When you are thinking about running for office there is no shortage of advice. Everyone seems to know exactly how a candidate should look, talk and act. It made me hesitate to run, because I don’t want to be a politician. To me politicians are the problem, they don’t help their communities because they’re only listening to campaign donors.
So I’m going to try something different. I am going to be me. I live in this community. I send my son to school here. I worry about how I’m going to pay the next property tax bill. I get upset because I have to replace a car wheel after hitting a pothole.
The decisions made in Lansing impact our lives everyday, you deserve someone who understands that. I might not be the best politician, but I promise you I will never stop fighting for you.
