The Hillsdale Collegian asked 22 questions to four candidates running for the 58th District seat in the Michigan State House of Representatives. The four candidates running for this position are Hillsdale Mayor Adam Stockford ®, local attorney Andrew Fink ®, real estate agent Daren Wiseley ®, and former union representative Steven Sowards (D). Responses are edited for grammar and are printed in the order they were submitted.
Where are you from?
Stockford: Hillsdale, Michigan
Fink: City of Hillsdale
Wiseley: Osseo, Michigan
Sowards: Wheatland Township
How long have you lived in the 58th House District for the State of Michigan?
Stockford: My whole life, born in Hillsdale Hospital, raised in Pittsford, Osseo, and Hillsdale.
Fink: Our current stint began about 2.5 years ago in 2017. After I finished law school, we lived in Hillsdale from August 2010 to January of 2011 when I was called up to active duty. I also lived in Hillsdale from 2003 – 2006 while attending Hillsdale College.
Wiseley: My entire life.
Sowards: I was born and raised here. I had the chance to live in other places outside of Michigan — Sandusky, Ohio; Orlando, Florida; and Chicago, but I always come back home.
What do you enjoy most about living in the 58th House District?
Stockford: I enjoy that this district is close knit and independent. I enjoy the emphasis on education and the future.
Fink: The people we get to live and work with make it the place Lauren and I want to raise our family. We love our neighbors and church community, and living in a city with the countryside just a few minutes away. We’re blessed to be a part of such a vibrant community with so many good people in it.
Wiseley: I enjoy the small town way of life. Everyone knows almost everyone. I love our sense of community. It’s cool to see people I know that have grown up in this community go on to do big things here or elsewhere. Our local restaurants and shops. I also take great pride in being in the same district as Hillsdale College. I love what the school stands for — especially refusing federal aid and standing on principle. So many people in this community have made an impact on my life growing up — whether that’s school, sports, or church — I’m excited to give back to the community as a way of saying thanks for all those who have done so much for me.
Sowards: The people, by far. This community is a community that supports each other. That is really hard to find in other places.
What is the primary issue you will be campaigning on?
Stockford: The major issue I’m campaigning on is local control. I feel like too much authority has been centralized in the state and it hasn’t worked to our benefit. Local townships and cities are more in touch with the needs of their citizens than Lansing is.
Fink: The 2020 election is about competing ideas of what government is for. The different visions of what America is all about that are playing out on the national stage are also present in Lansing, even as Gov. Whitmer is introducing plans to incorporate as much of Obamacare into Michigan law as possible. That means the most important thing for me is standing up for conservative values and republican government, while challenging the bureaucracy that always wants more control over the citizens’ lives.
Wiseley: I’m the pro-life, pro-gun, pro-liberty candidate dedicated to defending the Constitution.
Sowards: Combating health costs. From insurance premiums to outrageous drug prices, the healthcare industry is out of control. As a state rep I would put forth a plan to combat the never-ending rise in health costs to make the action of simply being alive be more controllable.
What are three other important issues for residents living in the 58th District?
Stockford: Three other major issues I see are worker’s compensation insurance reform, regulatory reform, and the big constitutional questions of Right to Life and Second Amendment issues.
Fink: 1) Gov. Whitmer has already demonstrated that she does not consider rural areas and small towns as important as big cities when it comes to road funding and that her plans will be based around increased taxes and increased spending — I will fight for fair treatment for all of Michigan infrastructure investments; 2) Auto-insurance regulation will continue to need policy attention as the reforms put in place last year take effect; 3) Ending so-called “sanctuary” cities, cracking down on human trafficking, and helping to get control of our broken immigration system.
Wiseley: 1) Constitutional Carry. It’s silly that you have to buy a permit to exercise a right you already have. If this issue isn’t in effect by 2021, if elected I would fight to get it here in Michigan. 2) Dismemberment abortion. This may appear as a ballot initiative in the Nov. 3, 2020 election. This would put an end to dismemberment abortions, which dismember a living baby. I find the procedure disgusting and having no place in a civilized society. 3) Bonds for roads. With the unfavorability of the gas tax, Gov. Whitmer is looking for other funding for the roads, unfortunately now she is talking about taking on more debt for these projects. Currently Michigan owes $1.1 billion in transportation debts. It costs more to borrow from the future due to the interest, but unfortunately some politicians will kick the can down the road just to make it look like they’ve done something now. I think this is a terrible idea and the state should consider using the resources it currently has more efficiently rather than just taking more from the taxpayers, whether that be now or in the future.
