Hello! Welcome to the Garnet Lewis for State Senate official campaign website. Whether you are a teacher, public servant, factory worker, farmer, or unemployed, you deserve a voice, a person who will represent your interests in Lansing. I am that person; I want to be your voice.
With your support, I look forward to working hard in Lansing to make our great state the best place to live, to raise a family, to retire.
Our region needs a senator who gets it: a senator who knows hard times and hard work; a senator who understands our challenges, who understands the urgency of our situation, who seeks long-term solutions. While families are struggling to make ends meet and while high unemployment and under-employment continue to gouge Michigan’s economy, legislators in Lansing have passed bills that hurt working families, that tax pensions, that defund schools, that lay off police and firefighters, and that slash the earned income tax credit.
We need to stop these attacks on the worker. Our focus must be on job creation, job stability, jobs that pay well, and job training. It is time for the needs of the people to be put above political games, power grabs, and corporate interests.
As your senator, I will strive to find solutions to reduce Michigan’s high unemployment. And I refuse to believe that the only way to do that is on the backs of Michigan’s working families. Michigan workers and their families are the heart and backbone of our great state and our region.
I am eager to take my experiences as an investor and business owner, a life-long educator, a committed community volunteer, and an activist to Lansing to represent YOU in the State Senate and put Michigan back to work.
Please join me! Thank you for your interest in my campaign.
Join Team Lewis!

What Others Are Saying About Garnet
"Garnet has earned my support, and that’s not easy. Our officials must be held to a high standard; they must act with responsibility and integrity; they must listen to and learn from others; and they must be a voice for those who are overlooked, ignored, or subjugated. In each of these, Garnet exceeds my expectations. I admire Garnet’s commitment to make this world better and her deep-seated understanding that it starts with the involvement of each of us working as a community as we work for the greater good."
-- Terry Brown, State Representative
