State Rep. Jeff Yaroch of Richmond hosted Macomb Township firefighter Joseph Warne and his wife Kristie, on Wednesday for the Sept. 11 Memorial Service at the State Capitol. Earlier this year, firefighter Warne walked across the state in his firefighting gear to support firefighters who are battling cancer. The observance memorializes Michigan first responders and military members who died in the line of duty during the past year.
“Everyone involved wants to do what’s best for our students, educators, school employees and their families,” Yaroch said. “That’s why we worked hard on this plan to ensure bipartisan support on a very challenging issue during these trying times. This plan provides a good way forward for local districts to work within our communities and make decisions that are safe and sensible.”
