Jan. 11 marked the first day of the 102nd Legislature of the state of Michigan. My wife, Kamilah, godson Tamarus Darby, legislative director Leaha Dotson and constituency director Rebecca Mackey joined me to commemorate this day. Tamarus Darby is the president of the Boys Nation organization. Boys Nation is an organization within the American Legion that provides students an opportunity to become part of the operation of local, county and state government.
