TREVOR's PLAN - Fighting for Social Security - Get the facts
GRAND RAPIDS, MICH - Former Governor Jennifer M. Granholm and former Lt. Gov. John D. Cherry Jr. today formally endorsed West Michigan native Trevor Thomas for the United States Congress in Michigan's 3rd District. Thomas filed paperwork to launch his bid last month. An official campaign kick off will take place on March 10.
"From day one Trevor has been a fighter for fairness and opportunity," said former Governor Jennifer M. Granholm. "From the newsroom to the halls of Congress, Trevor has the experience and passion to get results on the issues critical to Michigan families. This is a campaign of inclusion that will stand up and represent all the voices of West Michigan and I am proud to support and be a part of it."
"Trevor's parents worked a combined 60 years on the lines of General Motors so he could have the chance to go to college, and now he is fighting for us all in his bid for Congress," said former Lt. Gov. John D. Cherry Jr. "Trevor has worked to pass major federal legislation in support of our troops and he put party aside to get the job done. This is the fresh and progressive leadership we need today."
The first in his family to go to college, Thomas graduated from Grand Valley State University. He worked as a reporter at WGVU-AM (NPR) and a news producer at WOOD-TV 8 (NBC) for five years, before joining Governor Jennifer Granholm’s successful re-election campaign in 2006 and serving in her executive office. Over his career, Thomas has worked on many important state and national issues, including the successful repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell."
"It’s time for us to return to the values of Jerry Ford, who put politics aside to do what was best for our country. My parents’ generation helped put the world on wheels and furniture in our living rooms. Now it is our time to stand up and fight for Michigan families to ensure they get a fair shake."
