MIRS News is reporting that after comparing all Michigan State House members in 2017, freshman legislator Shane Hernandez (R-Port Huron) was found to have the most conservative voting record.
MIRS News (also known as Michigan Information & Research Service Inc.) is Michigan’s oldest daily capitol newsletter, and is widely respected by Republicans and Democrats alike. Its rankings were based on 50 key votes this session as tabulated by MichiganVotes.org.
“I didn’t set out to be the most conservative member of the House,” said Hernandez. “I just want to do what’s best for Michigan taxpayers.”
“Coming into this year I heard all the stories about arm twisting that can go on in Lansing,” Hernandez continued, “But any time we disagree, we debate the issue and if there is still a difference of opinion, no one takes it personal. It’s been an honor serving with the whole leadership team.”
