Traveling the District
Monroe County Veterans Fair
This week we held a Veterans Fair in Monroe County to help connect veterans and their families with resources earned with their service to our country. Thanks to VFW Post 1138 and all the participating organizations for helping make it a success.
Northfield Township Coffee Hour
Thank you to everyone who came out for my coffee hour this week in Northfield Township. I've held them in every county in the 7th District, and I look forward to continuing to hear from you as I travel the district.
Eaton County Senior Fair
My office hosted a Senior Resource Fair this week at the Eaton Area Senior Center in Charlotte. Thanks to all the community organizations who were on hand and to my constituent relations team who provides assistance with Medicare and Social Security difficulties.
Strengthening Career and Technical Education
I hosted a panel discussion at the Hillsdale Community Library this week with local education and business leaders. We discussed strengthening career and technical education and expanding opportunities for more aspiring workers to enter the workforce with the skills they need to compete for in-demand jobs. Thank you to the representatives from the Hillsdale Area Career Center, Hillsdale Economic Development Partnership, Litchfield Regional Training Center, and Martinrea for serving as panelists.
Tax Cuts are Working
Since the tax cut law was enacted, the positive benefits have been resonating across the country. In total, nearly 400 companies have announced more than $3 billion — and counting — in bonuses for millions of Americans. This week I stopped by Cintas' facility in Delta Township, where employees have received a $1,000 bonus due to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
