Joey Andrews for State Rep
Michigan House District 38
My commitment will be to the people of this community...
...not to the political winds of this state.
I returned to St. Joseph after college to help my parents with their business which was struggling after the Great Recession. A lot has changed since, and while some things have gotten better, in many ways the same pattern remains. I know first hand the impact of Lansing continuing to ignore and forget about the needs of coastal communities.
As a licensed attorney who works as a policy analyst for the Michigan AFL-CIO, I've been on the front line advocating for real solutions. I've seen first hand that politicians don’t understand the specific challenges we face. Our communities deserve a voice that will proudly stand up for what is right no matter what political party may be in power.
As a fifth-generation Southwest Michigan native
I was born and raised in Southwestern Michigan. I know and respect the unique issues of the newly drawn 38th District. I am focused on the growing water issues of erosion and flooding, lead and aging infrastructure, combating the short-term rental crisis gutting the local communities, and fighting for a fair economy and fair wages for local working families.
As a lifelong resident, I have spent years working and organizing in every corner of Southwest Michigan. I understand what makes our lakeshore communities unique and important, and I will be a fierce and tireless advocate in Lansing for working families who just want a fair shot.

The Latest from Joey
Labor issues are really important to me, and I hope to work with legislators to continue to create an environment where we can retain and educate the best talent— and where people feel like the new 38th is a place to put down roots. www.deadlinedetroit.com/articles/30578/critical_consition_michigan_hospital_staff_shortages_persist_with_thousands_of_openings #TeamJoey #MIleg #Michigan #JoeyForMichigan #MIStateHouse See More
