Victory! Joey Andrews advances to November election

Thank you to all of our amazing supporters for getting us through the primary! Here's a message from Joey:

We did it. We won. Thank you.

From everyone on our team, thank you for your support and hard work. We won tonight because of you; every door knocked, every phone dialed, every dollar raised, we did it with your help. We won because our campaign prioritizes people, building a platform for their success, and siding with them over profiteers, politicians, and corporations. We did it because building a better life for ALL of us is the lifeblood of this campaign; our community has spoken, and they resoundingly agree.

So again, thank you. For your vote of confidence in this campaign and movement. I am honored to be chosen to fight to represent you, because this isn't about me, it's about all of us. And I believe that if we work together, a future with healthcare for all, justice for all, and greater freedom is coming. A future where your skin color, sexual orientation, gender identity, level of income, level of ability, or immigration status doesn't determine your value as a person, your humanity grants you that value.

When we fight, we win. I can't wait to represent you. Let's give them hell this fall.

-Joey

Exciting bill to create single-payer healthcare in Michigan

The Detroit Metro Times has reported on Representative Yousef Rabhi's exciting new bill to finally bring a moral and sensible healthcare system to our state. Here's some of the report:

"The MiCare plan unveiled today by Rep. Yousef Rabhi (D-Ann Arbor) would provide state residents with comprehensive care, including dental, mental health, and prescription drug coverage while eliminating health care premiums, co-pays, and deductibles."

Our campaign emphatically support Rep. Rabhi's legislation; it is a breath of fresh air in a political climate that treats healthcare as a privilege, not a right. No one should be punished for slipping and falling, and this bill is a huge step in the right direction. It also will introduce $40 billion dollars in savings for our state, money we can invest in repairing our roads and educating our children. 

Check out this exciting opportunity to bring Michigan into the 21st century. We're excited to support this legislation in Lansing next year.

Joey Andrews Officially on the Ballot

Our campaign is pleased to announce that we are officially on the ballot! Here is a message from Joey:

This is an exciting moment for our campaign. We are now officially on the ballot for the 79th district!

I could take a lot of time and write about the road that led us to this moment, but I think instead I will just say thank you. From the bottom of my heart, from every member of our amazing team, thank you. For every door you have already knocked, every phone call you have already made; for yourgenerous donations, for all of the time spent volunteering, for your emotional investments in this campaign, thank you.

The best part of this moment is that it is only the beginning. There is a long road ahead of us, but I truly believe that if we keep fighting, we will win. Because this campaign is so much more than a name on a ballot. It is a movement for change, to bring community values to Lansing, and to make the 79th District and the state of Michigan work for everyone who lives here, not just the wealthy and powerful few.

Will you come join our movement for change? Everyone has a role, and we need your help. Help us celebrate this milestone! Share this website and donation link with your friends in the 79th!
