State Rep. Sarah Lightner will host a town hall meeting with special guest Transportation Committee Chairman Rep. Jack O’Malley of Lake Ann on Wednesday, June 12 to discuss road funding in Michigan.

“When we talk about road funding, it is clear we need innovative ideas,” Rep. Lightner said. “I am committed to ensuring the people of Jackson, Eaton, and Lenawee counties are not left behind when it comes to fixing our roads. This event is a great opportunity to hear your thoughts and have a conversation about what has been done and still needs to happen. I hope to see you there and hear your questions and ideas.”

Rep. O’Malley chairs the House Transportation Committee and is working with fellow House members on innovative approaches to road funding and repairs. To that end, he is traveling across the state to discuss the issue with local residents.

The event will be held at the Blackman Township Hall, 1990 W. Parnall Road in Blackman Township. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for registration and an opportunity to talk with Rep. Lightner and guest speakers. The program will run from 6 to 7 p.m. with time for questions from those in attendance. There is no cost to attend.
