MI-11: Lena Epstein (R)
I’m a millennial female business owner with years of experience managing an automotive distributorship in Southeast Michigan. Vesco Oil Corporation is one of the largest women-owned businesses in Michigan with over 200 employees and sales exceeding $180 million per year.
As a female in the business world, things weren’t always easy. At times, I was underestimated, talked down, and dismissed. I was able to overcome these obstacles and find success. I earned the respect of my colleagues through hard work and dedication.
As a political outsider, I have a unique perspective. I will bring my business experience to Washington, D.C. and work harder than ever for the people of Southeast Michigan.
