Big money in our politics is standing in the way of progress being made on the issues that matter most to Michigan’s working families. Whether it’s skyrocketing prescription drug costs, addressing the impacts of climate change, or investing in our nation’s crumbling infrastructure, our country is facing massive threats to our economic security and the future of our families. Instead of producing results, the politics and partisanship of Washington are making matters worse instead of better because too many politicians in Washington answer to the corporate interests that fund their re-election campaigns instead of the people who live in their Districts.
It’s time we fix the corrupt system in Washington and put people and community back at the center of our decisions, which is why I’m running to represent Michigan in the U.S. Congress.
As a State Representative, I have a record of fighting to enact non-partisan redistricting, improving transparency and ethics in Michigan, and reducing the amount of money in politics. In 2017, I was proud to introduce the Voters Bill of Rights in the Michigan Legislature, a similar version of which became Proposal 3 and ushered in a new era of pro-voter laws in the state. If elected to Congress, one of my first priorities will be reforming our politics to fight corruption, end dark money, and protect the right to vote.
