Friends, Neighbors, and Supporters,
After embarking on my campaign for State Representative over two years ago, the time has finally come to take office and do the job. Thanks to everyone for all the support. I am proud to have won a seven-way primary with over 43% of the vote and the general election with over 77% of the vote. I am humbled and excited by the tremendous support of the residents of Lansing and Lansing Township.
I have been sworn in and the Legislature has begun its work. As a Democrat, I am in the minority (but we did pick up an additional 5 seats in the last election!) as the Republicans have a 59-51 advantage. The Senate is controlled by the GOP with a 26-11 margin, and Governor Snyder is a Republican. So, the Democrats have limited ability to govern. That being said, I expect to use my extensive experience and relationships to get things done for Lansing, Lansing Township, and all of Michigan. Whether pushing good policy, working in a bi-partisan way on important legislation, or fighting against damaging legislation being pushed by the majority, I will be working day and night to do all I can in the two year term you have given me in the House of Representatives.
I plan to continue my Schor Blog and keep everyone informed about what we are doing. If you need to reach me about legislative issues, you can get me at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (517) 373-0826 or view my webpage at http://schor.housedems.com. If you need to reach me about campaign things, or want to contribute to my campaign, you can contact me at (517) 618-1666 or email me at email@example.com or go to www.andyschor.com.
Thanks again for everything!
