My name is Jamie Thompson and I am a Conservative Republican running for State Representative of HD 28. I am a Christian, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, and Nurse. We are raising our 3 Grandchildren. We lost our daughter last year in a motorcycle accident. She was 24 years old. We also have two sons, ages 23 and 21. My eyes were opened in 2020. I have been a Grassroots Activist for Freedom ever since. I am opposed to mandates of any kind. I stand by Medical Freedom, Constitutional Carry, and the Protection of our Unborn. As a nurse, I witnessed firsthand a very broken Healthcare system. I took an oath to do no harm and my autonomy to protect patients’ rights was taken away from me. I have chosen to not receive the Covid shot and I have been vilified for my choice. This is unacceptable. Our family business was attacked by BLM supporters and the Radical left in 2020. My husband and I stood on our morals and values. We refused to back down. That is the mindset I will take to Lansing. We have become a nation and state divided. Our children are not exempt from this. We must unite as one and come together on what we do agree on, even if it is one thing. The division, anxiety, and anger must stop. It is time to bring Freedom, Prosperity, and Hope back to Michigan. I will be the voice of the people, not the government.
MORE TO KNOW ABOUT JAMIE THOMPSON FROM OUR UNITE FOR MICHIGAN Q&A:
Q. If you were not in your current role/endeavor, what would you be doing instead?
A. I Would be focusing on educating the community on their Constitutional Rights, advocating for Medical Freedom, and speaking at School Board meetings to push for transparency and parental rights.

I would also be actively seeking a path to utilize my nursing license in an environment that promotes patients’ rights and medical freedom.
Q. What has been the biggest impact in your industry or life in the last 5 years?
A. Our daughter was killed in a motorcycle accident on June 24, 2021. At age 24, she left behind 3 children ages 4, 6, and 8. My husband and I have guardianship and are raising them.
Q. Where do you see yourself or business in 5 years?
A. Working in Lansing as State Representative of HD 28.
Q. Who do you most admire or are inspired by, and why?
A. Marjorie Taylor Greene. Because she is unapologetically America First and unapologetically a conservative Christian.
Q. What organization is top on your list
A. That is a difficult question because I am passionate about many things. If I had to choose one, it would be Right To Life or another pro-life organization that would actively oppose Planned Parenthood.
Q. What is the biggest need you face in your business or organization today?
A. We need citizens and business owners to stand on their morals and values. Small business is terrified to publicly be Christian and Conservative for fear of cancel culture.
