• Jobs & Economy

    Fred’s top priorities remain local job creation and improving our economy right here in Michigan.  Local businesses are working hard to lead the way for our state’s recovery, but many of the policies coming out of Washington are making matters more difficult.  Fred is fighting to put a permanent halt on the Obama Administration’s aggressive regulatory assault, which not only threatens to slow growth, but to destroy jobs and raise everyday costs for Michigan families. Instead, Fred is focused on advancing an organic, pro-growth approach that encourages businesses to create jobs and reinvest in our communities.

    Fred’s legislation to strengthen the pharmaceutical supply chain was signed into law by President Obama in 2013, which will streamline regulations, protect patients, and preserve local jobs. Fred has also worked to improve local education and job training, advanced bipartisan legislation to improve Michigan’s crumbling infrastructure, and supported our local manufacturing jobs.

    Improving the job and economic outlook for those right here in Southwest Michigan will continue to be a bipartisan effort of which Fred is a leader. Fred believes that by working together, we can make Southwest Michigan a hub for innovation and growth for the 21st Century.

    As a result of his bipartisan leadership, Fred was proudly endorsed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
