As we travel Michigan's Road to Recovery there are some changes that must be addressed before solid progress can be made. Among the top issues are:

o Make Michigan Business Friendly

o Control State Spending

o Fix State Government

See my Issues page for more information on how I plan to tackle the obstacles holding our state back.

My thanks to the Jackson County Commissioners who have endorsed me as their choice for the next State Representative for the 64th District. They join many other supporters who are encouraging me with their kind words, their time, their donations and their prayers.
