“State by state voters are starting to elect Democrats to every level of government in order to safeguard our democratic rights. In Michigan we also intend to elect many more progressive Democrats to government positions.

As a registered nurse and educator, Wiejaczka has worked tirelessly under demanding conditions to advocate for her patients, their families and her students. She cares about people and will advocate for the needs of the district when she gets to Lansing.
