State Field Director | Voters Not Politicians
Jamie Lyons-Eddy was one of the co-founders of Voters Not Politicians. She set up and led the all-volunteer field organization that gathered over 428,000 signatures to get Michigan’s Proposal 2 on the 2018 statewide ballot, and later knocked over 450,000 doors, leading to a 61% victory. Her background is in engineering and teaching math, and she’s proud to be one of the regular citizens who came together to end gerrymandering in Michigan by using direct democracy to establish an independent redistricting commission. She’s looking forward to fair maps in Michigan by 2020, and like everyone involved in Voters Not Politicians, she believes that if people have a sense of community, a clear path to a goal, and an ownership stake in the process, they can come together and make government work better for all.
