Tudor Dixon is a wife, mother of four, cancer survivor, and former small business owner. The daughter of a steel industry worker, Tudor grew up around factories her entire life and spent a decade working in steel manufacturing herself.
Tudor believes we can only build Michigan’s comeback through common-sense solutions to everyday Michiganders’ problems. That means a limited government that focuses on creating an environment where everyone can get an excellent education, build economic security, live in a safe community, and be free to pursue their best life. Tudor also wants to clean up Lansing by holding the government accountable. That means reining in the out-of-control executive branch, strengthening ethics and transparency laws, and ensuring government officials don’t get special treatment when they break laws and rules.
Tudor believes government should give Michiganders the tools they need to build their American dream and then get out of the way so they can.
Tudor began her professional career in Chicago with an industry-leading public relations and marketing firm after graduating from the University of Kentucky with a degree in psychology. Her father recruited her to the steel industry after investing in a foundry in Michigan in the early 2000s. She worked first with her father’s foundry and later with other companies after the Great Recession drove him out of business. Tudor spent nearly a decade in the steel industry before returning to her roots in public relations and building a successful media business and career in Michigan, where she is raising her family.
