Meet Elissa Slotkin
Elissa’s story is one of hard work, community, and service. Those are the values she learned growing up in Michigan, and they’re the values that she’ll bring to the U.S. Senate.
A third generation Michigander, Elissa was shaped by her early life on her family farm in Holly, Michigan. Elissa has dedicated her life to serving our country and protecting our homeland – first in the CIA, where she served three tours in Iraq alongside the U.S. military, and later at the White House, State Department, and finally at the Pentagon.
Her family story is “made in Michigan,” starting with her great-grandfather. He came to the United States and lived the American Dream when he founded the family meat business, Hygrade Foods. The company created a number of food staples beloved by Michiganders, including the famous Ballpark Frank, first sold at Tiger Stadium.
