Representative Driskell is well deserving of this honor. I had the pleasure of serving with her for six years on theSaline City Council and she is indeed, an impressive individual who wants only to do the best for her constituents.

Driskell will work to restore the education funds stolen by the Republican cabal in the state house and senate. She is dedicated to enhancing our communities and the general good unlike the Republican caucus in legislature which is simply interested in catering to the Michigan Chamber of Commerce and Koch brothers.
