“I am pleased to be appointed to the House Committees on Education Reform, Judiciary, and Natural Resources. I am thrilled to be serving on the Education Reform Committee, as I am passionate about supporting and improving our schools. I look forward to working with my colleagues to ensure that our students receive the education and resources they need to be successful in college and in the workforce. Michigan is fortunate to have abundant natural resources, and I will work hard to improve our air and water quality and ensure that our natural resources are protected for future generations. I am excited to start serving on these committee and fighting for the residents of Clinton Township, Fraser and Mount Clemens.”
