ISPLA Endorses Hansen Clarke for Congress

Michigan State Senator Hansen Clarke has received the endorsement of Investigative & Security Professionals for Legislative Action. In August he defeated seven-term incumbent Congresswoman Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick in the Democratic primary for the 13th Congressional District in

Michigan . The district covers about half of Detroit, the Grosse Pointe communities, Harper Woods and the Downriver cities of Ecorse, Lincoln Park, River Rouge and Wyandotte .

Clarke, a resident of Detroit, has been a
Michigan state senator since 2002. He served as a state representative prior to his time in the Michigan Senate. ISPLA chairman Peter Psarouthakis, of EWI Associates, Inc., this week presented Senator Clarke with a donation from our federal nonpartisan ISPLAPAC. Peter, and ISPLA secretary Al Cavasin, owner of Great Northern Sentry Co., in Jackson, Michigan, have observed the excellent work of the Senator in Michigan over the years. They feel that he knows the problems facing the investigative and security professions and that his legislative experience in Michigan will serve us well in Washington .

ISPLA discussed with the senator how we might serve as a resource regarding investigative and security matters in the private sector including: privacy issues, Social Security Number limitations, indigent defense, identity theft, infrastructure security, and public record access. Although still a young and fast-growing professional association, ISPLA‚Äôs organizers have a wealth of knowledge and experience having testified on GLBA implementation, ID theft, and indigent defense issues before the House Finance, Ways and Means, and Judiciary Committees.  We advised Senator Clarke that ISPLA is experienced in working with committee staff and regulatory agencies and providing testimony and public comment. We assured him that if ISPLA can ever lend him support on any public safety issues, he should feel free to call upon us. Michigan State Senator Clarke, who we hope will soon become Congressman Clarke, holds a BFA degree from Cornell University and a JD degree from

Georgetown University Law Center .

ISPLA administers a nonpartisan federal political action committee and disburses ALL of its funds in each two-year Congressional cycle. All PAC monies of ISPLA have now been disbursed to worthy Congressional candidates. It is fulfilling a need at the federal level that has not been addressed by any national association until now.  It has created a mechanism for investigative and security professionals having mutual interests to participate in lobbying and financially support qualified political candidates for office.  The leadership of ISPLA is deeply committed to providing legislative expertise and financial resources to accomplish this important mission.
