"I believe in empowering the people of Michigan. We do this by having a government that is fiscally responsible, restores our infrastructure, and returns to fundamental educational practices. We need good decision makers in Lansing, and representatives that can get the tough jobs done. I know how government works and why it often doesn't, which is why I’m running for State Representative—to make government work better for you. I look forward to earning your trust, your confidence, and your vote. Thank you for your support…De Opresso Liber."
