ACA

May 12, 2017 - Campaign Update #2

It was a great week. I enjoyed talking with lots of people around the district and learning more about what people are worried about and how I can help. The rally in St. Joseph was particularly exciting. We had a crowd of over 200 people in the park and throughout the community, demanding that we protect the ACA.

If you haven't signed up for emails or joined the volunteer team, please do so soon. We launched the Twitter account today, so you now have another way to follow along as we build this movement. I hope to see you next week.

May 11, 2017 - Rally in Defense of Health Care, St. Joseph, MI

St. Joe Handshake

Michigan’s Sixth Congressional District made a powerful statement on Thursday. Voters from across the district rallied in St. Joseph to declare that the Republican attack on health care will not be tolerated. I consider myself lucky to have been there, shoulder-to-shoulder with the people as we made our voices heard. It was a pleasure to meet some of these people for the first time. 

St. Joe Discussion

I met three generations of one family, all of whom live in St. Joseph, with every member deeply worried about the implications of the attack on health care and elected officials’ refusal to talk with constituents. One of the younger members of the family, a student in high school, stood on a picnic table and delivered a powerful speech about what health care means for his family. Any legislator who is willing to take health care away from that young man, his parents, and his grandparents does not represent me. 

Let’s work together. Only through our combined effort will we be able to secure our right to health care and to strengthen our families and communities.