Sowards: Infrastructure, sustainable jobs, and education. All three of these issues would be things that I would have a plan for in my first 100 days in Lansing. They are important to me and they are important to our community.
What is your position on Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s Reproductive Health Act (RHA), which includes Senate Bill 622 and House Bill 5179?
Stockford: The governor has shown herself to be an enemy of life and liberty. Her reproductive bill is a direct attack on decades of effort to curtail anti-abortion legislation and doesn’t represent the values of this district. As a representative, I would fight this combination of legislative and executive action at every opportunity.
Fink: I’m against it. I’ve been active in the pro-life movement since I was a kid, participating in pro-life rallies, concerts, and fundraisers. A law like the RHA would be a major step backwards. Michigan law already prohibits abortion and recognizes that all human life is inherently valuable, and I will fight to prevent policies that will end the lives of more innocent babies.
Wiseley: Last time I checked my Constitution, there is no “right to an abortion.” If Roe v. Wade were overturned, Michigan’s ban would become law again and the debate would begin with what to do with it. I would support keeping it in place. I also oppose taxpayer funding of abortion facilities.
Sowards: I am not going to lie to you, I am pro-choice. However, there are many things in this bill that I do not agree with and things that I know the people of this district do not agree with. The bill on its surface would get a “no” from me. That being said, I am not a candidate that is going to try to overturn Roe v. Wade in Michigan. It is an issue that has been decided in a federal court, and I plan to focus my energy on other issues. I do believe that abortion should never be used as birth control, and I do intend to put together a plan for easier access to birth control for low-income families in an effort to lower the abortion rate at its source.
After following the budget debate between Republicans and Gov. Whitmer, what was the biggest success from either side in agreeing to a budget?
Stockford: The biggest win in the budget debate is that we aren’t currently looking at a 45 cent gas tax.
Fink: The budget overall was a bipartisan compromise out of necessity. I think the biggest success for both sides was the determination to pass a budget that did not make major changes to the status quo given that Gov. Whitmer’s gas tax plan was going nowhere and the state needed a budget to continue operations.
Wiseley: Our state has a budget that is way too large and bloated. Spending needs to be cut significantly and more care taken to use taxpayer dollars in a frugal and responsible manner. The auto-insurance reform was one good policy that came out of this agreement. While I rarely compliment Gov. Whitmer, I’ll give it where it’s due. I am glad she cut Pure Michigan spending. This is perhaps the worst state program we have. For every $1 million increase in state tourism promotion spending, there was a corresponding increase in economic activity of just $20,000 in the accommodations industry. Furthermore, it is unfair because it takes money from the many to give to the few. She did the right thing here and I hope taxpayer funding of the program continues to stay at zero.
Sowards: The budget was and still is a mess. I have yet to see a real success from either side. Lansing is playing politics as usual and putting party issues ahead of the issues that are important to the people of Michigan. It is very sad to witness, especially in regards to infrastructure. The governor fought her way into office on the promise of fixing the roads that are crumbling beneath us, and both parties are standing in the way instead of compromising on a plan to get it done.
After following the budget debate between Republicans and Gov. Whitmer, what was the biggest failure from either side in agreeing to a budget?
Stockford: The biggest failure is a mere extra $13 million was appropriated for road repair, despite the acknowledgment from both parties that more funding needs to go towards this. Also a major failure would be the political process in the budget. When the budget becomes a political fight, everyone loses.
Fink: The way Gov. Whitmer played games with important areas of spending, like rural road patrol and certain types of educational services, was cynical and caused real harm. Much of that was addressed with the supplemental bills after the main budget was adopted, but the interruptions caused by her gamesmanship were unnecessary and counterproductive.
Wiseley: I think the amount of spending that goes on is a loss for taxpayers. County governments took a hit of around $60 million, this is unfortunate because a lot of day-to-day operations were hit, and I’d like to see more decisions made at the local level as opposed to the state level.
Sowards: Did not respond
Looking ahead to the 2021 budget, which areas do you believe need to receive more funding and why? Are there any areas you believe were designated too much money?
Stockford: It’s quite clear more money needs to go to infrastructure, education, and public safety. So many departments are indeed overfunded. One thing that comes to mind was an increase to our public universities, which seems a little excessive considering the constant increase in tuition. Government, in general, is not good at anything it does, so it would stand to reason it should do less.
