The most important factor in each community is its people. As of January, retirees had a tax imposed on their pensions. For some, they are deciding between food or their medication. For others, this means less money going into the economy as they have less money to spend on activities outside the home. As your next State Representative, I will fight to repeal this pension tax.
Viable communities are safe places to live and we must ensure they maintain their fire and police departments to keep our communities safe. Our district has wonderful parks. Many areas in Commerce Twp., West Bloomfield Twp., Wixom, and the Village of Wolverine Lake have been making strides for pathways for safe for walking and bike riding. Policies for responsible development for our future are important so that we may continue to enjoy these wonderful communities so that they will be here for generations to come. For instance, Wixom has a Sustainable Community Cycle 2025 plan, Commerce Township with its draft of a Five-Year Recreation Master Plan, West Bloomfield Township with its Economic Development Plan, and the Village of Wolverine Lake, all looking to looking to the future, keeping their community a wonderful place to live and raise a family.
