Monday , 5, September 2016 Leave a comment

Michigan’s 99th District includes Isabella and a portion of Midland Counties. On November 8, 2016, the people of this district will have the opportunity to send a new legislator to Lansing who will work for the people of his district, and not for the special interests. That candidate is Bryan Mielke. A life-long resident of Michigan, Mielke has lived in Mount Pleasant for thirty five years with his wife and two daughters. He is seeking your vote on November 8, 2016 to represent the 99th district in the Michigan State Legislature.

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, transparency, 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 made public schools in the state dangerously underfunded – a crisis created by Republican leadership that’s lasted for six years. Corruption within the state government that goes all the way to the Governor’s office has created the most secretive FOIA-proof system of lawmaking that the country has ever seen. Mielke wants to fight this problem and make Michigan government transparent for the people of the state. Tax cuts for the rich and large corporations do not put money back into the economy and they don’t create jobs. Electing Bryan Mielke will send someone to Lansing dedicated to reversing damaging tax increases on Michigan’s struggling citizens – Seniors and the working poor. 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.

Bryan Mielke is endorsed by AFSCME Michigan Council 25, American Federation of Teachers, Central Michigan Labor Council, International Union of Operating Engineers, Laborers’ Local 1098, Michigan AFL-CIO, Michigan Association of Police Organizations, Michigan Clean Water Action, Michigan Education Association, Michigan Nurses Association, Michigan Professional Fire Fighter’s Union, Michigan Regional Council of Carpenters & Millwrights, Sierra Club – Michigan Chapter, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Michigan, SEIU Michigan State Council, UA Local 85 Plumbers, Steamfitters & HVACR Service Tech’s, UAW Region 1D, and the United Transportation Union.

Bryan Mielke, his family, and volunteers are busy campaigning in the 99th District. To find out more about Bryan Mielke, you can visit his website, facebook page, and twitter. Bryan Mielke will be out canvassing through this weekend. Register to vote by October 11, 2016 and vote for Bryan Mielke on November 8, 2016.
