Farming
​​
​I am not a farmer and I won't pretend to know the struggles of farming in order to get your vote.  My family has a decent garden and have raised turkeys, ducks and rabbits that we've processed for meat as well as several chickens for eggs, but that is nothing compared to the massive responsibilites farmers have caring for their fields and animals that put food on millions of plates.  When I am elected I plan on creating my own advisory committee of farmers from each county in the district to tell me directly what is needed to keep farming profitable in Michigan and let me know when a problem is starting to arise so we can be proactive in solving it.  In the meantime I want to hear from all types of farmers.  Please give me your thoughts, worries, and proposals for solutions.  Use the contact page or e-mail me directly at [email protected]
The Main Issue

A Truly Representative Government

  
I do believe that farmers are important to Michigan and I want to hear your thoughts.  Use the Contact Christopher page to share your ideas, opinions or even your disagreement with what I propose.​​

The reason I am running for State Senator is because I believe that both the Republican and Democrat parties are failing at listening to their constituents.  They are too focused on keeping or gaining power for their party and not focused enough on going back to the voters that elected them to hear what they think about the issues.  In today's world with modern technology and social media it is not hard for legislators to hear what voters have to say if they are willing to listen.
I am not a person that will go around giving speeches telling you how you should feel about a subject.  I want to go out and hear your opinion, not shape it.  The following issues and the potential solutions I propose are not carved in stone.  I believe we need to be thinking outside the box of what has become the traditional politician's thinking - maintaining the status quo.  I do believe the issues below are important, but I'm sure there are others that are just as important or more important to you.  I want to hear it, use the contact page to let your voice be heard.  It doesn't matter if you're a Republican, a Democrat, one of the minor parties or an Independent, I want to hear your voice.  Your State Senator shouldn't just represent members of a certain party, but every person.  That is how a representative government should work.
