Local Attorney Brennen Gorman Confirms Candidacy for State Representative in the 87th District

MUSKEGON — Charging forward with a positive, community-centric, and policy-focused campaign, Brennen Gorman (D) submitted paperwork with Muskegon County Clerk earlier today to formalize his candidacy for State Representative in the newly drawn 87th House District.

With a background in policy, Brennen understands the issues residents in the 87th District face every day and, perhaps most importantly, has thoughtful, relevant policy ideas to address and lead them to a resolution. Brennen’s campaign addresses:

  • Implementation of Non-Monetary Bail & a Pre-Trial Services Dept.
  • Reimagination of K-12 Education Funding in Michigan
  • Increased investments to support local infrastructure, environment, and residents
  • Implementation of Pharmacist Prescribed Birth Control
  • Codification LGBTQIA2S+ Rights in Statute
  • Creation of Michigan’s Own Family Medical Leave Act
  • Increased Youth Participation in Elections

“I am running for State Representative because I feel powerless and overwhelmed by the number of injustices, barriers, and divisions facing our community. While easier to be crippled by indecision and anxiety – I have stepped forward because the only place where each of these issues intersect is in government,” shares Gorman.

Brennen is a practicing attorney at Brower Vander Veen, PLC and is an Adjunct Faculty Member at Muskegon Community College in its Business Department. He received his Bachelor of Science in Political Science as well as a Bachelor of Arts in Writing from Grand Valley State University and earned his Juris Doctor from Michigan State University College of Law.

Brennen is a Board Member of the Foundation for Muskegon Community College, Parties in the Park, and is a past president of the Greater Muskegon Jaycees. Brennen lives in Nelson Neighborhood, Muskegon with his wife Muskegon City Commissioner Rachel Gorman.

More information about the platform of the Gorman Campaign is available in a video series format on the campaign website www.brennengorman.com with Brennen addressing each of these topics – hear from him directly why each of these issues are real and relevant issues facing our community.

“Government is not a magic cure all, but it holds a special position within our society as the place with the greatest propensity for growth and change. I am running to be your next State Representative because I want to face these challenges head-on and bring a new voice to address the institutional barriers plaguing our friends and neighbors.”
