  • "When nearly 20% of families in the 13th Congressional District don’t have access to a vehicle. When our kids need to get to school…when we need to get to our jobs…when our parents and grandparents need to get to the doctor or shopping …reliable, affordable public transportation isn’t a luxury. It’s a necessity. Especially in Wayne County, too many jobs, shopping and amenities are inaccessible by transit for the folks who need them most. Bill has been an outspoken leader to bring reliable, affordable transit to every corner of the 13th District and our region." (www.billwildforcongress.com)
  • "As the second poorest district in the country, the 13th needs a strong federal partner to bring home resources and connect families to the resources they need. As a mayor, Bill has been leveraging federal dollars from Washington for over a decade. He has used community block grants to help our local non-profits and to revitalize neighborhoods." (www.billwildforcongress.com)
  • "Our roads and bridges are crumbling, making driving hazardous and expensive, and our aging water systems put us all at risk for water problems and expensive repairs. Bill will work to bring home our fair share of federal dollars to fix our roads, bridges and water infrastructure, and create good-paying jobs at the same time!" (www.billwildforcongress.com)

  • "Right now, public education is under attack in Washington from Michigan’s own Betsy DeVos, the Trump Administration’s Secretary of Education.  She’s proposed eliminating critical programs for our most at risk and at need students, cutting millions from our own after school academic support programs and other programs geared to help economically challenged areas. Congress must fight these spending cuts. As the second poorest congressional district in the country, the children of 13th District deserve better!" (www.billwildforcongress.com)

  • "I support the 2nd Amendment but we need red flag laws nationwide. We need to ban assault weapons, which no one needs for hunting. Bump stocks and other devices that convert firearms into weapons of mass destruction should be banned. We need to strengthen background checks and "boyfriend" and "stalker" laws." (www.billwildforcongress.com)
  • "Health care is a right, not a privilege. I believe that, no matter what you call the policy, every American should have access to affordable insurance and quality, affordable care." (www.billwildforcongress.com)
  • "Obamacare was a good start. Millions more Americans, especially kids, are now covered.  But too many people are still falling through the cracks with outrageous deductibles, skyrocketing prescription drug costs and unmanageable co-pays.  That’s why I support "Medicare for All," building on a successful decades-old program which puts us on a path to universal coverage." (www.billwildforcongress.com)
  • "I never imagined I would live in country that would deport people who happen to be undocumented through no fault of their own–because they came to the US as children. It’s inhumane and wrong that their lives hang in the balance as they are used as pawns and bargaining chips to build a wall!" (www.billwildforcongress.com)
  • "Bill will fight for common-sense and humane immigration policies that prioritizes keeping families together but keeping America safe. He fully supports the DREAM Act to help undocumented immigrants who came here as children get a path to citizenship." (www.billwildforcongress.com)
