KRESTA TRAIN ANNOUNCES CAMPAIGN FOR STATE REP. JAMES LOWERS’ SEAT

September 15, 2017

Democrat Kresta Train has announced her 2018 candidacy for the Michigan House 70th District.

The 44-year-old teacher, former small-business owner, wife, and mother has cast herself as the candidate that will bring common sense to the Michigan legislature.  During her speech at her announcement meeting, Train said “It is time for common folks with common sense to step out of the shadows and into meaningful roles in our local, state, and Federal government.”

“The key to a successful democracy is open, candid dialogue between voters and elected officials, and the conversation starts here,” Train said.

She is calling for tax dollars to be put back into our Montcalm/Gratiot schools, police and fire departments, and health care.

Train will also be campaigning on raising the minimum wage to $12 per hour and repurposing tax revenue previously earmarked for corporate-welfare to subsidize small-businesses for the added payroll burden, which would act as an economic stimulus and provide more local jobs in the 70th district of Michigan.

Train stated that she wants to stop reckless government spending of the tax dollars of District 70’s residents and “put that money to work for the local people in Montcalm and Gratiot counties that want a fair chance to work hard for a better life.”  She added that the wellbeing of every resident the district is her number one priority.
