In order to help make our state government more transparent and accessible to my constituents, each week that there is session I am going to post to my website a synopsis of the work each House committee will do for the week. This will include the time and location for the meeting as well as any bills or presentations the committee will hear. Each agenda item will include the bill number, the sponsor, and a brief summary of the legislation. If you would like to read in greater detail about any of these bills, you can read them in their full-text at www.legislature.mi.gov.

I am proud that my campaign has already been endorsed by many organizations across the state. I am truly humbled by all of their support. I will be announcing these endorsements regularly between now and election day in November.
My first endorsement, from the International Association of Firefighters Local 421, is near to my heart as I was a member and representative of IAFF 421 during my time at the Lansing Fire Department. It is an honor to have the support of these hardworking and brave men and women.
