Both of the candidates running in the November 8, 2022, general election for Michigan House of Representatives District 60 —Linda Rose Clor (D) and Joseph Aragona (R) — completed Ballotpedia’s Candidate Connection survey. These survey responses allow voters to hear directly from candidates about what motivates them to run for office.
Eighty-eight of the country’s 99 state legislative chambers will hold regularly scheduled elections in 2022. The Republican Party controls both chambers of Michigan’s state legislature. Michigan is one of 13 states under divided government.
Here are excerpts from candidates’ responses to the question: What areas of public policy are you personally passionate about?
“I WILL DO EVERYTHING IN MY POWER TO GET BACK THE RIGHTS OF FEMALES TO HAVE REPRODUCTIVE FREEDOM OF CHOICE, TO PROTECT OUR CHILDREN AT SCHOOL AND ALL PEOPLE IN ALL PUBLIC PLACES. I SUPPORT PUBLIC EDUCATION, THE RIGHT TO HAVE AFFORDABLE OR FREE EDUCATION, HEALTHCARE FOR ALL AND A CLEAN ENVIRONMENT.”
“Joseph Aragona is a pro-life, pro-2A, fiscal conservative. He has and will continue to support the efforts of our police departments to protect our society. Joseph started fishing with his father from a young age. As a result, Joseph is passionate about water quality and efforts to clean up our watershed. During the pandemic, Joseph frequented many local businesses, and tried to bring public exposure to their hardship.”
