Battles For and Against Democracy

Jim Townsend is a third-term Michigan House legislator representing Royal Oak and Madison Heights in Lansing 

Jim will address current threats to democracy in the U.S., and the need to better protect and empower the people by fostering safe and vibrant communities.  To that end, expanding opportunities for all through investments in key public goods, such as public education and infrastructure, is a must. A champion of public transportation, Rep. Townsend is currently working to restore public trust at the state and local levels by enacting substantial reforms to make our transportation system more transparent and accountable, and defeat efforts to fund the system through draconian cuts in public services, unexisting sources of funds and cuts in programs to help the poor.
