hi everyone!

Thank you all for your support during this brief but promising campaign. I entered the race for Michigan House Representative from an understanding that we need public leadership that has the ability to make the state work better for everyone by a deep sense of respect for democracy and a vision for seeing the possible in the impossible. I continue to believe we need public leadership that deeply respects democracy and sees the possible in the impossible.

At this time, running a two year campaign isn’t financially feasible for me and I believe I would better apply my skills to endeavors closer to art, education and culture while still in politics. The campaign has taught me a lot about electoral politics, which I hope to use in future endeavors. Looking at the ways art and political campaigns might intersect to produce greater political imagination remains deeply interesting and something I hope to continue in the future.
Thank you, again, for your support!

Best,

stephen garrett dewyer

two critical questions for the future of public transit in south-east Michigan:
who is the leadership for the Regional Transit Authority (RTA)? How can STRUCTURAL changes to the leadership for the RTA increase transparency and democracy?

voting may take just one day, but campaigns can help change the course of political history.

I was glad to have the opportunity to speak about the water and environmental concerns facing Detroit, Hamtramck and Michigan last night at the International Joint Commission (IJC) public meeting about the Great Lakes. I'm not in the video because I had to set down the camera, but there are still some interesting speakers featured. Privatization and austerity destroys public trust and the ecosystem.

hi everyone! As we're working on a plan for the Michigan State House District 4, we took a look at the 2015 American Community Survey Estimates by the U.S. Census Bureau to gather critical information about the challenges facing our district. Poverty and quality education attainment remain persistent challenges.

For some perspective:

1) the U.S.high school graduation rate was 82 % in 2013-14 according the U.S. Department of Education.

2) the U.S. real (inflation adjusted) median household income was $51,939 in 2013 according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
