  • Excerpt: "We must protect our State’s natural resources so that future generations can enjoy Michigan the way I have enjoyed it for decades"
  • Excerpt: "What we need to do in Lansing is to work on the generational poverty, instead of generation after generation of families living in poverty and never experiencing some of the successes we take for granted."
  • Excerpt: "I am also a Pro Life advocate. This is a personal belief as well as one that I follow in my faith. Life is sacred."
  • Excerpt: "I believe in the firearm rights established by the Constitution as well as State laws. I own firearms that I hunt with and have a Michigan concealed carry license."
