State House District 53
Joseph Stevens is a Green Party candidate for the District 53 state representative. This is his first bid for public office.
At a League of Women Voters candidate forum, Stevens stated that he's running to give voters a choice. He described himself as a "small government progressive," and listed top priorities in Lansing as election reform (including auto registration, funding for more polling locations, and elimination of straight-ticket voting), drug legalization, and increased mediation in the criminal justice system.
Stevens lives on Ann Arbor’s south side.
