A voice for the Western Upper Peninsula
We all care about similar issues - education, healthcare, the economy. We need a fighter who will make sure Lansing understands and includes your input in their decision making.
Economic recovery from the COVID19 pandemic is going to define the next two years in the state legislature. Funds will have to be made available to recuperate lost assets. It will by no means be easy. Difficult decisions will have to be made, and recipients will have to meet conditions to qualify for limited state resources. For instance, community colleges will have to commit to reigning in administrative costs and prioritizing teachers and learning resources, while businesses will have to prove their viability prior to the pandemic.
I know that my opportunities stem from the opportunities I had to receive an excellent education. Growing up on a dairy farm with no bath facilities but a sauna, Chassell High School provided me with the education I needed to go to MIT. As your rep I would fight to keep elementary, high school, and higher level education a priority in the western U.P.
