Although the economic condition of Michigan is grave, I believe we can become the economic powerhouse we once were. The 83rd District and Michigan in general has abundant resources, fresh water, a skilled workforce, highly rated universities and a wealth of other positives. We the people of Michigan have the potential and the drive to be successful, we need to be allowed to move forward. I will work to promote an economic climate that attracts businesses and entrepreneurs through minimal regulations and low taxes, bringing job creation and prosperity back to Michigan.
