Hello Patch Community:
My name is Brian Banks and I am a candidate for State Representative in the newly drawn House District 1 representing Northeast Detroit, Grosse Pointe Shores, Grosse Pointe Woods, and Harper Woods. Currently, I am pursuing my PhD in Public Policy & Administration. I also hold a Juris Doctor from Michigan State University College of Law, and both a Bachelor of Science and Master of Education from Wayne State University. I am an advocate for education, an experienced public policy professional, and a committed community leader. My top priorities are Education, Jobs, Public Safety, and Seniors. As your next State Representative, I will adamantly fight for our schools to retain local control while supporting the core visions and standards of our school districts. What issues and or concerns do you have on the State level, I would love to hear?
