Wendzel said. “I’m bringing in the best of the best, Representative Wentworth and Senator Nesbitt, to explain our historic auto-insurance solution to the people of our community.  Senator LaSata and I will give updates on both the House and Senate road funding proposals while Mr. Latham gives an update on local projects happening right here in Berrien County.
