I'm in!

I'm running for Kent County Commissioner in 2018 - but I'm not in this for myself.


I'm in this for the more than 30,000 people who live in this district.


I'm in it for my fellow low income residents, who haven’t felt Michigan’s supposed ‘comeback.’


I'm in this for my fellow young people. We are not just the future of our community - we are the present.


I'm in this for our veterans, to whom I owe so much.


I'm in this for those who depend on the vital services that the County provides.


I'm in this because I must use my privilege to speak out for the rights of those who don't look like me.


I’m in this because I know what it’s like to be excluded - and no one should ever be excluded from the work of our government. After all, it is our government.


I bring to this race a unique background:

  • Nearly 30 years as a resident of the 12th District.
  • A record of accomplishments.
  • Extensive involvement in our community.
  • A working-class background.
  • A first-hand understanding of the challenges residents face.

If you live in the 12th District (which includes parts of western Kentwood and eastern Wyoming), I hope that I can earn your vote in the August 7 primary election. In the meantime, please feel free to contact me with your thoughts and ideas.
