I’m running for Congress because Fred Upton has sold out -- to the Tea Party, to extremist congressional leadership, to the far right political action committees and special interests that finance his campaigns and gain legislative favors.
After 26 years in office Upton has become part of the problem. He has little positive vision and is unable to work across the aisle on solutions to the serious challenges we face as a country.
We need a government that can build a great America for the 21st century. Here in SW Michigan that means high paying manufacturing jobs, small town and rural development, cost effective health care and outstanding education for all, and protection of the Great Lakes and our beautiful environment.
I offer vision, leadership, and a cooperative, problem-solving approach.
I’m grateful for enthusiastic support from Democrats, Independents, and Republicans -- including people who voted for Upton in the past but today are troubled by what is going on.
