May 28th - Memorial Day Parade

Thank you to #TeamBenac for coming out to commemorate our fallen veterans by marching in the Kalamazoo #MemorialDay Parade. I was honored to be there with the devoted crowd that stayed after the parade for the very hot, but powerful ceremony.
Please join me today in honoring our fallen soldiers. Over 2 million Americans have died in combat or as a result of service-related injuries. Their sacrifices deserve recognition.

May 29th - Kalamazoo County Democratic Party Candidate Forum

Thank you Kalamazoo County Democratic Party for hosting a full house. It was a great opportunity to put forward our progressive vision for the 6th. The more of these forums we do, the more obvious it becomes that a bold progressive agenda is the only path to victory. Join #TeamBenac and help us #CreateTheChange

May 30th - Arclight Brewing

This morning I had the chance to help the brew team at Arclight Brewing Company start brewing our official campaign beer! While we worked, I learned from brewmaster Ed what it takes for a small business to prosper and how they give back to the community.

You can help us name our blueberry wit beer by adding your suggestions in the comment section below, and stay tuned for opportunities to drink it with#TeamBenac in about five weeks!
