Fighting for a Safer and Stronger Michigan

Elder Abuse

Michigan’s seniors are being ripped off every day, and it is well past time we put a stop to it. They are being scammed and preyed upon, all too often by those who are closest to them. My first bill when I became a state representative increased penalties for people who abused our seniors. As your next attorney general, I will continue to lead on this issue and protect our most vulnerable Michiganders.

Sexual Abuse

From domestic relationships to doctors abusing their positions, too many Michiganders have been victims of sexual abuse. During one of the worst sexual abuse scandals in the history of the United States, Michigan was thrown into the spotlight in how we would prosecute Larry Nassar. I called for the resignation of Michigan State University president Lou Anna Simon when no one else would and helped pass legislation to reform MSU’s outdated procedures to make sure this never happens again.  As your next attorney general, I will fight every day to punish the offenders and anyone who enabled them.

Civil Asset Forfeiture

One of the most important doctrines in the American legal system is innocent until proven guilty. We need to make sure everyone gets their day in court before doing anything that could turn their lives upside down. That is why I support reforms to require a conviction before the government can seize your property.

Mental Health

Too many Michiganders have been left behind during the mental health crisis plaguing our state right now. If we can get these people the help they need, we can help them lead better lives and prevent many crimes before they ever happen.  As Speaker of the House, I created the House C.A.R.E.S. task force to look into how we can better solve this crisis. This task force is a good first step, but we still have a long way to go. As your next attorney general, I will use my experience working in the state’s first ever mental health court in Genesee County to work hard every day on finding comprehensive solutions for those struggling with mental illness and those closest to them.

Opioid Crisis

The opioid epidemic has devastated far too many Michigan families, and it is impacting communities all across our state. The simple truth is criminalizing opioid addiction is not always the right answer. For real healing to occur, we need to treat those suffering from addiction with compassion and care, but there can be no leniency for criminals who are responsible for this suffering. I will hold those responsible for this crisis accountable as the next top law enforcement officer in Michigan.


Opioid Epidemic

The opioid epidemic has devastated far too many Michigan families, and it is impacting communities all across our state. We need to look at every side of this problem if we are going to solve it. We need to treat the victims with an open heart while prosecuting all criminals who are responsible for this suffering.

Protect Our Seniors

Michigan’s seniors are being ripped off every day. They are being scammed and preyed upon, all too often by those who are closest to them. As a prosecutor, I saw first-hand many awful schemes which preyed upon seniors time and again. As your next attorney general, I will work every day to protect our most vulnerable Michiganders.
