May Small Business of the Month

Starting in May, I am going to recognize one business as “Small Business of the Month”. Small businesses are the heart of our communities and the dedicated people who operate them deserve their hard work and contributions to be acknowledged. Please let me know if you have a business that you think should be recognized.


Mass Vaccination Site Opens in Pontiac

On April 2 I joined elected leaders from all levels of government to commemorate the opening of the mass vaccination site in Pontiac! This vaccination site is at the United Wholesale Mortgage Sports Complex located at 867 South Blvd. E.

The site is expected to give 1,000-3,000 shots per day but can administer up to 5,000! If you have not been able to receive your vaccine as of this time, I highly encourage you to click here and register for an appointment.
