|Rep. Gary Glenn|
Rep. Gary Glenn has been named Freshman Legislator of the Year by the Michigan Information and Research Service (MIRSNews.com).
Glenn’s selection from among 44 first-term state representatives and 10 first-time state senators was announced on MIRS Monday, a weekly podcast featuring a round table discussion by MIRS state Capitol reporters that focused primarily on Glenn’s bipartisan leadership on this year’s energy policy debate in Lansing.
Glenn, R-Midland, is vice-chairman of the Energy Policy Committee in the state House of Representatives.
“It’s been a long time since I was a ‘freshman’ at anything,” Glenn said, jokingly. “But in all seriousness, whatever honor this recognition may be, it simply reflects the very serious commitment I’ve made to work and study hard and do the best, most conscientious job I can for the people of Bay and Midland counties and our entire state. I’ve also taken very seriously a speech by Dow CEO Andrew Liveris, who said that if we want continued expansion of Dow operations in mid-Michigan in the future, we have to have a more forward-looking energy policy that produces more competitive electricity rates.”
