Winning for West Michigan

World-class Schools that Succeed
I’ve worked in the classroom, and seen firsthand how students and teachers struggle to do more with less. From K-12 to Michigan’s universities and skilled trades programs, your children deserve a world-class education that prepares them for a bright future.

Reinvesting in You
Grand Rapids families are frustrated. You work hard and play by the rules every day, and you deserve a State Senator who will do the same for you. I will help employees, entrepreneurs and businesses get the support they deserve, so that our area remains a leader in Michigan.

Fighting for Vets Off the Battlefield
Let’s fulfill our promise to care for the honorable men and women who put their lives on the line for us. We have the best medical facilities in the state, and it’s time to bring that care to our veterans homes. Under my watch, no one will be left behind at home.

Health care Shouldn’t Break the Bank
We live in an era of uncertainty when it comes to our health care. It’s time to end that uncertainty, and deliver the highest-quality health care at a fair price. You shouldn’t have to choose between saving for retirement or our children’s college fund and getting the care you need.
