Sunday , 22, June 2014 Leave a comment

The 34th State Senate District in Michigan covers the counties of Mason, Muskegon, Newaygo and Oceana. The next state senator representing the people of this district is Democratic Party candidate Cathy Forbes. Cathy is ready to go to Lansing and make the changes the people living in the 34th district want. The issues she’s focusing on in her campaign are education and job growth.

Cathy Forbes understands first hand that when confronted with a tough job you have to meet it head on. She is the mother of two children and owns her own business. She served on the road commission in Oceana County and was re-elected to that position. Already she’s working hard on the campaign trail with volunteers to inform the people of the 34th district she is ready to go to work for them.

On the issues Cathy Forbes considers education to be her top priority. She’s concerned like many parents in Michigan about the deep cuts to our public education which has caused schools to make cuts to staff and services children need to be successful learners. She will work to make sure schools are funded and teachers have the support they need from their state government, making sure they are treated like professionals.

Another important priority for the 34th district is jobs. Forbes wants to stop the flow of our tax dollars going to large corporations with no guarantee they will use that money to hire more people. She supports the Michigan 2020 plan to provide a way for high school graduates to receive the education or training they need to be competitive in the job market.

To get involved with her campaign and learn more, you can visit her website. Once you do, it will be obvious who our next state senator from the 34th district needs to be. Vote for Cathy Forbes on November 4.
