State Rep. Joe Bellino, of Monroe, today honored Darrian Young, who served as Monroe County Sheriff’s Office animal control officer, during a special memorial service at the state Capitol.
Young died June 6, 2020 while on the line of duty.
“My heart and prayers go out to Darrian’s family – she was so young, and her life was lost way too soon,” Bellino said. “Not just today, but always, we must remember those who put their lives at risk every single day so that we can enjoy our freedoms and live comfortably.”

Since Michigan students were sent home at the start of the coronavirus pandemic in March, the question arose: What would fall look like for our schools? What would students and teachers face in a new academic year? It was a question in Michigan and all across the country.
“This was a major step in the right direction for Michiganders throughout the state,” Bellino said. “My colleagues and I stand ready to work with the governor in the best interests of our families, from Wayne and Monroe counties all the way to the Upper Peninsula. We are strong here in Michigan, and we will get through the rest of this pandemic together.”
