Issues That Matter to All of Us

I am currently serving in my first term as State Representative, District 29. The 29th District encompasses the Auburn Hills, Keego Harbor, Orchard Lake Village, Pontiac, and Sylvan Lake.  I proudly serve on the Education Committee, Insurance Committee, and Families, Children, and Seniors Committee. 


I work hard every day addressing  the shortcomings in our state's infrastructure, including the availability and distribution of fresh water, updated and smooth roads and highways, structurally-safe bridges, and modern well-equipped airports. These issues are critical not only for the state to remain competitive nationally and in business, but also to solidify the quality of life for our citizens.
