State Rep. Mary Whiteford was joined by 6,594 residents on Tuesday night during her live tele-town hall update on recently passed auto insurance reforms.
“The biggest priority for my constituents since I’ve been in office has been meaningful auto insurance reform and this tele-town hall was a great way to reach out and let them know we got the job done,” Whiteford said. “I appreciate people taking the time to learn more about the reforms to take effect next year.”
Residents who participated were able to ask questions of both Rep. Whiteford and her guest, Rep. Jason Wentworth of Clare. Rep. Wentworth serves as chair of the House Select Committee on Reducing Car Insurance Rates and was the lead for the state House in crafting the auto insurance reforms passed earlier this year.
Anyone unable to participate in the tele-town hall event or who has questions related to state government may contact Rep. Whiteford at (517) 373-0836 or email [email protected].
