Issues & Policy


Police officers and firefighters are vitally important to keeping families and communities safe. In Clinton and Gratiot counties, we love and respect our local law enforcement agencies!

I have respect and gratitude for those officers and first responders who put their lives on the line. I will work to support law enforcement at the legislative level, ensuring they have proper resources to successfully carry out their duties. These men and women make daily sacrifices and deserve our support.


I am unabashedly Pro-Life and will work to protect children, both born and unborn, as a State Representative. I am proud to support my local Right to Life affiliate and believe strongly in the power of the grassroots Pro-Life movement. Abortion numbers in Michigan are steadily dropping thanks to the work of Pro-Life activists and legislators. Let’s keep that momentum going!


Michigan has disproportionately high auto insurance rates. It’s time to reform the no-fault system that has caused these high rates. Michigan citizens deserve to keep more of their hard-earned wages.


The importance of Agriculture and the dairy industry in Clinton and Gratiot Counties cannot be understated. Michigan must support farmers, whether by building better roads for farm vehicles or protecting farms from unnecessary over-regulation. I will be a proponent of educating the public about the importance of farming. The great produce we get at our local grocery stories comes from the hard work and fields of our local farmers in Mid-Michigan.

Michigan also needs to concentrate on boosting the skilled trades. This state needs to use its available resources to invest in skilled trades materials for schools. We need to carve out an education path for high school kids interested in skilled trades. And don’t forget that the Agriculture industry needs skilled trades workers too!


Owning a firearm is your constitutional right. Citizens in Clinton County and Gratiot County love their firearms; I’ll fight for their constitutional right to carry and enjoy these guns. Like many of you, I enjoy hunting in this beautiful state.


As an Assistant Attorney General, I see first-hand that Michigan has a serious issue with prescription drug abuse. We need to fight this battle at every level, working with health professionals, law enforcement, and patients to stop this epidemic. Everyone has been affected by a family member or friend addicted to prescription drugs. I will work on policies that help stop this cycle of addiction.
