State Rep. Brad Slagh, of Zeeland, issued the following statement regarding the unfortunate and unacceptable event that occurred at the United States Capital today:
“I am saddened by what I am seeing, as should all Americans. We are a nation of freedoms, bound together by laws, and while many may be disappointed by the outcome of the election, it can’t be changed by violating those laws. If there are needed changes that will make our election process better, then we must go through the normal channels to make those changes and have a civil debate. Acceptable changes will not come through violence, intimidation, threats, or the destruction of property. The shameful and disgusting actions of some in Washington, D.C. need to stop immediately, and those directly responsible for any injuries or the loss of life or damage to property need to be held fully accountable. This is not who we are, or who we should be, and we ALL must do better in our public discourse and conduct.”
State Rep. Bradley Slagh, of Zeeland, has completed his first term as state representative with a perfect voting record, casting a vote on all 1,027 recorded roll-call votes between January 2019 and December 2020.
“As we approach the planned end of this round of the governor’s shut-down of in-person dining and other activities on Jan. 15, I am urging Gov. Whitmer to honor her word and allow affected businesses to reopen and serve their customers in a safe manner, as we know they can do.
Rep. Bradley Slagh today voted in favor of funding to help Michigan distribute COVID-19 vaccine and boost testing while helping those whose livelihoods have been disrupted by the virus and economic shutdowns.
