On the Issues
As a public high school school graduate, Jeremy is committed to providing funding and support for public education. Jeremy and House Democrats continue to offer solutions to strengthen public education and fight against state interference and disinvestment in the classroom. He seeks to empower hard-working public school teachers to successfully educate Michigan students. Jeremy is also working to dismantle the DeVos education agenda and hold for-profit charter schools accountable. Charter schools divert the tax dollars that otherwise would go to traditional public schools and can farm out their financial oversight and accountability to for-profit education management companies that aren't subjected to the Freedom of Information Act. Taxpayers have no ability to track the tax dollars they use and how they utilize them. That’s why Jeremy worked with his House colleagues to introduce the School Fact Act which would add transparency to how charter schools operate.
Jeremy joined House and Senate Democrats to introduce the Health Care Bill of Rights to keep critical parts of the Affordable Care Act in place in Michigan in the event that national Republicans dismantle the critical care patients need. Democratic efforts would protect people with pre-existing conditions, prevent massive rate hikes, protect essential health benefits and prevent annual or lifetime health care coverage caps. Jeremy is also working to take on excessive prescription drug costs. He remains a staunch supporter of a woman’s right to control her own medical decisions and will not support legislation to restrict reproductive care.
