We cannot afford Paul Ryan’s values in Lori’s 59th District

To the editor:

Do YOU want to protect our environment, foster a healthy public school system, protect women’s rights, make certain that we encourage our fellow citizens to vote and protect worker rights?

Then vote for Mike Moroz, Democratic candidate for our Michigan State House of Representatives, District 59.

Let’s look at Matt Lori’s record.

This self-proclaimed environmentalist received a lifetime score of 32 percent from The Michigan League of Conservation Voters.

He voted to increase the minimum age for beginning kindergarten students (HB 4513) and repeal the limit of the number of charter schools (SB618).

Do you remember that Lori was a co-sponsor of the radical “Personhood Amendment” – Oct. 17, 2009?

This Constantine native wants to restrict voter rights, not encourage voter turnout, with his support of HB 5061 that requires photos ID when there is little if any evidence of voter misconduct based on voter ID in Michigan.

Forget about worker rights with Lori in office.

He has attacked unions with his support of HB 4929 that prohibits union dues deductions from school employee paychecks and HB 4628 that amends collective bargaining rights of public school teachers.

Details of Lori’s votes on key issues can be found at

Vote for Mike Moroz, Democratic candidate for our Michigan State House of Representatives, District 59.

We cannot afford the values of Paul Ryan transferred to the 59th District.
