Why you should support David Benac

We are living in a historic moment. We are confronted by a political system that has been corrupted by corporate wealth and influence.  But, the people are ready for new ideas and innovative solutions.  I pledge that if you elect me to Congress, every action I take and every decision I make will be for the good of the people of Michigan's Sixth Congressional District and the United States.

Health care, clean water, air, soil, and food free from toxins, safe workplaces, and equality under the law are human rights. These rights may not be enshrined in the Constitution, but they are fundamental to human life.  We must ensure the human rights of all people.  

We must also protect the dignity of all of members of our communities. Everyone who works full time must have a living wage. Education, whether academic, vocational, or other, must never throw hard-working students into a life of debt. Let's embrace and celebrate the diversity that makes the United States a unique and extraordinary nation. 

To do this we need good government. To return our nation to the people we must expel the corporate interests that corrupt the system, remove corporate cash from our elections, and end gerrymandering. In the process, let's embrace our role as stewards of the Earth. There are no jobs, no nations, no communities, and no people on a dead planet. Our ethical code must include a commitment to leave the planet in a better way than we found it.

  • Carol Decker endorsed

    “The current status of our government at a federal level requires a person who will speak truth to power regarding multiple issues (climate, healthcare, education, fair taxation, national security, diversity, jobs, safety nets and entitlements, to name a few). David is a progressive thinker and a person of strong character who will not compromise his values. We need his voice to speak to Washington on our behalf.”

    “For the better part of a year, my fiance, Hon. Jeremy Hathcock, and I have laid awake at night discussing what it would take to beat Fred Upton. The answer we always came to, during each and every talk, was, "David." Well, David answered the call to even more public service than he already does and he's running for Congress! I don't care where you're from, if you want to stick it to the Republicans who want to take away healthcare, women's rights, environmental protections, meals on wheels, the arts, etc, then throw a few bucks David's way. This campaign is going to cost a fortune. Upton is funded by the Koch brothers and more dark money than almost any other candidate. Let's show them where they can shove their corporate money. Check out Benacformichigan.com to see why Jeremy and I are so excited about David becoming our next Congressman.”
