State Rep. Bradley Slagh, of Zeeland, is joined by his guest, Holland Township Fire Chief Jim Kohsel, in front of the Capitol Building today for the annual Michigan House of Representatives 9-11 Memorial Ceremony. Legislators invited first responders and members of the military from their communities to be their guests for the service. The ceremony included the ringing of a fire bell for those who died in the line of duty in the past year throughout Michigan.
“I had a perfect voting record going into the last two weeks of House session when I unfortunately tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. In keeping with House protocol, as well as CDC guidelines, I fulfilled the required days of quarantine. As I had no choice but to stay home from Lansing for the last week of session, I sadly missed 62 votes.
