Rep. Meerman issued the following statement today addressing misconceptions about the Ottawa County Health Department’s annual budget:
“Office hours are the best way for folks to let me know about the issues that matter most to them,” Meerman said. “It’s also a great opportunity for me to communicate all that’s been happening in Lansing. I’d encourage everyone to attend so we can discuss how to make Michigan the best it can be.”
Rep. Meerman today shared his disappointment with the governor’s recent proposal to divert $670 million from the Michigan Public School Employee’s Retirement System (MPSERS), which is currently $30 million in debt.
“We have a duty to prioritize the well-being and security of our state and the people we represent,” said Meerman. “The Ford-CATL project warrants careful reassessment in light of the alarming information emerging about CATL’s operations and affiliations.”
I had the profound displeasure of witnessing the Governor’s State of the State address. To hear the Governor tout progress at a time when mothers and fathers in my district are questioning whether they must find a second job just to keep up with their grocery bill shows her utter disconnect from the working families of Michigan.
