102nd district State House Representative Michele Hoitenga has announced her candidacy for the State Senate.
Hoitenga made the announcement on her Facebook page Friday.
In my role as a State Representative, I've fought an escalation of government overreach - through mandates, executive orders, and the use of departments for political warfare - on a scale we've never seen before. Likewise, we've witnessed the heavy hand of bureaucracy shuttering businesses, making it more difficult to recruit employees, and holding jobs hostage for those in the workforce who don’t agree to let the government make their medical decisions for them. As a mom, I was horrified as concerned parents were labeled domestic terrorists. As a Michigander, I watched as those in power practiced a do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do form of government.
These are the types of things I've been fighting against as State Representative, and it would be my privilege to continue that fight in the Michigan Senate.
Hoitenga was first elected to the Michigan House of Representatives in November 2016.
