Hi, my name is Larry, and I am currently campaigning to serve Holland, Holland Township, Park Township, and Laketown Township in Lansing. I bring 15+ years of public service experience from my time in the US Navy, part of the founding team of a non-profit, and serving the Spring Lake community as a firefighter for 2 years.
I believe in the politics of progress. If we work together, we can build a state and district we can be proud of and create communities we love to come home to. As a public servant, I used these principles of hope, progress, and equity for all, in my life and in my community to create change. As State Representative I will continue working every day to do the same, and to serve the interest of the 86th District.
As the son of hardworking parents, I understand the challenges that the 86th district working families face because I have lived them. And coming from a family of poverty-stricken southern settlers in Chicago, I know that just like my upbringing in that environment, Michigan can be a place of promise for many seeking to achieve the American Dream of prosperity. But we need to do more to ensure that all families have a fair chance to get ahead.
For too long, politicians have put partisanship over people. We need our state government to prioritize working families and understand our community’s stories of struggle and success. In Lansing, I will be honored to lead and fight for you. As your State Representative I will bring the same principles to our work as I advocate for change.
I believe in constant communication, so feel free to contact me and my team if you need anything. You can reach us on social media @LJacksonforstaterep or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am looking forward to starting the conversation about our future.
