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!!
