When you are a woman, every day can be a fight. We fight to keep our home lives and work lives balanced. We fight for respect in the workplace. But most importantly we fight for better lives for our families. It is these struggles that define who we are and that is why it is so important that we have women fighting in the political arena.
Like most public officials, it was my family and the deep love I have for this nation that got me into public service. I have had the great privilege of campaigning across Michigan, and I am always astounded by the strength of our people. No matter if times are good or bad–we find a way to come together and get the job done. We are the hardest working people in the world and it is vital that we have people in office who will work just as hard for them. Hopefully, we have more woman like me and you who consider running.
My experience as a woman has helped me to bring a unique perspective to each of the roles I have been elected to. A perspective that has allowed me to accomplish many great things for my constituents. I am especially proud of the fact that I was able to bring a whole new perspective to the house appropriations committee where I served as its first female chairperson.
I now have the great honor to serve as the Chairman of the Michigan Republican Party. I am thankful to stand on the shoulders of the great woman who have come before me. Women like Ronna Romney McDaniel, Betsey DeVos, and Susy Avery. Like these phenomenal republican women, It is my sincere hope that I will be able to use my position as Michigan Republican Party Chair to be a resource for other women that want to serve. If you are thinking about running, and believe in conservative values please contact us. You can make a difference in our state and I highly encourage you to get active. Becoming part of “A league of our own” is a great start!
