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.


Today, in Allegan, SW Michigan Rising Up put on a great event: Rising Up--A Celebration of the Collective Power of Women. Several gubernatorial candidates, including Gretchen Whitmer, Dr. Abdul El-Sayed, and Bill Cobbs stopped by to share their visions for Michigan’s future, taking time to meet the energized crowd.  Whoever comes out of this race is certain to do great things for the state. Throughout the day, activists and musicians from around the state circulated petitions, raised awareness on a variety of issues and entertained the crowd. I was lucky to be there on behalf of the Michigan Democratic Party Environment Caucus as we work on building up our outreach network. For more information on the great work the caucus is doing, check them out on Facebook and Twitter.
