Strong Experienced Leadership
About Amos O'Neal
I live in Saginaw. I raised my three girls here. My wife taught in the public schools. And I have served my community through the years in many ways. I live the successes and challenges that we have in this community--accessing to quality healthcare, strong public schools, an economy that works for everyone.
We share some needs with other communities, and some of our needs are unique. But solutions are the ultimate goal. My time in the House will be focused on finding solutions and helping the citizens of the 95th district.
I am asking for your support as I run for State Representative for the 95th District. Whether you can make campaign donations, volunteer with the campaign, attend events, or vote for Amos, your support will help our campaign’s success.
It will be an honor to serve and contribute to the growth and prosperity of Saginaw County's 95th District.
