LANSING — Tonight, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer delivered her first State of the State address, outlining her vision for the state and calling for bipartisan collaboration to address the issues facing Michigan’s working families. In response, state Rep. Terry Sabo (D-Muskegon) issued the following statement:

“A thriving Michigan starts with support of our local businesses, first responders, public schools and skilled trades training to drive growth and move our economy forward. When Michiganders are earning a fair wage and spending in their communities – that is when our local economies are at their best. I am also encouraged by Gov. Whitmer’s vision for how to fix our roads and infrastructure, and am looking forward to working with her on policies that put Michigan’s hard-working families first.”

Rep. Sabo was joined by Muskegon Township Supervisor, Jennifer Hernandez for the address.
