I will protect Michigan workers.
I am extremely proud of the fact that my father put in 48 years at the Ford Motor Company and I myself am a proud member of the International Association of Firefighters Local 1557. The union to which I belong is my second family and allowed me to give my two children a college education and the promise of a middle class life. The unions in Michigan and around the country have allowed workers to provide the American dream to future generations. To break that promise in this state is to destroy Michigan's middle class. As your state representative I will fight to keep collective bargaining rights for our workers, support access to affordable health care and help families keep food on the table.
