My Positions

STRONGLY SUPPORT
S+

Criminal Justice Reform

“Michigan has a serious people in cages problem. The state spends 1 in every 5 general fund tax dollars on imprisoning people while places in our state have poisoned water and our roads suck. We incarcerate people at a rate that is about 31% higher than other states in the Midwest. This is simply unacceptable and my criminal justice reform plan can help address this. ”

STRONGLY SUPPORT
S+

LGBT Rights

“I support the LGBT community's right to societal equality in all spheres including marriage, bathroom use, adoption, and more. I oppose all prejudicial legislation targeting the LGBT community. The state has no business in the peaceful personal affairs of others. ”
