Elissa Slotkin on Technology

 

 


Real federal dollars for infrastructure on roads and water

Q: Is there an accomplishment you have to have--other than health care--in order to earn reelection?

REP.-ELECT ELISSA SLOTKIN: Yeah, we have to move on infrastructure and not just talk about it but actually put money behind it. In Michigan we need once in a generation investment in our infrastructure. Our roads but our water. I live 15 minutes from Flint, Michigan. We have a water issue going on in our state. So, that's a place I think we have real bipartisan opportunity. People have talked the talk and now we need to walk the walk with real federal dollars.

Q: There's all these investigations [of Trump]-will they cloud the big picture on substance?

SLOTKIN: If we can't provide for people and help their pocketbook or their kids, we do not deserve their vote. So we can walk and chew gum, right? We can protect American values and hold accountability for the executive branch. But if we can't do things on health care and infrastructure, we're going to lose people. Especially in the Midwest.

Laser-focus on fixing crumbling roads & water infrastructure

Q: PRIORITIES: What are your top three national legislative priorities and how would you address them?

A: I have spent my career protecting our country, and my goal, if elected, is to protect our livelihood here in Michigan. To do that, we must be laser-focused on the issues that impact our pocketbooks and our kids: lowering the cost of healthcare and prescription drugs and fixing our crumbling roads and water infrastructure. But beyond the issues, I have made it a priority to bring a true sense of public service back to our Congress. In my three tours in Iraq, I was never asked about my political party. The only thing that mattered was the mission. I commit to bringing that same mission-focus to Congress.
