State Rep. Julie Calley today invited residents to attend her April office hours in Lake Odessa and Hastings.
“I look forward to connecting with people in our community each month, listening to their thoughts, and hearing about the issues that matter most to their families,” said Calley, of Portland. “I know many people are struggling right now. I’m available to help in any way I can.”
The informal meetings will take place Friday, April 30, at the following times and locations:
- From 10 to 11 a.m. at the Lake Odessa Village Offices, 839 Fourth Avenue in Lake Odessa, and
- From 1 to 2 p.m. at the Barry County Tyden Center, 121 Church Street in Hastings.
No appointment is necessary to attend.
Calley is also planning a virtual option for community members who are unable to attend the in-person events. Citizens are welcomed to schedule a Zoom appointment between 7 and 8 p.m. on the evening of April 29. More timeslots are available should that hour fill up. Please email [email protected] or call (517) 373-0842 to schedule a virtual meeting.
“I’m proud of the many, many Michiganders who stood up and took action to make certain that such a power grab never happens again,” said Calley, of Portland. “The people of our state are much better off when our government leaders work collaboratively to solve our state’s problems.”
“For far too long, kids in our local school districts have gotten less funding than those in more affluent areas of the state,” Calley said. “I’ve been fighting to right this wrong since I started serving. Whether they live in a small town or a bigger city, all Michigan students deserve equal funding. This budget finally accomplishes that goal.”
