It is very important for the mental growth of our children to get them back to school safely, with more local control, while working with local health departments and professionals to ensure proper safety measures.

2. If elected as (State Representative for the 109th District), how do you propose to address that concern? (100 words or less)

I have been a leader in Government roles my entire life. I will ensure that local governments are working closely with healthcare professionals to get our children the education they need and deserve, while maintaining the safety of our most valuable assets.

Outdated government and ineffective leadership constricting life and liberty. Michigan remains in a “State of Emergency” because the governor can extend an emergency order without the legislature’s input using the “Emergency Powers of the Governor Act of 1945.” Many residents have voiced utter distress coping with this “tyrannical” form of governing. They plead for the chaos and division to end surrounding the “Michigan Lockdown,” especially in the Upper Peninsula where folks already struggle to survive. Undeniably SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) is contagiou

s, and many suggest quarantine for vulnerable citizens, especially those with compromised immune systems and continued good hygiene practices for all.

A solution has been introduced known as “Unlock Michigan” and petitions are being signed statewide to repeal the “Emergency Powers of the Governor Act of 1945,” which is in violation of the “Separation of Powers” doctrine. This combined effort of Michigan citizens gives many a resounding sound of hope and encouragement as “We the People” stand up to have our voices heard. A “1976 Emergency Management Act” is used in lieu to extend a “State of Emergency” with legislature approval every 28 days. I believe (that with) continued good hygiene, caution by immunocompromised folks, and quarantine of sick, Michigan will move forward.
