GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. – Today, Lynn Afendoulis, candidate for Congress in Michigan’s Third Congressional District, filed her petition signatures with the Michigan Secretary of State, the second candidate to do that ahead of the April 21st deadline. The Afendoulis campaign plans to file a supplemental batch of petitions prior to April 21st as well.
“Our West Michigan communities have thirsted for strong, engaged representation for years now — which I’ve seen as a community leader and volunteer and as a businesswoman. I believe it is imperative that we work with President Trump to continue to end the flow of illegal immigration at our borders, curtail the outflow of jobs and opportunity to China and other nations, put Americans to work, and protect the unborn. As the next representative, I will make sure I understand and represent the needs and will of our West Michigan communities,” Afendoulis said.
Afendoulis added, “As the granddaughter of immigrants, the fact that I am now able to run for office shows that the American Dream is alive and well. And the American Dream is alive and well because of the sacrifices of so many to protect this great country. I am so grateful to them, and so honored to be a candidate. I look forward to sharing my message with the voters of the 3rd Congressional District in the coming months.”
Lynn is running for Congress because she believes we are fighting for the very fabric of who and what we are–the things that President Trump is fighting for and that attracted her grandparents to this country. She wants to protect the rule of law and represent the people of the 3rd District in a way that they’ve been yearning for – with integrity, engagement, and effectiveness. And to show her children that this is all worth fighting for.
