Real Integrity Real Results

I believe leadership begins with service, which means showing up, listening to learn, and— when it is time to talk— holding to one’s word. Integrity is everything. If you doubt it in a candidate, look at our records. Look at the impact of how we’ve spent our personal and professional lives.

I’m Kristen McDonald Rivet. I have a 30-year track record of real results for Michigan’s working families and children. Have a look. I’m ready to deliver for you and our 35th Senate District.

Kristen's Priorities

Michigan Senate District 35

Our 35th Senate District includes parts of Bay, Midland, and Saginaw Counties including Auburn, Essexville, Bay City, Midland, Freeland, the City of Saginaw, and Buena Vista.

This district of 250,000+ constituents was a key battleground for State Senate control in the November 2022 elections. It was a top two target in Michigan and top 25 target nationally. Republicans had controlled the Michigan Senate since 1984 but fairer maps and top-notch candidates like Kristen helped Democrats win the majority.

Mobilize, share our messages, donate, and campaign with us. With your help, we’ll galvanize support for the leaders and policies Michigan needs to win the future.
