Republican Nominee for U.S. Congress, Michigan's 11th District


An automotive industry business leader, wife, and mother, Lena Epstein has worked hard to earn the respect of tough-as-nails business leaders – many of whom were not used to dealing with a businesswoman in the automotive industry.

Today, she is the successful third-generation co-owner and manager of Vesco Oil Corporation, one of the largest women-owned businesses in Michigan with over 200 employees and annual revenue exceeding $180 million per year.

Epstein will do the same thing in Washington, working across the aisle to find common-sense solutions to some of America’s most pressing problems.

“We can work together for lower taxes, good quality healthcare, and safer neighborhoods for our children and grandchildren,” she says. "I am running for Congress to work in a bipartisan manner for better paying jobs, safer immigration, and security here at home.”

Epstein is a sought-after mentor and motivational speaker providing inspirational perspective for others on seizing career opportunities while maintaining a balanced life.

A nationally-recognized conservative, Epstein co-chaired the 2016 Donald Trump Michigan Presidential Campaign. Her post-election cry for unity made her a popular speaker among Democrats and Republicans alike. She is a frequent guest on local, state, national and international media, discussing the political landscape and other topics of the day.

Epstein is an active, passionate community leader. In 2012, she was appointed by Gov. Rick Snyder to the Michigan Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Board. She serves on several other boards, including the Detroit Regional Chamber of Commerce, the Detroit Historical Society and the Community Foundation of Southeast Michigan.

“I will represent every Michigan citizen as we work tirelessly to unite behind our shared ideals of freedom, safety, and opportunity for our families."
