Dear Friends,


Information is power! That is why I work so hard to keep you up to date on the issues that matter most through my newsletters and community meetings. In October I hosted five Community Conversations on a range of topics including the state budget, the Border to Border Trail, and the rights and responsibilities of returning citizens.


On Monday, November 18, I am hosting two separate Community Conversations to discuss senior issues.


At 9:30 a.m. the topic will be senior safety and elder abuse with special guest Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel. The location is the Huron Valley PACE, 2940 Ellsworth Road in Ypsilanti.


Then, at 6:30 p.m. at the Riverside Arts Center, 76 N. Huron St., I will host a conversation focused on senior housing with special guest, Michigan State Housing Development Authority, Director Gary Heidel.


On Tuesday, November 19, at 6:30 p.m. I will host a community conversation on the expungement legislation that just recently passed the Michigan House of Representatives. If this package of bills is signed into law, it could have a significant positive impact on the lives of thousands of citizens with nonviolent convictions on their records. Please join me and my special guests state Rep. Tenisha Yancey, state Rep. David LaGrand and attorney Robyn McCoy at the Ypsilanti Community and Senior Center, 1015 N. Congress St in Ypsilanti.


Thank you, and I hope to see you at each of these three events,





Ronnie Peterson

State Representative
