LANSING — Gov. Whitmer appointed state Rep. Angela Witwer (Delta Township) to the Michigan Opioid Task Force Advisory Group, which will serve as a resource to the task force, assisting them in curbing the opioid crisis in Michigan.

“This is an issue that is plaguing communities all across our state,” said Witwer. “Addressing this crisis will require critical thinking and bold action, and I am honored by the opportunity to do my part in working to protect the families of Michigan.”

The Advisory Group will consist of one Democrat and one Republican from both the House and Senate. The Task Force decided to form the Advisory Group as a ‘thought partner’ in their work as a way to better represent the voices of diverse perspectives, industries and geographic regions of the state.
