Erika Geiss is the current State Senator for the 6th Senate District and is running to serve as the State Senator for the newly drawn 1st Senate District. Erika has a proven track record of fighting for Michiganders and knows that the secret to building a stronger Michigan is through preserving the freedom to vote, economic justice such as paid family leave, job development, investing in education and infrastructure, and ensuring that our representatives in Lansing work for us—the people.
As a second-term state senator, she will continue fight for public education, access to job training and career readiness programs, workers’ rights, and economic security for Michigan's households. When it comes down to it, her priorities are the people of our communities and state. Geiss has never been afraid to stand up for the people and communities that she serves, and that is something that will never cease.
During her tenure as a State Representative (2015-2018) and as a current State Senator, she has consistently prioritized education, jobs, economic growth, and healthy families and communities--all rooted in equity and justice. There is still much work to be done to improve public education and its funding, access to job training and career readiness, workers’ rights, and economic security and justice.
She wants to remove barriers to success for all of our residents, and ensure that our communities have the funding to service residents and be healthy places for people to live throughout their lives. She knows that progress requires a willingness to work as a team and to see how these priorities intersect. Geiss is diligent and committed to the people and communities that she represents and serves with integrity and substance, and is visionary in her approach to policy and legislation.
