State Rep. Beth Griffin announced today she will continue fighting to restore the $200,000 MEDC grant Paw Paw lost due to Governor Whitmer’s budget cuts last year.
“This is a slap in the face to the people of Southwest Michigan,” Griffin said. “I will not stand idly by as the governor plays political games and holds the people of Paw Paw hostage instead of addressing their needs.”
Rep. Griffin went on to say, “I applaud State Sen. Nesbitt and Paw Paw Village officials, Sarah Moyer-Cale and Roman Plaszczak, for taking a stand for our community and fighting against the Governor’s reckless budget decisions.”
Rep. Griffin plans to invite Paw Paw community leaders to the governor’s State of the State address on Jan. 29.
