Former candidate for
Michigan House of Representatives, District 82
Campaign website
Jacob Hunsanger was a 2014 Republican candidate for District 82 of the Michigan House of Representatives.[1]


Campaign themes


Hunsanger's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]


  • Excerpt: "As State Representative I would do everything I could to promote small businesses, manufacturing and agriculture in the county. I would vote against any regulations that would prevent jobs and obstruct economic growth in our county."


  • Excerpt: "As the grandson of a dairy farmer, I understand the farming community, how vital they and their work is, and the support they deserve for their contributions to the rest of us. As they say, no farms means no food."


  • Excerpt: "Through promoting good business relations and practicing, along with the I-69 Trade Corridor and other resources, Lapeer County’s manufacturing industry is set to grow and thrive with the right leadership. Making Lapeer County more attractive to businesses comes back to the issue of create more good jobs for local residents."


  • Excerpt: "I would fight in Lansing to promote educational opportunities for Lapeer County students – through great programs like those at the Education and Technology Center – and that teachers and school staff are fairly compensated for their work teaching the next generation of Lapeer County citizens."


  • Excerpt: "As a staunch conservative, I would do everything in my power as State Representative to ensure that taxpayers’ money is not being wasted in bureaucracy, frivolous spending or other waste. Instead of spending more and taxing more, there needs to be balanced budget plan for Michigan and Lapeer County – not just for today but for years to come."
