Politically Speaking

Many local elected officials braved Friday's snow storm to come out to the Chamber's Political Hot Topics. They  fielded

The dialogue   revealed the Macomb delegation as a highly bi-partisan group in their working for their communities and constituents. The Chamber sends out thanks to State Representatives William SowerbyJohn Chirkun, Kevin HertelPatrick GreenHenry YanezJeff Yaroch, Shelby Township Supervisor Rick Stathakis, and Senior Community Outreach Coordinator Don Brown for their attendance and information.
