Governor Rick Snyder has put his reputation on the line in support of State Rep. Dave Maturen with an appearance at a fundraiser in his behalf. The Governor will be at the home of Jim and Bev Haas on Indian Lake. It’s billed as Lunch at the Lake from 12:30 to 2 p.m., Friday, June 8.
Rep. Maturen is a candidate for his third term in the Michigan legislature and will face Paul Foust and Matt Hall in the Republican August primary ballot. He has sponsored major legislation in the taxation and assessment areas and has also been a good friend of the Vicksburg school system, according to Superintendent Charlie Glaes. His 63rd district includes Kalamazoo County east of Sprinkle Road and much of Calhoun County. He was chair of the Kalamazoo County Board of Commissioners before going to Lansing.
The host committee is composed of Sen. Tonya Schuitmaker, Sen. Margaret O’Brien and her husband, Nick, Sen. Tom George and his wife, Sandy, Congressman Fred Upton, Bill and Barbara Parfet and Ron and Lyn Kitchens.
