Rep. Mike Harris, R-Waterford, recently participated in a roundtable discussion with U.S. military veterans and their families.
Harris joined American Legion Chief Pontiac Post 377 for the event, which was held on Oct. 24th. Harris provided a legislative update and solicited feedback from attendees with the goal of improving services for veterans.
“I want to thank the American Legion for hosting this event, and express my appreciation for the veterans and families who participated,” Harris said. “Veterans have made countless sacrifices to protect our way of life. Events like this one will help our efforts to improve the services that military veterans and their families have earned and rely on every day.”
Those who were unable to attend may contact Harris’ Lansing office at (517) 373-0615 or MikeHarris@house.mi.gov.
“Staffing shortages abound in police departments around the state — putting communities at greater risk,” said Harris, R-Waterford. “We need to fill the void, get more officers on the street, and put critical, up-to-date tools in their hands.”
“Carrying out the will of the voters to finally make elected officials reveal their personal finances was the Legislature’s number one job this year, and that’s why my Republican colleagues and I rolled out a real transparency plan months ago,” said Harris, who serves on the House Ethics and Oversight Committee.
“Drawn-out power outages have kept Michigan families in the dark for days on end, but this Green New Deal will take this bad systemic problem and make it worse,” said Harris, R-Waterford.
