A former public servant who helped lead Michigan's auto recovery and saved thousands of jobs
Haley Stevens is a leader in advanced manufacturing and a former public servant who ran for Congress to continue her fight for Michigan working families. As the daughter of a CEO mother and public school teacher father who started a small business together, Haley knows what it takes to work hard and make a difference. She served as a political appointee under President Obama, serving as chief of staff for the Treasury Department’s Auto Task Force and as a special advisor for the Department of Commerce. Haley played a key role in restoring the financial stability of the auto industry and helped save thousands of Michigan jobs during the recession. She worked tirelessly to help set up the Office of Recovery for Automotive Communities and Workers and the White House Office of Manufacturing Policy, federal offices that contributed to the creation of new jobs for hardworking Michiganders. Born and raised in Oakland County, she is a proud resident of Rochester Hills and has most recently led a national workforce development program and launched a STEM education initiative for middle and high school students.
A leader dedicated to creating Great Lake State jobs
Haley ran to expand economic opportunity for all Michiganders and fighting to create good-paying jobs that will help Southeastern Michigan communities thrive. As chief of staff to President Obama’s auto rescue, she helped save thousands of jobs and strengthened Michigan’s advanced manufacturing economy. Haley has worked to create advanced manufacturing job opportunities in southeastern Michigan, and she created the country’s first online certification program for digital manufacturing. She has a proven record of fiercely defending and expanding Michiganders’ economic opportunities, and she champions policies that create more good-paying jobs. Haley is a powerful advocate for expanding access to quality health care at a time when Republicans are desperate to undo the progress we have worked so hard to make. “Health care is a right,” she has said, and she is a pro-choice champion.
A victory that turned an open red seat blue
Haley ran a successful grassroots campaign for the seat vacated by retiring incumbent Republican David Trott. The EMILY’s List community is proud to support this fighter for Michigan working families.
