This Is Who I Am

“While serving as a State Representative for six years I passed laws that helped Wayne County’s middle class. Public service is my life’s calling, so when I left the legislature I went to serve at MDOT. At MDOT I brought everyday people together from all walks of life to create a plan that fixes our crumbling roads and grows public transit from Detroit to Romulus. Now as a Businesswoman, I’m leading the charge at my company to put more than 3000 people from Wayne County to work in good paying jobs. No matter where I’ve served- I’ve always fought hard to improve the lives of middle class families and by God’s grace I’ve succeeded every time. I’ll fight even harder for us in Congress and I won’t hesitate to stand up to Trump!”

I’m Running For Us

I’m running for Congress because nearly fifty-percent of workers in Wayne County can’t afford basic necessities for their children after a forty-hour work week. That number is even higher among working Detroiters. In Wayne County we’ve gone from putting America on wheels, to needing Meals on Wheels- just to survive in many instances. No matter your gender, age or race, these are sad and unprecedented times for working people across the county. I’ll fight hard to get the federal resources we need to fix this now, because my daughter Blake, your children and every child in Wayne County deserves a Bright Future!

I was born and raised in Northwest Detroit and Western Wayne County has always been my home. Our community is strong but we’re hurting. Now more than ever, we’ve got to have a voice in Congress that actually lives in the 13th district. Our Congresswoman must know our day-to-day struggles firsthand-because she’s living them too. The time for electing leaders based on family legacy, name-recognition or the ability to rouse a crowd is over.

The 13th Congressional District deserves an experienced policymaker who is savvy enough to navigate the Republican- led Congress and capable of securing the resources that we need to change lives here at home. As a State Representative, I created and passed strong laws that produced tangible results in Michigan. In the private sector I’ve led the charge at my company to invest millions into Detroit and Romulus- helping put hundreds of everyday people to work in good paying jobs.

We need a Congresswoman with the energy, courage and strategic ability to effectively fight the Trump agenda; a woman who will clearly and unabashedly speak truth to power. I’m equipped and I’m ready to serve!

With your support, I will carry the voice of everyday Michigander’s to the halls of the United States Congress. When We Stand Together Nothing Can Stop Us And Our Future Is Bright!!

Shanelle is Detroit‘s Daughter

With a heart dedicated to improving the lives of “everyday people,” Shanelle Jackson considers herself a true Daughter of Detroit. She has committed her life to serving the people in the city and county she loves by striving to make them great places to live, work and raise a family.

Early Years

The eldest of three children, Shanelle was born in Detroit, the first child of Forrest and Jasmine Jackson. Forrest worked as an assemblyman at G.M. and Jasmine still works for the United States Postal Service. When Shanelle was eighteen months old, her father died of a heart attack, leaving his pregnant wife Jasmine and baby daughter to grieve. He was only twenty-nine years old. From then on Shanelle experienced firsthand the struggles that single parents face daily. Watching her mother overcome challenges taught her the value of education, the importance of hard work and tenacity.

Shanelle credits her mother, Jasmine with cultivating her tireless work ethic and drive. Jasmine was determined to not allow her children’s lives to be defined by loss and sadness. Instead, victory and overcoming would be their story. Jasmine regularly worked long hours to provide for her family and fought tooth and nail to make sure her children received a quality education.

A Love of Community

An avid Girl Scout in Troop 1600, at Fellowship Chapel Church- under the leadership of Rev. Wendell Anthony, Shanelle learned the true characteristics of a “leader-servant.” It was in Troop 1600 that Shanelle began serving her community through helping to organize neighborhood clean-up projects, peer tutoring, distributing Christmas baskets and feeding the homeless.
