William Broman is the Republican candidate for District 1 in the Michigan House of Representatives. He earned a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from George Washington University, and was a member of GW’s sailing team, graduating in 2014.  He has worked for an automotive supplier as an engineer and a D.C.-based education advocacy group.

In 2012, from his dorm room at GW, Broman campaigned for a seat on the Grosse Pointe Public Schools Board of Education. Juggling his commitment to his team, the rigor of an engineering curriculum, and his duties as treasurer of the GW College Republicans, Broman made it back to Grosse Pointe to campaign just two times and ended up earning more than 9,300 votes.

What was the biggest factor in your success?

Actively listening, saying no to mediocrity, and constantly challenging my own views. By constantly questioning where I stand, attending meetings of groups I may not agree with, and reading books that may run contrary to my beliefs, I’ve found myself giving much stronger arguments, sans rhetoric, in favor of fiscal responsibility and limited government.

What advice would you give to other millennials?

Don’t be lazy, and don’t accept mediocrity. You don’t have to run for office, but you do need to engage your elected officials and understand the long-term impact of policies, especially the negative impact of poor public policy. The world we will raise our children and grandchildren in is being created today. Be demanding of elected officials and of your government, refuse to accept mediocre results, and refuse to accept poor behavior, remember… they work for us.

Does the GOP have a future and why?

The GOP has a great future ahead of it, especially if we focus on urban progress, and reversing the long-term negative effects of liberal policies that promote and enable government dependence. We need to enact policies that reduce barriers to economic freedom and put financial independence within reach of everyone. We need to improve access to capital and other resources for minority entrepreneurs. We need to constantly remind ourselves that urban and rural poverty are two different problems, requiring different solutions. And, we need to craft solutions to these complex problems that do not increase state budgets.
