Agriculture Policy Statement

For decades, the guiding principle of agricultural policy in the United States has been "Go big or go home." We need new leadership for a diverse, sustainable agriculture in the United States, and I want to provide that leadership in Congress based on the principle that farming can and should function as part of a community.

Today, we proudly release one of the most progressive agriculture policies in the nation. The progressive movement started on America's farms, and I am honored to continue the fight for the economic, social, physical, and environmental well-being of all our independent farmers. You can view our official agriculture policy below!

Money is corrupting our political process

Money is corrupting our political process. Our parties are beholden to big donors. Democrats and Republicans are both guilty of putting the demands of corporations, lobbyists, and the wealthy elite before the needs of working Americans.

We cannot put up with this any longer. It's time to elect people who can't be bought! We can and will get money out of politics by reclaiming Congress in 2018 and supporting progressive leaders and groups like U.S. Senator Bernie SandersOur RevolutionBrand New Congress, and Justice Democrats.


Nonstop. That's what this campaign is about. Every single day, we are out there meeting voters, attending events and meetings, and supporting other democratic candidates. If we're going to win in November, we have to put in the work. We need to show the people of Michigan's 6th District that their voices and votes will be heard in Congress by a representative that works solely for the people, NOT corporations and big donors.

I was honored to attend so many different events and meetings throughout West Michigan these past few days. From United We Rise in Grand Haven and Kalamazoo Nonviolent Opponents of War - KNOW's Rock For Your Rights to Palisades Shutdown Campaign-Michigan Safe Energy Future's meeting in South Haven and OutFront Kalamazoo's Winter Gala, I am always ready to fully engage with the people of this district because that's what a representative is supposed to do. No more hiding behind computers and phones. No more hiding in D.C. The new era of representation demands visibility and accountability, and I can guarantee you that I will deliver on both.

Time to #CreateTheChange in 2018 and elect a #BrandNewCongress that truly serves the people!

My fellow Justice Democrats candidate Dr. Rob Davidson and I had a great time speaking at the 2018 MLK Day Teach-In at WMU this morning. We are dedicated to creating real progressive change throughout West Michigan and as your representatives in Congress, we will work to bring social and economic justice to the people of Michigan's 2nd and 6th districts by actually working for the people, not corporations and lobbyists!
