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 will work to ensure Michigan residents have quality, affordable health coverage. As an Ingham County Commissioner, Sarah has been a vocal champion for the Ingham Health Plan and will continue to fight for health care, including mental health care and reproductive care.
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.
Sarah believes in the mission of the Michigan League of Conservation Voters and she stands with MLCV to protect our Great Lakes and our drinking water. Given the opportunity to serve as your next state rep, Sarah will strive to make Michigan an environmental leader again.
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
The SEIU is dedicated to ensuring workers’ rights in both the private and public sector, believing that everyone deserves dignity and respect in the workplace. As a firm believer in these principles, Sarah will continue 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.
The UAW and other labor unions fight every day for competitive wages and safe working conditions. Sarah is grateful to have the support of the UAW Region 1-D and promises to continue to fight for working families in Lansing and throughout the state of Michigan.
