"My priorities are your priorities." - Rep Kristy Pagan

Thank you for taking the time to learn about where I stand on important policy issues. Growing up in Canton, my dad worked at Ford and Mom worked overnights at Meijer, so they could take care of my sisters and me. We are like a lot of Michigan families – we got by on hard work and a strong community. But in today’s Michigan, working hard doesn’t always cut it. That's why we need leaders in Lansing who will stand up for families like mine and support our students and expand the middle-class. I believe that together we can make Lansing work for us.
