Bryan Mielke is a life-long resident of Michigan and lived in Mount Pleasant for thirty three years. He is seeking your vote on November 4 to represent the 99th district in the Michigan House. Bryan is a small business owner and raised two daughters with his wife of thirty years. The Michigan 99th District includes Isabella and a portion of Midland Counties.

Mielke earned his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in computer science and mathematics at Central Michigan University. In 1991 he founded his business Diversified Computer Group, or DCG in Mount Pleasant. This company develops software to monitor various energy and mineral systems. Bryan Mielke will use his knowledge as a small business owner in Lansing to promote healthy job growth in Michigan.

The three main issues Bryan Mielke wants to focus on in the Michigan Legislature are education, tax fairness , and creating more jobs for the state. Mielke is married to a public school employee and raised two children in the public school system. Lansing’s cuts in education have devastated the state’s school system. It’s not possible to educate Michigan’s children for a competitive job market when our schools struggle to stay open. That needs to change, and Bryam Mielke will work to provide the funding our public schools need to not only stay open, but employ the best professional education staff and the best education our children deserve. On taxes, Bryan Mielke wants to reverse the tax raises the Republicans in Lansing put on those who can afford them least – the poor, the elderly and the middle class. Tax cuts for the rich and large corporations do not put money back into the economy and they don’t create jobs. Michigan is still at the bottom for job growth in the United States. Electing Bryan Mielke will send someone to Lansing dedicated to reversing these damaging tax increases on Michigan’s struggling citizens. With tax relief and better funded schools, job creation will be easier to accomplish. Mielke wants legislation passed that will keep jobs in Michigan, by ending tax breaks to companies that send jobs out of the state. Supporting small business is the right thing to do, because that is where real job creation begins.

Bryan Mielke is endorsed by Michigan Professional Fire Fighters Unions, Michigan Education Association, Michigan AFL-CIO, United Auto Workers (UAW) Region 1-D, Michigan Nurses Association, UA Local 85, Sierra Club, MI Regional Carpenters, International Union of Operating Engineers, Teamsters, Laborers’ Local 1098, Planned Parenthood, SEIU, AFCSME Local 1568, AFCSME Michigan Council 25, Isabella County Democratic Party, Michigan Federation of College Democrats, Midland County Democratic Party, Tri-County Building Trades Association, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, and the American Federation of Teachers.
