David Lawrence Malhalab (b. 1950) was a 2014 Republican candidate for District 11 of the Michigan House of Representatives.[1]


Campaign themes


In a biographical submission to Ballotpedia, Malhalab highlighted the following campaign themes:

Roads: Michigan needs to increase taxes to fix the roads and bridges- raise the sales tax, fuel tax and fees on overweight trucks (the trucking industry should not dictate to legislators { with money}, We need to hold the Asphalt Concrete Consortium accountable too. We also have to fix ...sewers, power grids etc too...

Prop A: I am not an expert in Education...We have some of the best universities and educational leaders in the country. We must sit down with them and find a real solution. Foreign countries better educate their children than we do - we must match their efforts. I favor full year education. I was a Fairlane District School Board member and I ran on the platform of merging our District with Dearborn School District...and I won and we merged ( six months) - to the better education of both Districts children.

Issues: Senior Citizens need better services - now and in the future and we must prepare...We need to deliver better core services - we must prioritize now and deliver....infrastructure fixes - we must find a way to fix problems now to save money in the future....Voter Apathy - we have to get voters more active in voting and in making their talents available to local, state and federal governments to improve the quality of elected officials and the quality of life issues.

Best Candidate: Because, I will not be afraid of special interests over the interests of 11th District residents and state residents....I don't intend to become rich from public service...

Ps.. I favor common sense gun control (fix 'open carry laws' - more education and training for CPL licenses)...I favor a woman's right to abortion (her decision with her doctor - not mine or yours)...spending tax dollars for there intended purposes...better campaign finance laws - disclosure and limits on special interest monies....[2][3]
