Supporting Detroit and Hamtramck’s children and families through education.
Detroit and Hamtramck’s future depends on how we educate our children. Lansing has taken steps to improve funding for District 4 schools, and Matt knows that a strong voice is needed in the capitol to maintain this commitment to the district’s school system.
As representative of District 4, Matt will fight for Detroit and Hamtramck’s children and families at both the local and state levels. This means advocating for consistent funding of the district’s schools, and supporting local control over local schools.
In addition to fighting for District 4’s schools in Lansing, Matt hopes to utilize the office of the State Representative to organize communities around their local schools. Supporting public institutions locally will help equip schools with the resources necessary to serve students above and beyond what the state provides, making way for opportunities like continuing education and job training programs.
