At a 9/11 ceremony at the state Capitol, state Rep. Doug Wozniak today paid tribute to Clinton Township Police Chief Fred Posavetz, who passed away from COVID-19.
Wozniak was joined by Posavetz’s wife, Marsha, at the ceremony.
“Chief Posavetz was a titan in Macomb County, and his legacy is an example to all,” said Wozniak, of Shelby Township. “Our community is a better, safer place because of the honorable service of Chief Posavetz.”
The Michigan House of Representatives today conducted its annual ceremony commemorating the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. At the memorial, legislators also recognize Michigan first responders and members of the military who died in the line of duty during the last year.
Posavetz, who resided in Washington Township, served at the Clinton Township Police Department for 41 years, becoming chief in 2007. He passed away in March after a battle with COVID-19.
Following bipartisan approval of the annual budget for state government on Wednesday, Rep. Doug Wozniak today shared how the plan will support job creation and construct roads and other infrastructure in Michigan.
“The Constitution is the foundation of our American republic, serving as a source of inspiration for the pursuit of freedom and justice around the world. We should be thankful for the blessings of our forefathers to give us a form of government that has served us well for more than two centuries.
On September 9, the Michigan House of Representatives commemorated the 20th anniversary of the deadly terror attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. We honored not only those killed by these attacks but also the service and dedication of all first responders from around our great state.
In a special way, the House honored the lives and memory of first responders who had passed away within the past year. It was my privilege to host Marsha Posavetz at the event to honor the life and memory of her husband, Fred Posavetz, who served as the Chief of Clinton Township Police for fourteen years before passing away due to COVID-19 on March 22, 2021.
