Pontiac Veterans Day Parade

Veterans Day is once again upon us! Come celebrate and honor our American heroes on Nov. 11 at 1 pm starting at Pontiac City Hall. I will be joined at the parade by my friend and veteran Bill Maxey, pictured below in white. Veterans Day is not only a very special day to honor the veterans we stand alongside but also a day to remember those we have lost. American military servicemen and women do so much for our country — from protecting our freedoms and way of life to upholding the American values of freedom and democracy around the world — veterans deserve more than one day in their honor. This year, I invite you to honor the dedication and service of our veterans by joining with the whole Pontiac community at the Veterans Day Parade on Nov. 11.

Pontiac Senior Summit

This October, I was honored to join state Sen. Jeremy Moss as a speaker at his annual Senior Summit in Pontiac. Sen. Moss and I were joined by Welcome Missionary Baptist Church Pastor Douglas P. Jones, Pontiac Mayor Tim Greimel, Oakland County Executive David Coulter, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel, and many more! The senator and I gathered with these leaders to address issues involving the senior community, speak with community members and answer questions from our constituents. This event was a great opportunity to hear from our community on how we can best serve you! I hope you were able to join us, but if not, I hope to see you next year!
