Vanessa Guerra is running to represent Michigan’s 95th House District where the democratic incumbent is running for the state senate. The 95HD is considered to be more than 70% democratic and the August 5th primary election will decide the next state representative. Guerra’s primary election opponent is anti-choice and is proud to be endorsed by Right to Life of Michigan.
Vanessa understands that bringing jobs back to the 95th House District is key to its revitalization. She will work tirelessly to ensure that both children and their parents are provided every opportunity to succeed.
Vanessa’s family instilled in her a strong work ethic and community commitment. Her aunt was a teacher for 18 years with the Saginaw Public School District. Her grandparents worked for more than 40 years in the area’s General Motors factories. Her great-great grandfather was a founder of La Union Civica, an organization that promotes civil rights and education for members of the Saginaw Latino community.
Vanessa’s devotion to her community is evidence by her involvement. She raises money for academic scholarships and works as an academic advisor to local youth at Delta College. Vanessa has served as an intern in the Saginaw County Prosecutor’s Office, and as a volunteer advocate for victims of Domestic Violence in the Third Judicial Circuit Court. Guerra also volunteers with a program to help elementary school students earn to read.
Born and raised in Bridgeport Township, she is a graduate of the Bridgeport-Spaulding Community Schools and the University of Michigan. Elected as a Bridgeport Township Trustee in 2012, Vanessa is also currently a student at University of Detroit Mercy law school where she is focusing on public interest law.
