Friends, Neighbors, and Supporters,
It was a privilege representing Lansing and Lansing Township in the Michigan House of Representatives my first term, and I’m excited for another two years of service to our community. This term I’ll be serving as Minority Vice Chair of the House Committee on Commerce and Trade, as a member of the House Education Committee, and as a member of the House Regulatory Reform Committee. I’m also serving as Vice-Chair of the Capitol Committee (a committee charged with overseeing work on our beautiful Capitol Building) and Finance Chair for the House Democratic Caucus.
During my first term I served on three House Committees: Ethics and Elections, Michigan Competitiveness, and Regulatory Reform. I was an Assistant Floor Leader and Chair of the Capitol Caucus– a group of mid-Michigan legislators who partner to advocate for the legislative and economic development issues affecting the region. I was also named to the House Democrats’ Education Task Force and the House Education’s Common Core Subcommittee. In my first year in the House, I was a finalist for Freshman of the Year. I proposed legislation dealing with blighted properties; charitable gaming; economic development; education (funding equality, school start date flexibility, truancy, year-round school and balanced school calendar incentives); elections (disability accessibility, term limits, and transparency); energy crisis assistance; fireworks; gun control, health care (Medicaid, bedbugs); safe sleep policies; student debt, and talent attraction and retention. I was able to pass two bills and several resolutions and was also the lead Democrat on the legislation to provide health care to 400,000 Michigan residents (Medicaid Expansion through the new Healthy Michigan program). I also passed several amendments, including one to save the City of Lansing almost a million dollars. I earned a number of recognitions during my first term, including awards from the Coalition Protecting Auto No-Fault, Fight Crime: Invest in Kids, and Michigan Works!.
There’s still more work to do, though. On top of growing our state’s support for education and continuing to support creative measures meant to attract and retain talent, I want to play a role in rehabilitating and revitalizing Michigan’s economy. I’m ready to continue tackling these and so many other issues important to our state.
