Violent Crime has plagued our communities for too long. Citizens deserve to feel safe in their homes, at work, and while carrying out daily activities. Our police should be fully funded and crime should not be tolerated.

His service in the Marines changed his life forever, and for the better. Steven served 4 years in the Marine Corps as a Logistics Specialist at Camp Pendleton in Southern California. He was assigned to the 1stSurveillance, Reconnaissance, Intelligence Group (SRIG), ensuring all combat essential equipment was operational.

Steven has enjoyed a successful business career by investing in any businesses’ most valuable asset: people. He offered individuals the opportunity to learn a trade and build a career. Through his businesses, Steven has given back to his community by contributing to many local events, charities, and organizations.
Steven is not only a veteran and businessman, he is a patriot who loves his country and believes that America is exceptional. He has seen the American Dream become out of reach for too many due to rising inflation, increasing crime, poor education, erosion of freedoms, economic stagnation, high taxes and regulations. It is for these reasons that Steven has decided to run for United States Congress to challenge the establishment and fight for hard working Americans.
Issues Protecting the American Dream here in Michigan
Every American should have the opportunity to live their own American Dream. Upward mobility can be better realized with a growing economy and more quality jobs. Lessening the barrier to entry for new entrepreneurs is vital to creating an economy where anyone with a good idea and hard work can start a business, grow, and thrive. Congress must eliminate burdensome regulations, bureaucratic delays, and reduce the tax burden so that businesses can continue to compete in a global marketplace.
In 2021, the United States saw more illegal immigration across our Southern border than ever before – more than 2 million entrants. Our national sovereignty and our national security is at stake. Drug dealers, terrorists, and human traffickers have all used our weak border security to harm Americans. We must enhance funding for our Border Patrol and Customs Enforcement, end “catch and release” policies, and enhance deterrents to enter the United States illegally.
Michiganders deserve to keep more of their hard-earned money. Our federal income taxes are too high, too complicated, and unfair. Reducing taxes and closing loopholes should be matched with eliminating wasteful spending and balancing our budget. Taxes must be flatter and fairer for all Americans.
Education should always be focused on student success. Parents need to be empowered with diverse options to choose the best schools and programs for their children. We should greatly reduce our federal Department of Education, sending more money directly to states and local school districts where the needs of students can be met more effectively.
America’s healthcare system is under tremendous pressure from high costs, staffing shortages, and a decrease in care providers. Providers and customers should be given more flexibility and care options. To increase access for every American we must lower costs, to do this we need to reduce onerous regulation, increase competition, end mandates, and improve price transparency.
America can preserve peace through strength by ensuring that we maintain the most capable military force on Earth. One of the few express duties of our federal government is to provide national security. Congress must properly fund our military while at the same time provide oversight to reduce ineffective spending.
