Overview

Tom Barrett has been bought by his wealthy and corporate donors, and sold out actual Michiganders as a result.

Summary

Voters across the district, but especially in the Lansing Media Market need to watch TV ads, and district-wide OTT subscribers and YouTube watchers need to see ads that show how Tom Barrett can’t be trusted to look out for Michiganders. (BACK UP)

  1. Nearly 90% of Barrett’s contributions in the state legislature are from Political Action Committees (PACs) including from corporate PACs.
  2. He’s voted against allowing drug companies to be held accountable when they sell defective and dangerous drugs, even dangerous and abused opioids like OxyContin.
  3. The DeVos family, notorious anti-public education activists, were Barrett’s largest individual donors in his legislative career and gave him nearly $50,000 in one day in this campaign. In October 2021 Barrett sponsored a bill enshrining the family’s key policy objective, a voucher program that would divert public money to private institutions.
