Rarely do we have the opportunity to truly know the values, beliefs and character behind a candidate running for an office. I am honored to personally know, volunteered and advocated for public education with Andrea Schroeder. I first met Andrea eleven years ago at Clarkston Community Schools PTA meetings where she reported the potential effect Lansing legislation would have on our schools.
Over these past eleven years, I have witnessed Andrea's positive change in our community. She led the charge to eradicate the legally sold synthetic cannabis "K-2" from local gas stations and party stores. When too many young high school drivers would "push the pedal" at the Flemings Lake road yellow light to get to school and cause accidents, it was Andrea Schroeder who planned the affordable left turn arrow solution And collaborated funding with the school district, township and road commission. And if you see "Proud Supporter of Clarkston PTA" stickers at the doors and windows of local businesses, that was Andrea Schroeder's idea for our PTA council to recognize them for supporting our PTA fundraisers. Andrea Schroeder is a "can-do" woman who cares for our families and community!
Andrea Schroeder has represented us at Michigan PTA as our legislative representative, is a member of the Michigan Political Leadership Program from Michigan State University, currently serves as Trustee on the Independence Township Board and is a member of the Clarkston Optimist Club. She has been endorsed as the best candidate for the 43rd District by L. Brooks Patterson - Oakland County Executive, Gail Haines - retiring State Representative from our 43rd District, Tom Middleton - Oakland County Board Commissioners, the Detroit Regional Chamber, The Detroit Free Press, The Detroit News, Michigan Retailers Association, the Michigan Credit Union League and Michigan Agripac - friends of Agriculture. Andrea Schroeder has the experienced leadership to represent us in developing public policy.
For these reasons, and many more, I endorse Andrea Schroeder to represent you and me in Lansing. Please support Andrea Schroeder on the Republican ballot at our Tuesday, August 5 primary election!
