"I am not a seasoned politician. I am a Second Amendment supporting, middle class mom, and wife
who has strong American values that align with Macomb County citizens. I know what hard work is
and what it means to "work hard & play hard", and that our tax dollars count. I know first-hand how important it is to earn legal immigration status. I also know how our economy is in need of hard working, young people who want to roll up their sleeves and work in the trades that keep our REAL infrastructure moving and thriving."
LIST OF ISSUES
LAKE ST.CLAIR WATER QUALITY
I have always been an avid boater. I remember boating on Lake St. Clair as a kid with my parents in their 18ft Century boat. When I first got married, my husband and I would rent a rowboat with a small outboard from Jimmy's Livery by the Clinton River Spillway, just to watch the sunsets on the lake. The quality of our Lake St. Clair is so important to our community. It saddens me when Metro beach closes for swimming on a hot Fourth of July weekend due to high levels of E.coli. For years, I have been paying attention to all the sewer infrastructure projects that Commissioner Candice Miller completed here in Macomb County. Nonetheless, the State of Michigan needs to do more. Oakland County needs to be held accountable and join Macomb County in the effort to preserve one of Michigan's best assets: Lake St. Clair.
SKILLED TRADE EDUCATION/ SUPPORT SMALL BUSINESS
My husband and I have always said our 18 year old son, Jager, is an "old soul". He was always outside riding his bike with friends and wrenching on various engines. He hardly ever watched television or played video games like a lot of his peers. Jager took a Heating and Cooling course his senior year of high school. He loved being introduced to the trades and is now working for a small HVAC business with clear sights of owning his own business one day. Luckily, Jager had a great teacher and mentor. The skilled trades need more recognition and there needs to be more
emphasis on hands-on education in our schools.
SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS
Although my husband was a police officer, I was never interested in going to the shooting range with him. Just a couple years ago, I decided to take a CPL class. I am happy to say that I am a proud CPL holder. It is my right! Furthermore, I have a couple of friends who collect large magazine weapons. As a law abiding couple, going to the range is one one of their favorite hobbies. I can't even imagine the day that our government attempts to take those weapons out of people's homes. I am unapologetically Pro Second Amendment and will always oppose legislation that would infringe on law-abiding gun owners. Give the government an inch and they will take a mile.
More attention needs to be given when it comes to mental illness, especially with our youth. In April 2022, we had a situation here in Harrison Township where a young man threatend to harm two teenagers in a parking lot. The 23 year old escaped from a behavioral center in Michigan and was re-captured a couple of days later. The lack of mental health resources in Michigan is a problem that we need to address.
Unsolicited absentee ballot applications should not be allowed in our elections. It should be common sense that only American citizens with a photo ID should be allowed to vote. I want to ensure that every vote is counted. Isn't that what everyone else should want, as well?
I am honored to be endorsed by Michigan Health Choice Alliance. Our Government should not mandate any type of medical treatment, especially if it is in the experimental phase. As more and more information unravels regarding Covid-19, people should have the CHOICE whether to get a vaccine or not. My 22 year old daughter, Sumer, was given an ultimatum at her university, "Get vaccinated or drop out of the Elementary Education Program." Immunity and treatments were never even mentioned. Furthermore, we are learning more adverse effects of the Covid-19 vaccination. We need to continue to protect our medical freedoms!
BACK THE BLUE
I am pleased to announce that I have been endorsed by the Police Officers Association of Michigan. The day in the life of a police officer has faced additional challenges over the years. As a matter of fact, officer recruitment and retention is today's biggest issue for our local and state law enforcement agencies. I will always support our men and women in blue to ensure they have the resources to keep our communities safe.
