New Western Michigan University Student Center 

It was great to tour the new WMU Student Center and renovation work on Dunbar Hall on Friday, August 25, with Representative Christine Morse and Representative Julie Rogers. These new facilities are fantastic additions to campus. Go Broncos!

A resource my office has to offer, but many may not know about, are constituent publications! The Michigan Legislature produces several publications full of useful information for constituents to use, and my office can provide them.

Some of our most popular publications are our Constituent’s Guide, the U.S. and Michigan Constitutions, Services for Seniors and Veterans Benefits. Many of these publications include how-to guides for forms and services that can be very helpful.

Please reach out to my office if you are interested in learning more or would like us to send you any copies.
