Walled Lake MI- Today Retired Pastor Dan Lauffer R-Walled Lake, announced he will challenge Rep. Kathy Crawford in a rematch for State Representative in this years, August 2nd, Republican Primary.


Pastor Lauffer spent 27 years as an ordained minister in the United Methodist Church. He also spent 15 years teaching in the collegiate level.


“We have seen talk and little action from our current Representative,” said Lauffer. “From an office that struggles to keep its doors open, $600 million in new gas taxes, Obamacare expansion in Michigan and no action to restore pension taxes as they should be, working families have taken a huge hit from Hugh and Kathy Crawford in higher taxes and straight up poor constituent service.”


In 2015, repeated constituents approached Lauffer about not getting a response from Rep. Crawford’s office. Lauffer and others conducted their own tests to see the availability of the taxpayer-paid office. The conclusion after an extended study was that the 40 hour paid per week office was only staying open on average 28-32 hours per week.


 Lauffer also cited the 2011 vote on retiree pensions that now takes over $350 million per year from retired seniors. That vote was 56-53 with Former Rep. Hugh Crawford, casting the tie-breaking vote to tax Michigan seniors.


Lauffer pointed out that in 2013 with the support of Hugh Crawford and mostly Democrats, the Legislature passed Medicaid expansion commonly known as Obamacare in Michigan. Starting this fall, the state has to start paying $108 million to fund its share of the program, which is money that comes out of excess surplus dollars that previously went to road repairs.


“Hugh and Kathy Crawford like to run on each other’s record and I welcome that discussion, you deserve better and as your State Representative, I look forward to undoing the damage done in part by our Representatives in Lansing.” said Lauffer.


“On Day 1, bills to repeal Obamacare in Michigan. The repeal of the gas tax hikes and Pension taxes will be introduced by me, in addition you count on my office being open to serve the public,” said Lauffer.


Lauffer and his wife, live in Walled Lake. He has 2 children and 4 grandchildren.
