About Martin


Lansing clearly needs more leaders with experience in finances and – frankly – simple math. It’s time to send a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) to the state house who can actually read a budget and has the experience at the local government level to educate the public and bring pressure to bear on the tax-spenders in Lansing. Martin Howrylak is the proven conservative leader who has that experience and ability.
