State Rep. Pat Outman, of Six Lakes, has announced an upcoming office hours event on Monday, Feb. 27 for people across the 91st Michigan House District in Montcalm, Ionia and Kent counties to meet and speak with their state representative.
The office hours meeting will run from 2-3 p.m. at the Montcalm Township Hall, located at 1880 S. Greenville Road in Greenville.
“I look forward to speaking with residents, answering their questions and listening to their concerns,” Outman said. “These are tremendous opportunities to meet face-to-face with people and have a chat about the latest that’s going on both locally and in Lansing.”
Those who are unable to attend can contact Outman’s office by phone at (517) 373-3436 or email [email protected].
“Michigan families are tired of shelling out for high electric bills and being rewarded with power outages every time it storms. That’s the problem I’m focused on solving,” said Outman, R-Six Lakes, a member of the House Energy, Communications and Technology Committee. “The Democrats in control have another agenda. They’re pushing extreme mandates that cater to the environmental lobby while sticking residents with even higher costs for less reliability.”
The governor plans to give state government the power to permit solar projects by shifting control away from local government.
“Large-scale solar projects could have significant ramifications in some communities. Local officials know what’s best in their unique corners of the state,” Outman said. “The governor should respect their roles and stay out of community-level issues. My Republican colleagues are digging in our heels when it comes to maintaining local control.”