Fink: I would like the state to focus its spending on long-term assets like roads and bridges that the economy of the state depends on. I would prefer to reduce or eliminate spending that directly interferes with market initiatives — like Michigan Business Development Program grants and public transit subsidies.
Wiseley: Almost every area receives too much money. I’d like to see more money returned to the local level.
Sowards: Infrastructure and education. Both our public schools and local public roads will be issues that I will go to bat for us to get more funding for, especially in the 58th district.
What would you do to improve the financial opportunities for law enforcement departments and individuals in law enforcement? How would you work to improve law enforcement conditions in District 58?
Stockford: While I would like to see our state police well funded, the increase needs to be experienced locally, in county sheriff offices, city and village forces. A good way to increase funding to those programs would be to increase revenue sharing by decreasing the dependency on grants for pet projects that don’t offer benefit to all residents as law enforcement does.
Fink: The Michigan Constitution requires counties to employ sheriffs and provides for certain regulations of the state police. That police entities are specifically mentioned in our state’s constitution is a recognition that law enforcement is a fundamental purpose of government. Law enforcement officers are vital public servants and it is our duty as citizens (and the duty of the legislature) to make police work an honored profession which can support a family. My dad was a sheriff’s officer when I was a child, and I have worked on behalf of police departments since entering private practice in 2014, so I have been around police officers all my life and admire the hard work they do to make our communities better. As the next representative from this district, I will work to prevent the governor from playing games with public safety like she did by vetoing funding for secondary road patrol.
Wiseley: We have had problems recently with a shortage of law enforcement and patrols having to be cut. Many of them work long, rigorous hours and have to deal with extremely stressful and sometimes tragic situations. I think addressing the reality of post traumatic stress disorder and trauma as it affects law enforcement is a positive action that could be taken to improve longevity as well as the well-being of law enforcement that puts their lives on the line for us.
Sowards: Our law enforcement members are a group of people who are always on my mind. I would take a look at the salary, benefits and pensions to see if there is any room for improvement, I have a feeling there is.
What is your opinion on the no-fault auto insurance reform bill signed in 2019?
Stockford: I’m proud of our legislature for trying to address no-fault insurance and I simultaneously worry that it doesn’t do enough. Having had dozens of discussions with insurance agents, I think it’s clear that we may have to revisit this in a couple years so we can evaluate the impact the new bill actually has on Michigan residents. In the meantime, I do think it’s worthy of admiration that our legislature worked so hard on this issue and recognized our current system was unfair and far too expensive.
Fink: Auto insurance reform was a necessary move to bring down Michigan’s absurd auto insurance rates. As a border-district, the citizens of this district are particularly aware of how much cheaper insurance is in other states. I was glad to see the citizens get some relief from rates that had been the highest in the nation.
Wiseley: I think it was a great bipartisan move that I’m proud of our state government for coming together on. Michigan residents are tired of the extremely high auto insurance rates. It makes no sense to have the state mandate the Rolls Royce of insurance plans on us. Creating more options is always better and leads to lower prices.
Sowards: The no-fault bill is a good start to lowering costs for drivers while still providing quality insurance. However, I feel it is just that, a start. There is still a lot of work that needs to be done in the insurance sector.
If you were elected, what ways would you hope to improve auto insurance for your constituents and residents across Michigan?
Stockford: As far as auto insurance goes, we need to wait and see what impact the current bill is going to have, but I’m open to any ideas, including eliminating the no-fault system altogether.
Fink: I have had some insurance industry representatives suggest some ancillary reforms to me, but I want to be sure that any other changes we make are consistent with the overall concept that the reform was intended to serve — to make it easier and cheaper for Michigan drivers to insure their vehicles — so that the citizens can adjust to the new law without additional interruptions.
Wiseley: I would continue down the path of creating more options for Michiganders. When the free market is allowed to solve problems, people are given opportunities to choose the coverage the need that suits them, rather than have something they don’t want forced on them by law from someone who doesn’t know their situation. I will work across the aisle on this because I know constituents in Democratic districts will be just as happy to have their coverage more affordable as Republicans. Creating less choices leads to better options and lower costs. A win for all Michigan residents.
Sowards: The biggest issue that still remains is the fact that insurance companies can still set fees based on demographics and credit score, two things that do not directly affect one’s ability to drive responsibly. I would look for a way to close that loophole and have fees set on driving record and age.
