June 11 - Allegan County Democratic Party Meeting:

#TeamBenac is bringing the grassroots energy to the 6th District! This is how we will grow the party and build a movement that will help us win seats and #CreateTheChange in 2018 and beyond.

Thank you to the Allegan County Democratic Party for giving me an opportunity to present my strategy to your members and for all of the work you are doing to expand the party in Allegan County.

June 12 - Berrien County MSU Alumni Club

I had fun yesterday with 600 of my closest friends and fellow MSU alumni at the annual picnic hosted by the Berrien County MSU Alumni Club.

I have spent my entire life, as a student and a teacher, in public education and I believe our system has been the best in the world and it will be again.

I will work to achieve full funding for our public schools, halt public funding to private schools, provide every student easy access to licensed social workers, support the union rights of educators, return vocational education to a prominent place in schools, and remove the tuition barrier from all public education from pre-k through college.

Let's #CreateTheChange we need to provide every student with a world class education and #GoGreen!
