Statement from Senate Democratic Leader Jim Ananich on result of U.S. Presidential Election

“Yesterday’s election results were shocking and sobering, but I am more determined than ever to fight for the people who make this country great and the values that truly represent us.

“Voters are clearly angry and frustrated, and as someone who is living through a debacle like the Flint water crisis, I can understand why there is so little trust in government and those in power. But tearing each other down over our differences will not fix it. Building up walls or allowing those who have created the mess to reign unchecked will only make it worse. Instead, we have to work even harder to help those the system is leaving out. We have to come together to ensure people receive basic rights and opportunities to succeed.

“I promise you this — we will not quit standing up for what we know is right.”
