LANSING — Sen. Adam Hollier (D–Detroit) has issued the following statement on Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s State of the State address, during which she highlighted the need to build a strong economy through increased wages and access to affordable education:
“If Michigan wants to truly build an economy that works for everyone, we must focus on raising the quality of life for those at a disadvantage. I know many Detroiters who would like to earn more and afford their children the opportunity to attend college or learn a skilled trade. Gov. Whitmer understands the challenges facing my community and I will do everything I can to help because I know we can do better.
“As a member of the Appropriations committee, it’s important that we get the Great Start Readiness program and Reconnect funded to ensure every child has a chance to be successful, and that adults who need a career have an opportunity to provide for their families through community college and job training.”
Sen. Hollier represents the 2nd Senate District in Wayne County that includes the cities of Detroit, Grosse Pointe, Grosse Pointe Farms, Grosse Pointe Park, Grosse Pointe Woods, Hamtramck, Harper Woods and Highland Park, and the Village of Grosse Pointe Shores.
