Pints & Politics Community Conversation
DATE: Saturday, Nov. 19
TIME: 11 a.m. to noon
LOCATION: Kuhnhenn Brewing, 5919 Chicago Road in Warren
Stone Offers Resolution for the Memorial of Holodomor
From 1932-33, Ukraine suffered a terrible famine and genocide as a result of Soviet operations. Soviet authorities concealed and destroyed information about the events that would later be known as Holodomor. In the Ukrainian language, Holodomor translates to “extermination by means of starvation.” As a way to further recognize, across the globe, the tragic events that took place in Ukraine, I introduced a House Resolution to declare Nov. 28 as Holodomor Memorial Day in Michigan.
Fire Safety and Prevention Town Hall
Location: Center Line Fire Hall Station/City Hall
Address: 7070 E. 10 Mile Road in Center Line
Date: Tuesday, Nov. 29
Time: 7-8 p.m.
Community members are invited to attend an educational presentation on fire safety and prevention, including a tour of the Center Line Fire Hall Station facility. This event aims to help community members reduce the risk of property loss, injury and death caused by fire. Fire trucks and other public safety vehicles will be on site. Fire safety is more than stop, drop and roll. It’s not every day we get to hear from experts in the field of fire safety, get a safety demonstration and take a tour of the fire station. All community members, including children and families, are encouraged to attend. I hope to see you all there for this important and unique event — let’s help cultivate a safer and more knowledgeable community.
Manufacturing Day Event – Center Line Academy
On Thursday, Oct. 6, Center Line High School Academy Students participated in Manufacturing Day. I want to thank sponsoring organizations for including me on the Manufacturing Day Tour. It was an enlightening experience. It was informative to see what types of manufacturing positions are available and what we need to be preparing Michigan’s future workforce to do. These and other similar experiences will help fuel the talent pipeline and prepare the next generation for careers in our state.
Fellowships for Future Educators, Stipends for Student Teachers
Applications for $10,000 scholarships for up to 2,500 future Michigan educators, and $9,600 payments for student teachers has opened. To be eligible, future educators and current teachers must apply through the MiSSG Portal. Lowering the cost of higher education will encourage hiring and training more teachers. Getting this done will help bring down class sizes and provide individualized attention to support students. I am thankful for state funding in the bipartisan education budget, which also included the highest state per-student investment in Michigan history and record investments in school infrastructure, mental health and school safety.
