Re-establish a part-time legislature in Michigan.

Improve the quality of Michigan laws by replacing the professional politicians in our legislature with citizen legislators.

While Michigan’s state legislature is listed as a full time legislature, its members currently receive almost $80.000 a year not including benefits, expense accounts and paid professional staff. Our legislature is the second highest paid in the country, second only to California. The Michigan State Officers Compensation Commission should be abolished. See the website of the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) at http://www.ncsl.org for a complete comparative description of all State legislatures.
A related concern is “Are we being represented in Lansing?” When our elected officials are not there to vote on issues, we the constituents are deprived of our right to be represented.

A. I propose elimination of the $80,000 annual legislative salaries and all fringe benefits to Legislators. I propose adoption of a New Hampshire style legislature.
B. I propose that the luxury office suites and paid professional staff of each legislator be eliminated. Legislative staffs need to be downsized and consolidated into a central legislative staff.
C. I propose that legislative sessions be limited to not more that 85 days over a period of 4 months (from January 2nd through April 30th) once every other year as in the state of Texas.

Let’s face it, west Michigan is special.

Thank you for checking out my campaign website and taking the time to learn more about me and how I want to represent the good people of the 73rd District.

Why Run?  ...because I want to serve the people of our district and represent OUR shared values and OUR shared interests in Lansing.

I have been working hard to earn the support of the district.  I know that my perseverance, determination and commitment will resonate with the district and am hopeful that 2020 is OUR year.
