New Progressive Leadership to Move OUR District Forward
I was born in the 4th Congressional District at the Midland Hospital. My Dad was an oil driller and worked on many of the wells in the area. I grew up in Harrison, Michigan and had a successful business career for Nabisco Inc. in the 4th District from 1980 to 1992. I graduated from Harrison High School, I later earned my B.S. in Business Education, Physical Education, and Biology from Central Michigan University. I also earned my MBA from the University of Michigan – Flint and a MA in Sports Administration from Central Michigan University.
I taught at public schools in Whittemore-Prescott, Flint and Centreville, Virginia. I also taught economics and business at Mid-Michigan Community College as well as Lansing Community College, before suspending my teaching duties to do my best to truly represent OUR 4th District’s voice.
I believe in progressive ideals; of course, we need Medicare for all. We need to take advantage of the many resources we have in OUR 4th District, who wouldn’t want to live here? We have the Great Lakes, beautiful inland lakes, forests, wildlife, and rivers. We have an underused yet hardworking workforce, empty factories, inexpensive land, and a younger generation that is lacking the opportunities it deserves. Utilizing all of these resources could produce a bright future for all of us regardless of age, party, race, religion, class, or any personal lifestyle choices. Therefore, I have been to over 150 political events and meetings since February 2017 to listen, talk, and learn about the concerns of the people of OUR 4th District. Including all county Democratic Party organizations, several Indivisible and progressive groups in the area.
