State Rep. Steve Johnson was pleased to welcome Gaines Township Supervisor Robert DeWard to the Capitol on Tuesday as his special guest for Gov. Rick Snyder’s annual State of the State address.

“I am honored to represent the residents of Gaines Township at this historic event,” said Supervisor DeWard. “I look forward to working alongside Rep. Johnson to accomplish great things for the people of West Michigan.”

Rep. Johnson, R-Wayland, issued the following statement regarding the governor’s address:

“I am eager to work with Gov. Snyder to continue Michigan’s comeback, and I will be working to reduce the size and scope of all aspects of state government. In order to keep our state’s economy strong, I agree with the governor that we must continue to be a leader in the nation in job growth and opportunity.”

“Whether it be skilled trades, education or sound financial management practices, let’s continue to get government out of the way and make Michigan a model for the nation to follow,” concluded Rep. Johnson.
