Rep. Mike Harris, R-Waterford, invites U.S. military veterans to join him for a roundtable discussion next week.
Harris will join American Legion Chief Pontiac Post 377 for the roundtable at 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 24th. The roundtable will be at the American Legion post located at 4819 Mary Sue Ave. in Clarkston.
Harris will provide a legislative update and solicit feedback from veterans at the event.
“Military veterans are true heroes who put their lives on the line to protect our freedoms and way of life,” Harris said. “We must continue working to improve benefits for veterans in recognition of their service and sacrifice. This roundtable is one way to hear about concerns and gather feedback on issues that are important to veterans and our state.”
“Ethical questions continue to swirl about Rep. Witwer’s business ties and her actions as a legislator, and now we learn the committee room in her Capitol suite has doubled as an event venue, in violation of House rules,” Harris said.
“Countless Michiganders carry concealed weapons to defend themselves and their families, and unelected commissioners shouldn’t unilaterally take that right away in the Capitol that belongs to the people of our state,” said Harris, R-Waterford.
“These shocking revelations set off alarm bells about Chair Witwer’s business ties and possible conflicts of interest, and they clearly illustrate the need for greater transparency and stronger ethical standards in Michigan government,” said Harris, R-Waterford.
