Why I'm Running
My career has been about public service to improve the quality of life for the people of West Michigan and Muskegon. I work everyday understanding and solving the problems facing West Michigan whether it is in economic development, reducing poverty, restoring our environment, improving education or helping a constituent who is having trouble with their government.
We all recognize that we are at a critical point in the next chapter for Muskegon County. In the age of term limits, we need to elect representatives that can have an immediate impact for our area.
I have lead public policy efforts at the highest level in Washington, D.C. I have sat with employers who were on the verge of cutting jobs unless action was taken and delivered. I know what being your representative takes and will be ready from day one to serve you and deliver for our communities.
I ask for your vote on November 6, 2018.
