John Chirkun is a 2014 Democratic candidate for District 22 of the Michigan House of Representatives.[1][2]


Campaign themes


Chirkun's website highlights the following campaign themes:[3]

  • Excerpt: "Increasing taxes in middle class families, taxing retirement income, cutting funding for our public schools, neglecting our roads and public infrastructure, attacking the rights of working men and woman and cutting much-needed revenue sharing that funds our local police and fire services is the wrong policy for Michigan. I will work to reverse these misguided policies. We must invest in our citizens and our future. I believe that we need to properly invest in our children’s futures by making the funding of K-12 and higher education a priority when it comes to spending. This is essential in preparing Michigan’s residents to compete in today’s globalized economy where innovation is critical. We must also invest in our communities so they can keep our community safe and a place where families want to live in."