If you were elected, which committee(s) do you hope to be selected to serve on and why? In what committee(s) do you see yourself having the most significant impact?
Stockford: Two committees jump out at me, the local government and municipality committee and also the regulatory committee. My municipal experience and understanding the impact state policy has on local government would be most beneficial.
Fink: My experience as a Marine and civilian attorney, and especially my service on the State Bar of Michigan Board of Commissioners, have prepared me well to serve on the judiciary committee. As the only veteran in this race, I am also ready to serve the more than 5,000 veterans in this district on the military, veterans and homeland security committees. I also believe I could be an immediate leader on the local government and municipal finance and oversight committees, having worked in local government as a Township attorney for the past six years.
Wiseley: Judiciary. As one who has practiced law I understand the system very well. I am very passionate about playing a role in improving the criminal justice system. Ways and Means; Appropriations; Tax Policy: I would like to serve on all of these committees because budgeting is the root of all activities the state engages in. I think we need to fundamentally rethink the amount of spending that goes on at the state level. On these committees I could make an impact on making sure that spending is frugal and responsible and also goes to the right areas as opposed to wasteful activity. When it comes to taxes, I’ve already pledged to oppose all new taxes so that could be a way for me to be involved in keeping that promise.
Sowards: Did not respond.
What role, if any, would you hope to have on the House C.A.R.E.S Task Force for mental health?
Stockford: The C.A.R.E.S. task force has good intentions, but as I said before, my own contribution would be a push towards ensuring counties have the resources and funding to be successful in addressing mental health. This is a local issue. We’re seeing it in Hillsdale now. Let us keep more of our resources and we’ll do what is needed.
Fink: Mental health is a policy area that has often been neglected and is now getting some much-needed attention from policy makers, including from this task force. I am encouraged that the task force has sought input from specialty court judges and administrators, along with mental health professionals from the Department of Veterans Administration, correctional facilities, and hospitals. I would be glad to be a part of this task force or other efforts to better understand and address the issues that mental illness causes in our community, including impacts on emergency responders, the court system, and schools.
Wiseley: Possibly something with substance abuse treatment and recovery. There’s a huge correlation between mental health and substance abuse, I served in the Hillsdale County Drug Treatment Court, and have seen this first hand. My experience there has provided me with valuable insight that could be used to help combat these issues.
Sowards: C.A.R.E.S. is definitely something I would look to get involved in. I believe that the mental health epidemic is something that does not get enough attention. It would be my role to shed more light on mental health in our community.
What is your opinion on the “Buggy Bills”? What reform, if any, do you think should be considered with respect to the Amish buggy-system and auto-safety?
Stockford: If buggies are going to use public roads, then they should be required to have the basic safety devices like turn signals, etc in their vehicles for their own and other’s safety. I’m not interested in scapegoating the Amish community because of their religious views or agricultural lifestyle, but public roads are shared resources, so a few simple precautions are not too much of a burden to be noticed or to be an affliction on their religious requirements.
Fink: I admire and respect the way that the Amish community in Southern Michigan lives out their traditions and that they are deliberate about how they incorporate technological innovations into their lifestyles. These bills are not meant as a disruption to the Amish way of life but to protect the lives of those in horse-drawn vehicles by requiring them to have lights so they can been seen at night, and to protect the public streets by requiring that buggies have tires made of a material that will not cause the damage to the road that some of the wheels currently in use can cause. I support these common sense reforms to increase safety and reduce spending on our public roads.
Wiseley: There’s been a lot of accidents lately and this hazard has brought the subject to the forefront of discussion again. Rep. Leutheuser’s bill requiring lights should definitely help reduce accidents at night. There are three bills in the senate, one also addressing the issue of lights. Another requires a horse and buggy registration and manual, I’m not too convinced on the necessity of that one. The third requires rubber tires to stop the buggy wheels from tearing up the roads.
Sowards: The Buggy Bills could easily be a bipartisan issue we could come together on, especially SB 643 and SB 644 calling for safety features that would aid both the buggy drivers as well as the auto drivers.
What strategies would you use to improve relations between Republicans and Democrats in the House to pass legislation that benefits the residents of the 58th District? Stockford: Foregoing the political theatrics and treating those with different views with the common courtesy they deserve would go a long way to improving those relationships between Rs and Ds. Agreeing to disagree seems to be a thing of the past in American politics.
