The Flint Water Crisis was caused by members of both the Democrat and Republican parties. The people of Flint must be made whole and those who caused the crisis must be brought to justice.
For too long, the children of Michigan have been left behind in public education due to continued cuts to public education and the vilification of teachers in our state. The state must properly fund K-12 education, and we need to make public colleges and universities free to any Michigander who wants to further their education.
Infrastructure & Roads
Infrastructure across Michigan including water & sewer pipes, oil & gas pipelines, and our roads & bridges have been left to disrepair for too long. There must be a long-term plan and budget for continuous infrastructure improvement going forward including for technology.
As the Great Lakes State, we are the main steward of the planet's largest source of fresh water. We should not be giving it away to the lowest bidder, and we should not be allowing companies that pollute our waterways to be free from the costs of the health and environmental damage that they cause.
Legalization of marijuana will bring additional revenue to the state budget to help fix our roads, properly fund public education, and much more.
Public Health & Health Care
All Michiganders should have access to see a physician whenever necessary. We must end water shut-offs across the state as a public health issue and properly fund mental health facilities.
Prisons & Policing
We must address the racism in our prison system, and have stronger conversations between police and local activists. We must end the drug war and repair broken communities.
Small Business & Economy
We must invest in small, local business and do more to encourage Michiganders to start their own companies.
