A Word From Rep. John Proos (R-St. Joseph, 79th District)

State Rep. John Proos is one of those people whom I have come to know by being involved in local politics. Even though he is not my state representative, I have been impressed with his stands on the issues that face Michigan. At my request, he sent me this information about the new Strategic Task Force on Jobs. If anyone in state government can do a good job on this front, it is Rep. Proos.

Do you have any thoughts you'd like to share with him? Contact Rep. Proos here.


June 2009

We are all feeling the effects of Michigan's struggling economy and we must continue to be proactive in creating solutions. If we want to move our state forward, let's get the momentum started.

I have always believed in the potential of Michigan's citizens to bring jobs to our great state. This is why I am proud to announce that I have been appointed as chair of the newly-created Strategic Task Force on Jobs. This committee will hold hearings across the state, talking to business owners, employees, experts and officials on how to create and improve Michigan's jobs situation. We will strive to find new ideas and new concepts to help implement a long-term and strategic policy solution.

Since our goal is to enact real reform, we want to learn from the true experts on Michigan's economy - citizens, teachers, businessmen, farmers - who every day see opportunities for change.

This will not be yet another dust-gathering report from Lansing. Rather, we will take your ideas and suggestions to heart, while working to make our state a better place to live, work and raise a family.

We're all in this together, and we can restore vitality to our great state's economy.