Fink: I am not sure that relations between Republicans and Democrats in the house are particularly in need of repair, but my approach to all my colleagues will be to be honest and open about what I think is good for Michigan and good for the 58th District. There will always be disagreements between the parties, and legislators must be realistic about what they can achieve and how to achieve it, but my main concern will be good policy, not warm feelings. I can get along with people I disagree with and I won’t change my mind about what’s good for the citizens just to be nice to another representative.
Wiseley: Finding common ground on areas we can agree on that benefit all Michiganders. Auto-insurance reform is a great example of this.
Sowards: Did not respond.
What do you think is the best approach to reaching bipartisan agreements with Gov. Whitmer?
Stockford: Understanding that Gov. Whitmer has a constituency she is trying to please and approaching her with that mentality might help. She did win the election, so we can assume she feels a charge as a result of that. If addressing her with that basic respect in regards to communications, hopefully she might realize that each Republican in office also has a constituency with certain expectations and that can be a common ground moving forward. That being said, I can’t see many issues or situations where, politically speaking, wed have common ground enough to find more common solutions, considering her views on gun control, government size, and abortion.
Fink: Unfortunately, Gov. Whitmer has not made it easy for conservatives to work with her. Her signature proposal so far has been a tax increase that would have raised Michigan’s gas tax by almost 150%. She has also used the powers of the executive branch capriciously to avoid following policy that the people’s representatives have put in place. And now she’s driving the Reproductive Health Act, which is an extreme attempt to make abortion more common in Michigan. I think the best way to deal with this governor is to continue to talk to the people and report back to Lansing what the men and women of Michigan actually think about enormous tax increases and centralizing power in the governor’s office. Eventually, reality has to set in, and Gov. Whitmer will have to recognize that the citizens that elected her also elected the legislators who are not interested in repeating the lost decade of the 2000s in Michigan and need her to be realistic about her approach to governing.
Wiseley: I will never sacrifice principle to “get things done.” My answer to this is similar to that of the last question, in areas where we can come together to improve liberty and prosperity for Michiganders I am happy to work with whoever to accomplish that goal. My objective is to always put the people first, regardless of who is the governor or any other office.
Sowards: The best thing we can do is find a middle ground that benefits the people of Michigan. For so long, Lansing has been bogged down with party politics and has not been nearly as productive as they could have been if they just found the middle ground and took the high road. I am not a far left Democrat, I know that there are some issues I am going to have to break from the party for because it is what best represents the will of the people of the 58th district. I plan to focus my energy on finding that middle ground, championing compromise and getting things done.
What positions have you held in the past that have prepared you to serve as the State Rep. for the 58th District?
Stockford: Besides Mayor, I was a city councilman for four years, and have half a decade experience in business and workforce development, where I’ve helped hundreds of local residents find work and hundreds of local businesses better their operations and find employees. This gives me a pretty good grasp on local needs and local issues. On top of that, I think I’ve probably served on more committees than any candidate in this race or any other. I’ve also worked for various PACs at the federal level in the policy area, all conservative ones, such as former Congressman Jim Ryun’s Madison Project. That gives me the combination of political and business experience to be an effective legislator for this area.
Fink: All of my professional experience is relevant to the work of a legislator. My years as a Marine officer taught me how to be focused on mission accomplishment even as circumstances change. My years as an attorney in private practice have taught me how to work with people completely opposed to my client’s and achieve success. And my work on Sen. Mike Shirkey’s staff has given me direct experience in the important role that legislators play in helping the citizens of their district overcome the bureaucracy in Lansing. Working with Senator Shirkey and working for Congressman Tim Walberg’s campaign has also given me insight into how to work toward conservative solutions when much of the legislature is more interested in their next election than policy.
Wiseley: Assistant Prosecuting Attorney; Indiana Senate Legal/ Legislative Intern; Vice President of Indiana University Public Interest Law Foundation; Real Estate Professional; Disability Law Clinic. I have a variety of experiences in the public and private sectors. These include different aspects of the legal system as well as behind the scenes of the legislative process. These experiences give me insight into the issues we might face and how to combat them. More importantly, the principles I’m grounded in will allow me to stick to ends that create liberty and abide by the Constitution, which I have an unwavering commitment to.
Sowards: As a union rep for the Association of Flight Attendants I learned how to put others ahead of myself and best represent the will of the people. That was a very valuable lesson, my opinion is just that, my opinion.
If you could point to a single moment or experience that finalized your decision to run for the State House, what would it be?
