PHOTO INFORMATION: State Rep. Lynn Afendoulis of Grand Rapids Township welcomed Haley Denton, a student at Northview High School, to the House floor for Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s State of the State Address.
“I want to engage the citizens of my district in the government they fund,” Rep. Afendoulis said. “I want them to understand how their tax dollars are used, that nothing is free or without debt, and that they have a voice in the future of their state. I can think of no better way to do this than to involve our youth. I am delighted Haley could join me at the State of the State and hope it gave her a useful glimpse into her state government.”
