Michigan Township Association Education Conference

Alpine Township Officials and Board Members attended the Michigan Township's Association's Annual Education Conference this week at Traverse City. The conference was attended by State wide Township elected officials and guests and offered many educational topics and updates.  Next year's conference will be in Grand Rapids.

One of the highlights of the conference was our State Senator Mark Jansen being recognized as Legislator of the Year.  Michigan Township Association's Executive Director Larry Merrill praised Senator Mark Jansen and remarked that Senator Jansen's support for local government did not surface some of the time but was present consistently.  Exemplifying Senator Jansen's support for the local municipalities within his legislative boundaries was the fact that he took the time Thursday evening to find Alpine Township representatives among the more than 1,200 people in the audience.   We salute Senator Jansen for his support and his efforts to stay in touch with his local constituents.
