On The Issues

Education
She’s well known in the Grand Rapids Public Schools and Grand Rapids Christian School Association where she got to know students on a personal level, empowering them as they built confidence and took on new challenges.

Business
She’s worked with entrepreneurs and businesses to develop and retain employees, leveraging the best resources of nonprofits, businesses and government to help our community continue to prosper.

Healthcare
She’s led the charge in the Michigan State House of Representatives to lower the cost of health care while still ensuring top-notch care.

Why This Race Is Important

Due to partisan gerrymandering, Republicans hold a drastically unfair advantage and are over-represented in the Michigan state legislature. It’s critical for Democrats to win seats and make blue inroads before the 2021 redistricting.


Sister District Policy Scorecard

This candidate has pledged commitment to the following statements:

  • We must protect a woman’s right to choose the health care and reproductive services she wants and needs.
  • We need to protect and expand our social safety net, not dismantle it.
  • We should pursue common-sense gun safety policies, consistent with the Second Amendment and local community standards and needs, which vary from community to community.
  • Climate change is real and we need to protect our environment.
