State Rep. Bradley Slagh, of Zeeland, invites residents to join him for his local office hours this month in Holland, Hudsonville and Zeeland.
Local office hours are an opportunity for residents to meet face-to-face with the representative to share their thoughts, questions and concerns.
No appointments are necessary to attend. The meetings will be held at the following times and locations:
- Thursday, March 18
- From 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at BAM! Entertainment Center located at 478 E. 16th St. in Holland
- Friday, March 19

“Each month I look forward to meeting with my constituents here in West Michigan to listen to their thoughts and ideas,” Slagh said. “It’s my job to stand up for what’s important to people and families in our local communities and work to bring them solutions.”
The legislator recently introduced a measure to regulate the use of the state’s emergency alert system. As chair of the House Appropriations Corrections Subcommittee, Slagh is also actively investigating a potential transparency issue that occurred within the state’s Department of Technology, Management and Budget when a new prison health care and pharmacy services contract was quietly awarded on a Friday. The representative said he looks forward to discussing these issues in addition to any other concerns or ideas brought up by community members in attendance.
Those who are unable to attend Rep. Slagh’s local office hours, but would still like to share thoughts or concerns with him, may contact his Lansing office at (517) 373-00830 or [email protected].
“I was excited to vote yes for the citizens’ initiative repealing the 1945 Emergency Powers of the Governor Act. This act was used in ways that usurped the checks and balances that are guaranteed in our state’s constitution. One person should never have the power to silence the voice of the people and eliminate the ability for the Legislature to enact policies for the betterment of our state.”
State Rep. Brad Slagh, of Zeeland, today introduced a bill, which received bipartisan cosponsorship, to improve the process of renewing a driver’s license or vehicle registration in the state of Michigan while preventing unfair fees.
