The Better Man for a Better Michigan

Our Future

Being a lifelong Michigan resident with my wife Rita and four children I totally understand that our youth are our future. With my experience in education and business I have a vision that makes the future for our children bright.

Our Economy

The current state of the Michigan economy is fragile to say the least. I am deeply concerned not only for the 84th district but for the state as a whole. I am dedicated to finding out what is actually needed and proactively work with my colleagues to implement logical solutions to create real jobs with real benefits.

Our Health Care

Now that we have government administered health care it is my focus to see that it is run with the highest standards at the most reasonable cost to the consumer. Everyone agrees that something needs to be done to lower costs and increase efficiency of our health care system as a whole. I am currently on the Board of Directors for the Michigan Rural Healthcare Preservation, Inc. The mission of MRHP is to preserve and develop world-class healthcare services across Michigan based on the needs of those we serve.
