They need someone who has worked hard in their district and will work just as hard for them to bring in results on issues like Education, good clean water in every home, affordable health care and car Insurance rates, Christina’s Christian Pro-life, free speech, 2nd Amendment, stance and love to preserve the American family values & our Constitution make her an excellent Republican State Representative Candidate for our 550th district here in Michigan, delivering on her promises. We the people need to demand change from our federal and local governments. Christina Fitchett-Hickson is the Candidate who can make it happen!
