Working for you

She understands Downriver communities are diverse areas that represent different backgrounds. The region features working families, single-parent households, veterans, retirees and many small-business owners who all look to their elected officials to work on their behalf and provide effective, accountable leadership every day.
Jamie will pursue legislation that works to hold state government accountable to the people it represents, provide more transparency and communication to parents regarding their child’s education, and diversify Michigan’s workforce so that the state and region can be a leader for the good-paying jobs of today and tomorrow. She will also fight for local infrastructure projects that improve roads and bridges from driveway to highway across Downriver communities.
