State Rep. Julie Calley today invited residents to attend her June office hours in Portland and Hastings.
“I deeply appreciate hearing from our communities and talking with the people that matter most,” said Calley, of Portland. “Sometimes the issues that resonate with everyday people and those I hear about in Lansing don’t match up, so it’s essential for me to be in-tune with the concerns of the people I serve.”
The informal meetings will take place Friday, June 25, at the following times and locations:
- From 10 to 11 a.m. at the Portland City Hall, 259 Kent Street in Portland; 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 in person. Please email [email protected] or call (517) 373-0842 to schedule a Zoom 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.”
