Hammond State of State Reaction: we must respect our taxpayers

MACOMB – Assistant House Republican Leader Norine Hammond (R-Macomb) issued the following statement following the Governor’s State of the State Address:

“Two important aspects of the Governor’s speech stood out to me.  The first is that nothing has changed with the geography of our state and its natural assets and resources.  This is still a great State.  We’ve been successful and competitive in the past and have every opportunity to be so again.  Second, is the Governor’s statement that we ‘must respect our taxpayers’.  This is critical in all we do,” said Rep. Hammond from Springfield on Wednesday.

Hammond encouraged residents of the 93rd district to contact her with questions or concerns on this or any other state issue. Hammond’s Macomb district office can be contacted at (309) 836-2707.
