Candidate Jackie Ryan
History and Evaluation of the Candidate
Jackie Ryan’s involvement with Sterling Heights Politics came about during her opposition to the installation of so-called ‘Smart Meters’ by DTE in Sterling Heights.
Insisting that City Council pass an ordinance forbidding the installation of these devices, Ms. Ryan spent a great deal of time circulating anti-Smart Meter propaganda around town and speaking before council about the issue.
Later, in 2014, Candidate Ryan took a strong stance against the LGBT anti-discrimination ordinance. She circulated the petition that ultimately succeeded in the repeal of the ordinance, and spoke before council calling the ordinance “an embarrassment.”
Most recently, Ms. Ryan has been advocating that the city create a tribunal designed to vet which immigrants are allowed to come to Sterling Heights.
Simply put, Jackie Ryan misunderstands the role of City Council. Her advocacy for vetting candidates indicates her lack of knowledge of American history and the proper role of a governing body. She is almost uniquely unqualified for office.
I am recommending you NOT vote for Jackie Ryan on November 3, 2015.
