My team and I are working hard to prepare for our upcoming summer events and are in-district passing out information to constituents like you. If you or a group you are a part of have upcoming events, please send an invite to my office.
If you see us on your street, feel free to say “Hi!” We are interested in the concerns you may have in your community and any concern about what is going on in Lansing. We are starting to prepare for a busy few months as we start the session in September, but until then, we are happy to engage with constituents and make ourselves available to you.
