Why are you running for office?
I care about every person in MI09, and the United States. I care about my community. I decided to run for office first after becoming a father. I want my son, and every child in America to have an equal opportunity to everything this country offers. I care about rural and working-class portions of Michigan. I care about the damage Donald Trump, and his dangerous politics have caused in my district, and throughout America. I want to help my district heal. I was also a former Democratic Candidate for the Michigan State Board of Education.
What are the three biggest issues facing your community?
I would say, healthcare, protection of fundamental rights, and public Education.
How do you propose to solve those problems?
I will always fight for better access to healthcare, I am a fighter for Fundamental rights, and will codify these rights through Legislation. I will fight to improve public education in the district and provide access to community colleges tuition free.
What is your stance on environmental and climate concerns that are facing your community?
I will support the green new deal, push to get more electric cars on the road to reduce carbon emissions, and fight the fossil fuel industry from further damaging our environment.
What commonsense gun safety measures would have the most impact on your community?
I think basic background checks, reforms on getting military style assault weapons off the streets, and fighting things like Ghost Guns, that my GOP incumbent opponent drafted a resolution supporting.
How would criminal justice reforms impact your community?
I believe criminal justice reform starting at the hiring practices of police departments, I would like a national standard of hiring police officers throughout America.
How would you work to protect a woman’s reproductive health?
I am a pro-choice candidate, and work vote to codify Roe into law, through legislation.
What measures would you advocate to ensure that your constituents have the right to vote?
I would fight against voter suppression laws, including voter ID laws, designed to target those in low income, and marinized groups throughout America.
