expense of our children's’ education and using our taxpayer dollars to increase the their own profits. Public, private and charter schools should have the same commitment to transparency, and the same commitment to giving our children opportunities to succeed and the best education possible.
As your Representative I will be fighting to make sure our teachers and public schools have the support and funding they need to make a difference in our children's education, from Pre-K through post high school.
I support our 2nd Amendment, and I believe common-sense solutions can help decrease the escalating epidemic of gun violence that kills too many of our children and loved ones every day. That includes supporting red flag laws, eliminating the use of high-capacity magazines, and conducting complete criminal background checks on all gun purchases to make sure dangerous people don’t get access to dangerous weapons-- without infringing on the rights of responsible gun owners.
When I get to Lansing I will take action to ensure all of these common sense practices are put in place to protect our freedom to go to school and work without the fear of being fatally attacked.
Our roads are in perhaps the worst shape in the modern history of Michigan. Republicans have been in charge of the governor’s office and both chambers of the Legislature for seven years, and our roads are worse off. House Republicans passed a roads package in 2015 that raised taxes and fees for families but doesn’t come close to fixing the roads .Corporations weren’t ask to pay anything, yet still benefit from our investments. It’s time to make everyone pay their fair share.
