A little bit of background

I come to the Senate after serving six years in the Michigan House of Representatives.

My family has lived in Kent and Ionia counties for generations. My wife Erica and I are raising our five children in the Lowell area. My family, with my parents, joined me recently as I took the oath of office on the Senate floor.

I attended both Michigan State University and the University of Michigan. Before joining the Legislature, I served in the U.S. Marine Corps and worked as an investor for the State of Michigan Retirement Systems.

A matter of priorities

The new legislative term is just beginning. But I can tell you I will fight for tax relief that is fair and simple and helps as many Michiganders as possible.

I will work to ensure we have a state budget that invests responsibly and eliminates unwise spending – respecting the taxpayers who pay for public services. I will fight to keep Right to Work laws that protect workers’ freedoms and improve the economy.

I will fight to protect life as the next steps evolve after voter approval of Proposal 3 in November 2022. I will continue to support our Second Amendment rights.

These are just a the few of the issues I expect to arise fairly early in the new legislative session. I plan to update you on these and many other topics as time goes on.

Committee assignments

I am a former chair of the House Appropriations Committee, and I will be able to continue that important work in the Senate with my new committee assignments.

I will serve on the Senate Appropriations Committee as the top-ranked Republican on the General Government, Universities and Community Colleges, and Michigan Department of Education subcommittees. I also will be a member of the PreK-12 budget subcommittee. Additionally, I will serve on the Senate Labor Committee.
