Hi, I’m Terry Sabo

 

Four years ago, Muskegon county residents demanded change when they elected me County Commissioner, defeating a five-term Republican incumbent. It’s been an honor to serve both you and my community.

 

As your County Commissioner, I have worked to bring the people of Muskegon tangible results, including: solving a decades long problem by building a new County Jail and Juvenile Transition Center, emphasized diversity in the workplace which resulted in more women and minorities hired in leadership positions in our county government, passed a county resolution supporting Michigan's prevailing wage law for skilled workers, pushed for countywide environmental sustainability, and have been instrumental in the continued development of the Port of Muskegon.

 

Now, it’s time to bring this passion for change to our State Legislature. The Republican-dominated legislature in Lansing has consistently attacked our Muskegon community, most notably our hardworking families. We need a State Representative who is willing to stand up for progressive values, working families, women and minority rights, and our environment, yet at the same time be willing to work across the aisle to accomplish positive results for Muskegon. In Lansing, I will fight for your needs, not the needs of multimillion-dollar corporations. I feel that I am the only candidate that can do that, and my track record as your County Commissioner proves that I will. As I have always said, it's time we put people before politics. Please remember to vote on November 8th.

 

I’m proud of the work we’ve done together, but we’re just getting started.
