General: (political statement of goals, objectives, views, philosophies)
It's criminal what has been done to this state in the last 8 years. The last thing we should do is promote one of Jennifer Granholm's willing accomplices to the State Senate.

In the 8 years since I left Lansing, the liberal administration has made it more expensive to do business here while unemployment was rising, allowed property taxes to rise while people were losing their homes, and tried to make health care even more costly.

As a State Representative, I voted to cut taxes 31 times, we had the fastest growing job market in the nation, and a billion dollar surplus in our "rainy day fund." Now, under the current Administration, we have more government jobs in our state than manufacturing jobs. As a business owner, I have built a business despite the tax and regulate policies of this administration.

Liberal Lansing has failed. We need to get back to conservative values-living within our means, attracting employers to our state by cutting taxes, and bringing property taxes back down so our kids can afford to live here.

I invite you to take a look at my qualifications, vision, and values, and consider me for your next State Senator. I am running as a Republican for State Senate in Michigan's 31st Senate District, which covers everyone in Arenac, Bay, Huron, Sanilac, and Tuscola counties. I would be honored to have your vote in the August Primary and November General Elections.
