William Broman, Republican, Announces Candidacy For Michigan State House District 1, Representing Detroit, Grosse Pointes, Harper Woods

Feb 17, 2016, 08:30 ET from William Broman for Michigan

DETROIT, Feb. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today William Broman, a Republican, announced his candidacy for State Representative for Michigan's 1st State House District which includes a portion of Northeast Detroit, Harper Woods, and Grosse Pointe Woods/Shores.  If successful, Broman will be the only Republican to represent Detroit in an elected office, and one of the youngest members of the legislature at 24.

"This is undoubtedly a challenging race, but I think voters will find my sustainable, fiscally responsible, community oriented, approach to policy appealing," says Broman.  He seeks to develop forward looking, people-focused policy that address key issues facing the district.  Areas of focus include:

  • Education Reform
  • Eradicating Hunger
  • Public Safety
  • Fostering Job Creation
  • Infrastructure Improvements

On eradicating hunger Broman says "1 in 3 people eligible for Michigan's Food Assistance Program live in Wayne County, subjecting people to potential food insecurities, and increasing health risks.  It will prove more costly for taxpayers, long term, to ignore the lack of access to affordable healthy foods, rather than to invest in sustainable solutions now."

He says "one of Detroit's most violent areas, referred to often as "The Red Zone," sits squarely in the first district causing problems for Detroit, Harper Woods, and all of the Pointes.  I pledge to fight in Lansing to ensure law enforcement agencies are extended the necessary resources to stop violent crimes and gang activity and secure our neighborhoods."

The campaign announced a community coffee hour on Saturday February 20, 2016 at 8:30am at Mack Grille in Grosse Pointe Woods.
