Rep. Bronna Kahle today hosted family members of a fallen Michigan Department of Corrections employee during a special Michigan House of Representatives ceremony.
The annual ceremony honors those fallen in the line of duty in Michigan, along with a remembrance of the 9/11 terrorist attacks from 2001.
Among those honored in the ceremony was Randy Rumler of Adrian, who died July 3 of this year from COVID-19. He was 55. His wife, Alisha, and daughter, Raelynn, attended today’s ceremony.
For more than two decades, Randy Rumler worked as a corrections officer at the Gus Harrison Correctional Facility in Lenawee County. He also was an Army veteran.
“Randy Rumler was a dedicated public servant who worked on the front lines to help protect us all – even during a devastating global pandemic,” Kahle said. “His selflessness and service should be remembered and honored, and that is what this ceremony at the state Capitol is all about.”
State Rep. TC Clements (Temperance) and State Rep. Bronna Kahle (Adrian) today expressed frustration and deep disappointment in the governor’s recent order which includes extending the prohibition on contact sports, specifically affecting high school competitions across the state.
State Rep. Bronna Kahle, of Adrian, today was sworn in for her third and final term as a Michigan state representative by House Clerk Gary Randall. The 101st Michigan Legislature today began session following the swearing-in ceremony.
