State Representatives from Genesee County today took part in White Shirt Day, wearing white to mark the end of the famous Flint Sit-Down Strike in 1937 and the 84th Anniversary of the first United Auto Workers contract with General Motors. The House also adopted House Resolution 31 officially declaring Feb. 11 as White Shirt Day in the state of Michigan. From left, State Reps. John Cherry, Tim Sneller, Mike Mueller, Cynthia Neeley and David Martin show off their attire during House session.
State Rep. David Martin this week took action to put a check on the actions of the Legislature during the “lame duck” session – a first and important step in restoring the public’s trust in their state government.
Rep. Martin talks about his House Resolution calling on the National Guard Bureau to immediately end the food contract for the 1,000 Michigan National Guard service members currently deployed to Washington, D.C., and provide a per diem food allowance backdated to the start of mobilization.
