Rep. Annette Glenn with Midland firefighter Justin Fox at the state Capitol in Lansing.
Rep. Annette Glenn today commemorated a fallen police officer and hosted a Midland firefighter at a special ceremony at the Michigan Capitol.
Glenn honored Michael Andrews, an officer with Saginaw Township and Tittabawassee Township. Andrews, a former Michigan State Police trooper who lived in Midland, died of COVID-19 complications in May.
Glenn invited Justin Fox of the Midland Fire Department to attend the Capitol ceremony.
The ceremony marks the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, honors first responders and military members who protect us every day, and remembers those in Michigan who have died in the line of duty.
“Michael Andrews and Justin Fox, like all first responders in our community and military members in our armed forces, deserve our thanks and admiration,” said Glenn, R-Midland. “I am privileged and honored to take place in this solemn ceremony remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice and thanking those who remain on the front lines protecting us every day.”
Rep. Glenn talks about this Saturday, July 30 as the World Day Against Trafficking in Persons. Rep. Glenn has been a leader in combating human trafficking in Michigan over the last several years, and has related legislation under discussion in the House Judiciary Committee and pending on the House floor.
Rep. Annette Glenn, R-Midland, today said that providing comprehensive tax relief for Michigan families is “absolutely essential” – but Gov. Whitmer has not demonstrated she truly wants to be a partner in the process.
