Lansing, MI- The Capitol was bustling as Senators and Representatives from around the state and their guests gathered to hear Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s first State of the State address.
In the hour before the speech, guests mingled in the common areas, munching on food at receptions and posing for photos to remember the day. Afterwards officials shared their views on Whitmer’s address and the direction Michigan is moving in.
State Senator Rosemary Bayer of Beverly Hills chimed in on another hot topic – the roads. “Michiganders deserve safe roads to their schools, offices, businesses and homes. It’s time we fix our roads. Michigan drivers have been paying more in taxes at the pump and for car registration, yet the roads in Oakland County — and across our state — are crumbling. I am grateful for Gov. Whitmer’s commitment to ensure families and businesses have the reliable connections they need, and I look forward to working with her.”
