LANSING, Mich., Nov. 9, 2021 — House Democratic Leader Donna Lasinski (D-Scio Township) issued the following statement following the passing of Kelly Rossman-McKinney:

“Lansing has lost a towering force of strength. Kelly Rossman-McKinney was an inspiration to countless women in Michigan politics over a decades-long career. From a legislative aide to founding a powerhouse public relations firm, Kelly blazed a one-of-a-kind trail that won’t be forgotten. I, along with the entire House Democratic Caucus, send my sincere condolences to her family and children.”
