In November the people of the 33rd State Senate District of Michigan, which includes Clare, Isabella, Gratiot, Mecosta and Montcalm Counties will have the opportunity to elect Fred Sprague to represent them in Lansing. Fred doesn’t let raindrops stop him from spending time out campaigning and meeting his constituents. It’s important to get the message out the people of the 33rd district have a better choice for state senator.

Fred is a husband, father, and grandfather. He works in the education field as a licensed professional counselor. Fred Sprague’s background in education gives him the expertise to know that our current government in Lansing consistently makes the wrong choices for Northern Michigan’s schools, and that means fewer opportunities for our children to develop into successful adults. He understands that our economy will improve only when everyone has the opportunity to be successful.

On the issues Fred Sprague places a priority on education. He has a plan to improve education for Michigan that includes every classroom has access to up to date technology, effective professional development for teachers, make early childhood education more accessible for pre-schoolers, and ensure more high school graduates can afford to go to college. Having an educated workforce is part of another issue Sprague wants to work on when he’s elected to the Michigan State Senate. Economic development is crucial for more people to get back to work. Fred Sprague supports raising the minimum wage and helping small business. Finally, Sprague feels strongly that we must protect the water of the Great Lakes and our environment from industry that would damage it for profit.
