Campaign themes


Forbes' website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]


  • Excerpt: "To put it simply, education is going to be my number one focus as your State Senator and I will work every single day to advocate for our schools and our students right here in West Michigan. "


  • Excerpt: "I'll work with our employers right here in West Michigan to enact the policies that will truly encourage job growth. It starts with creating a highly educated workforce that shows companies that there's no better place to invest in than here in Michigan."


  • Excerpt: "As a State Senator, I will work to reform our process for funding our roadways to guarantee reliable maintenance and modernization. Fair tax policies that fund our infrastructure systems without burdening citizens at the pump must be put in place, and the legislature must make roads and other infrastructure projects a priority. "


  • Excerpt: "I support fair tax policies that require corporations to pay their fair share and allow for economic growth for small businesses, individuals, and families. If elected, I am committed to working with my colleagues to craft a sensible tax plan for both individuals and businesses that will provide relief to working families while still ensuring Michigan’s economic growth. "

Environment and Energy

  • Excerpt: "As an elected official, I will seek to strengthen the ability of wildlife and environmental agencies to keep Michigan’s natural resources safe from ruin. I will work to keep our water supply free from harmful chemicals and invasive species, and will oppose any attempts to send it to other states. "
