Suzana Shkreli- A first generation American and outstanding public servant/
Suzanna Shkreli is a first generation American, born and raised in Michigan. Her parents are Albanian immigrants who came to the United States in search of a better life, and they taught Suzanna and her siblings the values of hard work and giving back. Suzanna worked her way through college and law school with student loans, and chose a career of public service as a Macomb County prosecutor, prosecuting homicide, drug crimes, assaults, and domestic violence. She currently serves in the Child Protection Unit, where she prosecutes crimes against children involving physical and sexual abuse. Suzanna is an advocate for victim rights and has represented the United States Department of Justice in training law enforcement agencies on victim rights abroad. In Congress, Suzanna will take on tough fights to expand economic opportunity and to give all Michigan families a fair shot.
A champion for women and families
Suzanna has taken on tough fights in the courtroom and works tirelessly to help Michigan women and families get ahead. When elected, she will be a champion for working families in Washington. Suzanna is an advocate for the most vulnerable members of her community, supporting the Macomb County Warming Shelter and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and helping her family carry on a Thanksgiving tradition of preparing and delivering hot meals for senior citizens in their community. Suzanna’s family came to the United States in search of educational and economic opportunity, and in Congress she will fight to break down barriers so that all Michiganders have a fair shot.
A vulnerable Republican incumbent in a swing district
Suzanna understands that the stakes couldn’t be higher for Michigan women and families in 2016. “This election is different,” Suzanna has said, and she has stepped up to fight for Michigan working families who need a new voice in Congress. Suzanna is running in a swing district against vulnerable incumbent Congressman Mike Bishop. Bishop has repeatedly put his extreme agenda ahead of what’s best for women and families, including opposing the Paycheck Fairness Act, voting for a national abortion ban, and cosponsoring legislation that would ban common forms of birth control. In January, EMILY’s List put Bishop “On Notice” for his outrageous record. Michiganders are ready to hold Bishop accountable, and Suzanna is running a strong campaign to bring new leadership to the district — but she needs the full support of EMILY’s List to flip this seat in November. Let’s all chip in to help Suzanna take her fight for Michigan women and families all the way to Washington.
