Upcoming Coffee Hour
Please join me at my next community event on Friday, Sept. 6, from 10 to 11 a.m. at the Fillmore 13 Brewery, 7 N. Saginaw St. in Pontiac.
I look forward to seeing you, but if you are unable to join me and would like to talk to me about any concerns or questions you may have, please reach out to me by email, phone or stop by my office in Lansing. Serving you and our community is my top priority.
Senior Meet and Greet
August 4 was a truly GREAT day for the residents of the 29th District as we shared our concerns about education, the economy, the state budget, autism and our criminal justice system. Thank you to everyone, from Auburn Hills to Keego Harbor, who took time to share their concerns with us!
Pontiac Back to School Rally
Thank you to everyone from the Pontiac School District for their persistence in providing opportunities for our children!
Mobile Dental Unit
On Aug. 7, Honor Community Health and Delta Dental Foundation brought their mobile dental unit to Pontiac. I am working toward the swift passage of House Bill 4223 so more dental services can be provided as a part of early screening to children entering our school system.
Honor Community Health and Delta Dental are already doing this important work by providing these critical services to our teens and dental information and resources at community events. I would also like to extend my thanks to the Baldwin Center for hosting this significant floss cutting ceremony.
Giving Back to the Community
Giving back is what we do, so thank you to Pontiac School District for supporting our homeless children with the essentials they need during the school year. I would also like to thank the Oakland County Poverty and Homelessness Task Force for their donation in support of our children.
On Aug. 9, we met at Herrington Elementary in Pontiac to walk the community and connect with our neighbors. Thanks to my special guests Reps. Rabhi, Yancey, Love, Whitsett, Anthony and Bolden for coming out to help. During the walk we handed out surveys to ensure that I can best represent your priorities in Lansing. If you would like a survey or want to join me next time in getting to know the families of our community please contact my office by email or by phone at (517) 373-0475.
Thank you for taking the time to read this newsletter. I hope that you found the information helpful.
