Rep. Jim Tedder, R- Clarkston far left, attended the second annual KidSpeak event in Oakland County on Monday, Jan. 26. The event gives a voice to local youth in the foster care system. “I was honored to be a part of this event,” Tedder said. “The kids deserve to have a forum to discuss their experience and to have an audience that is passionate about increasing awareness and promoting positive change is wonderful.”
