Representative Slavens is proudly serving her second term for Michigan's 21st House District. She is currently the Democratic Chair for the Committee on Families, Children and Seniors, and sits on the committees for Regulatory Reform and Natural Resources, Tourism and Recreation.
Having been a respiratory therapist in Southeast Michigan hospitals prior to her time in the legislature, Rep. Slavens understands the importance of access to quality, affordable health care for all Michigan residents. Her background also inspired her to champion a bill that holds health care providers responsible when they engage in harmful and unethical medical practices as well as be instrumental in passing the smoking ban to protect non-smokers from the harmful effects of secondhand smoke.
Dian also understands the importance of shared sacrifice in this tough economy. As a State Representative she voted to cut all lawmaker’s salaries by 10 percent-even her own. She also fought to end the costly, tax payer-funded lifetime health care benefits for lawmakers and passed on the excessive perk for herself. Representative Slavens knows the budget is tight and that all of your hard-earned taxpayer dollars need to be spent wisely.
To thrust Michigan into a 21st century economy so her three children and grandchild have a prosperous future in our state, Dian fully supports and encourages incentives to advance battery technology for green vehicles. Our state has a respected history as a leader in manufacturing and with these incentives we can once again claim our place at the top. Returning jobs to our middle class is not just delegated to large businesses which is why Rep. Slavens also launched the website BuyMichFirst.com to cultivate and grow our state’s small business sector. Promoting job growth, reducing reckless spending, and fully dedicating herself to keep Michigan healthy is what Dian Slavens has proudly done and hopes to continue to do for the 21st District, for our state, and for our future.</p> <p></p>
