Roads & Infrastructure
The condition of Michigan’s road is more than an embarrassment — it deters economic growth, requires our residents to make costly auto repairs and is a safety hazard. Sarah knows we need to work at the state and local level to ensure our communities have safe roads and sidewalks.
Public education has a direct impact on the economy and raises families out of poverty. We must empower and equip our kids today to compete in a global job market tomorrow. Sarah believes we must invest in early childhood education, public schools and higher education.
Sarah believes that health care is a right and works to ensure Michigan residents have quality, affordable health coverage. In the Michigan Legislature, Sarah has supported legislation to expand health coverage for working families, lower prescription drug costs, and expand access to mental health services for Michigan families.
Growing our Middle Class
We need to grow our economy from the middle out by investing in our workforce and preparing every Michigander for the 21st century economy. No one who works hard in Michigan should live below the poverty line. That’s why Sarah supports increasing the minimum wage and jumpstarting our economy by keeping talent in Michigan.
As a long time advocate for environmental justice, Sarah has used her voice and her votes in the state Capitol to expand access to clean water, clean air, and combat the effects of climate change.
This year, millions of students, teachers and citizens marched across this country to call for gun reform. Sarah was proud to join students at the Michigan State Capital and pledge to continue to use her voice and vote to make common sense gun reform a reality. #EnoughIsEnough
Everyone deserves dignity and respect in the workplace, a living wage, and safe working conditions. As state representative, Sarah continues to be a strong supporter and fighter for unions as well as a voice for working citizens.
As the daughter of two UAW parents, Sarah often says that the UAW ensured that she, and her siblings, had health care and a path to the middle class.
