Statement from State Rep. Winnie Brinks on the vote for the Speaker of the Michigan House of Representatives:

Thursday, January 10, 2013

“This week, I went to work for middle-class families and our kids to change the toxic culture of Lansing. I cast my vote for Jase Bolger for Speaker Wednesday because it’s time to stop fighting yesterday’s battles and to start working for the citizens of Grand Rapids. For too long, we were represented by a career politician who cared more about his self-interest than about what’s best for families in West Michigan. I am ready to begin as a fresh, effective voice for our district.”
