• 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  Fred championed the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act that reformed our broken and outdated tax code. The positive effects are being felt already, with more jobs, higher paychecks, and a stronger economy.

    Additionally, Fred’s bipartisan legislation to strengthen the pharmaceutical supply chain was signed into law by President Obama in 2013, which streamlines regulations, protects patients, and preserves 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.
