GRAND RAPIDS, MICH., – Lynn Afendoulis, candidate for congress in MI-3, announced that two Kent County Commissioners, six Township Supervisors, the Rockford Mayor, and two state Representatives are endorsing her candidacy. With the addition of these two state representatives, nearly two-thirds of the statehouse Republican caucus is supporting Lynn. While others in the primary have looked to Washington, DC, for their support, Lynn has built a broad coalition of supporters from Michigan, and it’s the people of Michigan who will decide the outcome of the election in six weeks, not Washington, DC.
Lynn said, “I have had the real pleasure of working with these officials while representing most of them in Lansing. They are tremendous public servants and do their jobs with honor and integrity. I will continue to work with them in Washington as I fight for the values of West Michigan that I believe are under attack from the liberal left. I will fight for them as we look to put an end to illegal immigration, stand up to China, make the 2017 tax reforms permanent and get our economy back on track.”
“Justin Amash has been AWOL his entire term of office,” said Kent County Commissioner Ted Vonk. “Lynn Afendoulis has proven she knows what it is to be an engaged, effective legislator who knows her district and will represent it well.”
“Lynn Afendoulis is a proven conservative and a true advocate for West Michigan. She will go to Washington to help President Trump build on the success he has had during his first three years in office. We know what Lynn’s record looks like – and we’re proud of that record. Firsthand, we have seen Lynn’s helping people and being a fighter for the values of her district. The people of the third would be well suited to send her to DC on their behalf, and we encourage the voters to join this group in supporting her,” Steven Grimm, Cannon Township Supervisor.

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.
