June 27th Legislative Luncheon

June 27th Legislative Luncheon

The political climate is changing in Lansing.  It seems that leadership is genuinely attempting to restore Michigan's economic strength.  
 
The Coopersville Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to bring three of our local legislators to our community to discuss the challenges and opportunities available to your business.  
 
Joining us will be U.S. House of Representative Bill Huizinga for District 2; State Representative Dave Agema with the 74th District; State Senator Arlan Meekhoff from District 30 and moderated by WZZM TV 13's Senior Reporter Peter Ross.
 
This program will also include input from you, so bring your questions that address your priorities and your challenges.

Did you vote today?

I went and voted after work today. I walked in to the polling place and there were no other voters there, just the ladies working. When I was finished voting, the machine sucked in my ballot and said I was number 59. I said to the ladies "Not a very busy day today, I am number 59". They informed me that I was only the 8th or 9th person to vote today and the rest were absentee votes. I starred at them in disbelief.

The last couple of days have been filled with sorrow, celebration, reflection and being a proud American. As I left the polling place, I pondered what I had just heard. If you are a proud American, why aren't people voting today? It is one of the greatest responsbilies we have as adults. I couldn't wait to turn 18 so I could go to the fire barn in Coopersville and vote. I voted around 530pm and I am hoping that many more people took the opportunity to vote tonight.

If you don't vote, you don't have a say in the outcome!
