Jody LaMacchia is a candidate for House Representative in Michigan's 46th district: Addison Twp, Brandon Twp, Orion Twp, Oxford Twp, and a portion of Oakland Charter Twp.
Team Jody has continued to stay busy SHOWING UP at events in our district that matter to our neighbors. We have attended forums on important topics affecting our state such as road repair and the toxic green ooze in Madison Heights. These issues represent a larger problem – too often corporate polluters aren’t paying for the messes they make and taxpayers are left footing the bill. Here are just some of the things we’ve been up to...
We attended the 4th Annual Women’s March in Lansing with the theme our team fully embraces and exemplifies: Empowered Women Empower Women. I was given a wonderful tour of International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 58. Strong relationships with our Union brothers and sisters are important to me because I believe that their fight is our fight as it benefits all of us and I’m looking forward to fighting alongside workers for fair wages and affordable healthcare once I get to Lansing.
Team Jody attended our second Blessings in a Backpack Trivia Night and I was so happy to be a sponsor of such an important organization. We attended WomanSpeak at Upland Hills where we were heartened by the presentation of how far women have come throughout history but how we still have further to go to achieve full equality.
I had a great chat over coffee with Orion Township Supervisor Chris Barnett and was proudly endorsed by Oxford Village President Joe Frost. We dropped in to say hi at Orion Neighborhood TV’s 10th Annual Food Drive for Oxford Orion Fish Food Pantry. We had a blast at our a Cabin Fever Euchre Party (my partner and I came in 3rd!) and we collected bags and bags of food for the FISH food drive. We had a fun Valentine-themed postcard party where we came together to write hundreds of postcards to send throughout the district. Michigan Radio/NPR came to the postcard party and interviewed me for an upcoming segment on the election and the race for the seat in our district – I'll be sure to let you know when it airs!
Join us for our first canvass of the new year, our "Road to 2020 Canvass Kickoff" on Feb. 29 at noon. We will meet meet at Johnny Black's Public House in Orion Township. It will be followed by our first "Out and About with Jody." I believe in showing up everywhere in the district. For that reason, we will have monthly events in different corners of the district so that everyone can take part and we can show love to all of our great local businesses and favorite spots.~Jody
