Meet Dan

Dan has always been focused on the kitchen-table issues important to families in Flint, Saginaw, Bay City and Midland—creating good-paying manufacturing jobs, lowering the cost of prescription drugs, fixing our roads, and ensuring clean and affordable drinking water for all.

He knows what can be accomplished when we set aside partisanship—because his record proves that he’ll work hard, and is willing to work with anyone, to just get things done.

To lower costs for families, Dan passed a new law allowing Medicare to negotiate with pharmaceutical companies, helping to lower drug costs for those on Medicare and with private insurance.


To fix our roads, Dan brought Republicans and Democrats together to pass the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law—bringing home billions of dollars to rebuild Michigan roads, repair bridges, remove lead pipes and expand high-speed broadband internet access for all mid-Michigan families.


To protect our Great Lakes and ensure clean water, Dan successfully fought to fully invest in the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative to stop invasive species like Asian carp. And he’s led the fight in Congress to ensure clean, affordable and safe drinking water for all, by cleaning up lead and dangerous PFAS chemicals.

Before being elected to Congress, Dan created the Genesee County Land Bank, which helped to strengthen neighborhoods and reduce crime by redeveloping thousands of homes and buildings. He also founded the Center for Community Progress, a non-profit organization focused on bringing new economic development to older, industrial communities like Flint, Saginaw, Bay City and Midland.

For Dan, Michigan is home. He was born and raised in Flint, and raised his family in mid-Michigan. He and his wife, Jennifer, currently reside in Flint Township. Dan has three children, Ryan, Kenneth and Katy. His oldest son Ryan and his wife Ginger are the parents of Dan’s two grandchildren, Caitlin and Colin.