Stockford: If I had to pick a single moment, I’d say it was when I realized the difficulty in operating a small city as a result of the states actions and regulations. Truly the most difficult part of keeping a city moving forward is keeping the state pleased and off your back. They expect more and more every year and give less and less back.
Fink: I had a conversation a few months ago with a friend of mine. We talked about our concerns about the direction the country is headed in, and about the kind of world that my kids might inherit from my generation. He pointed out to me that if I want to influence that situation, I can’t wait until my kids are grown up — it will be too late. Afterward, I reflected on the experience and talents that I can bring to the legislature and decided that now is the time to serve. Wiseley: Hard to point to a single moment, quite frankly I’m tired of our liberties being second fiddle to political ambitions. I’m tired of the Constitution being viewed as a mere nuisance in the way of government doing whatever it wants. I’m sick of politicians not thinking about the long term consequences of a decision and failing to understand even basic economics. These feelings lead up to that decision. But the closest thing was when a friend called me up to meet for breakfast, encouraging me to run. The fact that someone had so much confidence in me was humbling and pushed me over the edge in the decision.
Sowards: I was sitting in a hospital one day in Toledo. I looked around me and saw the facility and how they seemed to flaunt their wealth — fountains, fancy lights and expensive artwork. I thought to myself, who was currently in $100,000’s in medical debt “this is fundamentally wrong.” Hospitals should be comfortable and clean but should be more focused on getting people better, not gold-plated photo frames. That was when I knew I had to do something about the outrageous healthcare costs.
What college did you attend? What year did you graduate? What did you study?
Stockford: Hillsdale College with a degree in politics, also a graduate of Jackson College with a degree in criminal justice and law enforcement.
Fink: Hillsdale College and graduated in 2006 with a degree in political science as a recipient of the Jeanne E. Bray Memorial Scholarship from the National Rifle Association.
Wiseley: Indiana Institute of Technology, Business, 2015; Indiana University Maurer School of Law J.D., 2018.
Sowards: University of Central Florida for a Bachelors in Communications — Public Relations.
Is your campaign working on anything exciting at this time to prepare for the election?
Stockford: I’d rather not give away too much of what the campaign is working on, but we’re working.
Fink: We’ve been working throughout the winter and preparing to see as many folks as we can before the primary in August. We’re excited to share our conservative message across the district by all available means! We just launched our Facebook page and will be doing a lot more in the months to come.
Wiseley: Just getting the word out.
Sowards: We are currently working on boosting our online presence. Our website and Facebook page are live, and we are currently working on reaching out to our community more.
Is there anything else you hope to share with the potential voters?
Stockford: I would just say I’ve kept my campaign promises as mayor and as a result we’ve seen revenue increases each year, a raise in starting wages, a drop in the poverty rate, new businesses and business expansion, and a record number of infrastructure repair and maintenance projects. I’ve stayed accountable to the people who’ve elected me, and I treat every resident like they’re my stead and also my employer. I’ve stood up for the rights of the individual and followed the city charter and the constitution. I’ve worked hard for this area in so many different aspects. I’m not a perfect candidate who has lived a flawless, squeaky clean life, but I’ve done what I said I would and Hillsdale is all the better for it. Like me or not, no one can legitimately deny that things aren’t better than they were three years ago, and although that’s been a result of many people, not just myself, I’m glad to have played a leading role. I love this community and it’s paid me back with love and support in spades. I’m confident no one will work harder or be more accountable to the people than I will. I understand this district, what makes it unique, it’s strengths and it’s challenges, and I was born to hold this office.
Fink: This election is about choosing who will do the best job of protecting Michigan from the socialist vision that is taking over the Democratic party which does not recognize that Michigan values include roles for individuals, families, churches, and communities in taking care of one another. The right person for the job is someone with a commitment to faith and family, a willingness to take on the radical liberals, and a history of service. I am ready to serve and ask for your support.
Wiseley: As a lifelong district resident I’m committed to serving them and will not compromise on our values. I appreciate their time and consideration. They can find out more at choosewiseley.org
Sowards: I want people to know that I am always here. Democrat or Republican, I care about everyone in our community and I want to hear from you. I want you to tell me about the issues that keep you up at night so I can find a plan to fix them. Life is full of worry, but there are some things that your local leaders should be responsible for worrying about. Let me do that, let me do the worrying so you can live your best life. Please also reach out to facebook.com/SowardsforMI58 to send me a message and keep updated on the campaign.
