Brice outlines his legislative priorities on his official campaign website:
- Job Creation
Excerpt: "...make it simpler to establish businesses in Detroit and Hamtramck by eliminating roadblocks and through public-private partnerships with the State of Michigan, Detroit and Hamtramck to include workshops, management training and business start-up and capital incentives that provide entrepreneurial and job opportunities."
- Public Safety Response
Excerpt: "Currently, Detroit responds to 25-percent of the 911 calls within the national average of eight minutes. Through an incentive program using state revenue sharing as a base, I will propose legislation that is targeted to reward municipalities to respond within the national average or better."
- Academic Environment
Excerpt: "I will collaborate with other legislators and the governor to implement programs that improve the academic environment – safety programs in and around the school, facility improvements, after-school programs, and initiatives to involve parents and provide them the skills to assist their children’s learning."
- Senior Services
Excerpt: "I will fight to repeal the tax on pensions. I will also collaborate with other legislators and the governor for stricter punishment against people who impose crimes against citizens aged 65 and older."
Brice was a Democratic candidate for District 4 in the Michigan House of Representatives in the November 2, 2010 state legislative elections. Brice was defeated by Maureen Stapleton in the Democratic primary on August 3, 2010.
