    URGENT: THE FILING DEADLINE IS UPON US: I NEED YOUR HELP!

    Last week I officially announced I am running for the 22nd State Senate seat and the first campaign finance filing deadline is THIS THURSDAY, JULY 20TH. I still need $8,000 to reach our fundraising goal of $50,000. Will you please consider an immediate donation to help us reach our first fundraising goal and show my opponent our STRONG conservative support.

    I believe the focus of our state government should be simple: freedomfamilyfinance and fundamentals!  We need a government that sets the framework and then gets out of the way.  This allows our people and our businesses to thrive and creates the best possible environment for success and freedom in our country.  The family is at the heart and most important part of this equation. Raising our children and working hard to guarantee Michigan is the best it can be is the key to ensuring the success of future generations.

    As your state representative, I have honored the principles I first ran on; I voted against raising gas taxes and increased registration fees; and voted against tax breaks that picked winners and losers.  I have sponsored legislation encouraging mothers to choose life, supporting our law enforcement officers, combating auto insurance fraud and reducing government regulations on occupational licenses. Looking ahead there are many critical issues facing the people of Livingston and Washtenaw counties that will come before the next legislative session.  Issues being discussed at the federal level, including health care, will have a direct impact on our families and job providers.

    I am fortunate to be in a position where I can devote my time and energy serving my community. Keeping Livingston and Washtenaw counties a wonderful place to live, work and play for future generations are the cornerstones of my campaign.  I look forward to meeting and hearing from our citizens, tackling the challenges ahead and a positive campaign.

    I thank you in advance for your support! Your donation is greatly appreciated. You can either donate online at www.lanatheis.com/donate or send a check made payable to “The Committee to Elect Lana Theis” to 620 N. Kane Road, Webberville, MI 48892.

    God Bless,

    Lana Theis

  • STATE REPRESENTATIVE LANA THEIS ANNOUNCES CANDIDACY FOR 22ND STATE SENATE SEAT

    Letterhead-page-001.jpg

    State Representative Lana Theis of Brighton announced her candidacy for the 22nd state senate seat today, which covers all of Livingston County and portions of Washtenaw County.  Current State Senator, Joe Hune, is term-limited and cannot seek re-election.

    “I am excited and proud to announce my candidacy for state senate. I have gained a tremendous understanding of the complexities of state government over my two terms as state representative.  More importantly I know how critical it is to understand the issues that come before me.  I am proud of my reputation of digging deep into the issues; learning all I can; and making informed, educated votes,” Representative Theis said.

    First elected in 2015, Representative Theis serves the 42nd House District in Livingston County.  From 2008-2014, Theis served as Brighton Township treasurer.  Additionally, she has served as the chair of the Brighton Area Fire Authority, the Livingston County Republican Party and the Livingston County Treasurers’ Association.  She was also a member of the Brighton Township Planning Commission.

    “Throughout my time in public service, I have worked tirelessly to make government at all levels efficient, responsive and more accountable to my constituents and the people of Michigan.  From fighting over-reaching local township zoning ordinances, to testifying in Lansing before state committees as a private citizen, and now as a member of some of those same committees; I have spent more than 10 years working to reduce the size of government and fighting for the hard-working taxpayers of our great state.” Theis stated.

    “I believe the focus of our state government should be simple: freedom, family, finance and fundamentals!  We need a government that sets the framework and then gets out of the way.  This allows our people and our businesses to thrive and creates the best possible environment for success and freedom in our country.  The family is at the heart and most important part of this equation. Raising our children and working hard to guarantee Michigan is the best it can be is the key to ensuring the success of future generations.” Theis continued.

    “As your state representative, I have honored the principles I first ran on; I voted against raising gas taxes and increased registration fees; and voted against tax breaks that picked winners and losers.  I have sponsored legislation encouraging mothers to choose life, supporting our law enforcement officers, combating auto insurance fraud and reducing government regulations on occupational licenses. Looking ahead there are many critical issues facing the people of Livingston and Washtenaw counties that will come before the next legislative session.  Issues being discussed at the federal level, including health care, will have a direct impact on our families and job providers.”

    “I am fortunate to be in a position where I can devote my time and energy serving my community. Keeping Livingston and Washtenaw counties a wonderful place to live, work and play for future generations are the cornerstones of my campaign.  I look forward to meeting and hearing from our citizens, tackling the challenges ahead and a positive campaign.” Theis concluded.

    Theis is hosting a campaign kick-off fundraiser on Thursday, July 27th from 6:00-8:00 pm at Triple Diamond Ranch in Howell. For additional information, contact Meghan Reckling at meghan@lanatheis.com or visit  www.lanatheis.com
