Dear Friends,

As a reminder, I will be holding a State of Our Schools town hall this Thursday, Nov. 16, at 6:30 p.m. in the Board Room of the Ypsilanti Township Hall, 7200 S. Huron River Drive in Ypsilanti. I will be joined by a panel of special guests including Dr. Benjamin Edmondson, superintendent of Ypsilanti Community Schools; Dr. Sean McNatt, superintendent of Lincoln Consolidated Schools; and Scott Menzel, superintendent of Washtenaw Intermediate School District.
