Bill Jordan for State Senate
I am running for Michigan State Senate District 31 representing Bay, Tuscola and Lapeer counties.
I have been a school counselor, coach and a school board member. I have seen firsthand how small-town Michigan has been ignored by state government.
As a educator and coach, I know our young people are being shortchanged by leadership in Lansing. That needs to change. We need a State Senator who will stand up to Lansing’s professional politicians and defend our way of life.
let's win together
“Our way of life is under attack in Lansing. Professional politicians can’t solve this mess they created. It’s going to take leadership and hard work to win for middle-class families. I am a coach and a leader. Send me to Lansing to win for you and your family!”
— Bill Jordan, Democratic Candidate for Michigan State Senate District 31
