It is an honor and great responsibility to be chosen as the voice for the people of the 91st district, Lamonte said. I know our middle-class families are struggling and that they want an ally in the Legislature. I pledge to work hard on their behalf by working to strengthen our public education system, restore fairness to our tax code and create an environment where small businesses can thrive.

I look forward to going to work in Lansing, but the people of my district should know I will never be out of reach, Lamonte said. I look forward to listening to the people of the 91st district talk about their concerns and suggestions, and my door will always be open to them.
