Statement From Pamela M. Sossi, Esq. Regarding Brian Banks Resignation

While today’s news about Brian Banks saddens me, I applaud him for resigning, rather than dragging the constituents of District 1 through a lengthy felony trial.

As Mr. Banks resignation is immediate, our District is left without a voice in Lansing. Mr. Banks immediate resignation means that the 1st House Seat in the Michigan House of Representatives is vacant, and will remain vacant until filled by a Special Election.

In 2016, I ran for the Democratic nomination in District 1 to restore a voice to all of the District; as we were ignored by our current Representative. Now, voters have the opportunity to send a Representative to Lansing to replace Brian Banks. A new representative who will stand up for the people of District 1 and stand up to the Lansing elite.

I am running for the 1st House District seat because I want to fight for the people of my district. District 1 deserves to have a Representative in Lansing who reflects the communities of the District. Someone who is not afraid to do what is right for the people, rather than what is politically beneficial. This campaign is for ALL of the residents of District 1 who choose to live here and work hard to provide a safe home for their family here.

Public service is a privilege and not a game of musical chairs. All voices matter. I will put the people first and will work for the needs of everyone of District 1.

THIS CAMPAIGN IS ABOUT MORE THAN ME — IT IS ABOUT MAKING SURE DISTRICT 1 HAS A VOICE.

I want to be that voice and I hope I can earn your support.

Please vote Pamela Sossi for State House, District 1.

Regards,
Pamela M. Sossi, Esq.
