Q: 1. Please provide biographical information and experience, and explain why you are running for the Ingham County Board of Commissioners. A: I grew up in the Lansing area and currently live in the Westside Neighborhood with my fiancé, Cody. We chose to live in the City of Lansing because we love the sense of community in its neighborhoods. My introduction to public service was running Chris Swope’s campaign for Lansing City Clerk in 2005. Since that time I have had the privilege of working for several Democratic state lawmakers, including House Democratic Floor Leader Sam Singh. I have worked on various policy issues such as transportation infrastructure, government transparency and equal protection for the people of our state. After the 2013 ice storm, when many members of our community lost power for over a week, I felt compelled to speak out against what I saw as a lack of responsiveness during a time of public need. I was encouraged by friends and neighbors to continue my public involvement and voice concerns. As an Ingham County Commissioner, I will be a strong advocate for our community.
Q: 2. What are the priority issues facing the Ingham County Board of Commissioners and what actions would you take to address them if elected? A: As an Ingham County Commissioner I will build on successful efforts, such as Potter’s Park Zoo and the 9-1-1 Emergency call system, to further regional cooperation efforts that provide better, more efficient services for citizens. I will prioritize infrastructure spending to maintain the investment citizens have made by focusing funds from the Parks and Trails Millage to repair the existing pathways. I will look out for the interests of our county’s most vulnerable citizens by advocating for programs such as the Ingham Health Plan and the juvenile justice courts.
