WINDING DOWN 2018
Greetings. We’ve come to the end of the year, and I can truly say that I am proud to call District 62 and all of Michigan my home. We’ve seen growth this year in our local econo- my. We’ve seen some losses, as well, but let’s all have faith that, with our impressive national economy, that great things are continuing for the district.
As we wind down 2018, the State Legislature is in lame duck session from now until the end of the year, where some 350 bills are expect-
ed to be taken up on the House of Representatives floor. There will be some long days and evenings in Lansing in the coming weeks.
The public is welcome to watch session live on House TV, which can be found online at house.mich- igan.gov.
In addition, if there are any state-related issues you’re having trouble navigating, please contact my office before the end of the year and someone will assist you.
As a member of the 99th State Legislature, it has been my plea- sure to serve you in the capacity of State Representative. I took office in January 2015 in my first term and set out to make a difference for our
district. In 2017, you believed in
me enough to re-elect me to anoth- er two-year term in the Michigan House, and I thank you. I helped make an impact in the areas of health prescription cost-savings, sponsored several bills aimed at improving
state veterans affairs, record fund- ing to K-12 education in Michigan, improved transparency (FOIA) in the Michigan House of Representatives and much more.
In January 2019, I will begin my first term as Senator John Bizon,
a member of the Michigan Senate.
I recently was elected as Assistant Majority Whip. I look forward to continuing to serve not only Calhoun County but also Barry County and Ionia County. We’re going to get some work done to keep Michigan on an upward trend.
Thank you to all of my support- ers – I could not do this work with- out you. To all of my constituents, my goal has always been to serve from the State of Michigan on your behalf, and I will be there if you need me.
Until 2019, have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Remain safe during the holiday season and should you need to contact the office, please email drjohnbizon@house.mi.gov or call (517) 373-0555.

Get creative with your decorating this holiday season with two craft events hosted by the W.K. Kellogg Biological Station (KBS) Conference Center and Manor House!
On December 3, learn how you can extend your garden season by filling your outdoor planter boxes with fresh cut greens and season-
al items at the Winter Planter Box class. Accent your pots and window boxes while filling a container suit- able for outdoor use with freshly cut local greens, bright stems, berries and other finds.
On December 6 enjoy the first ever Holiday Canvas Paint Party. Local artists will guide you step by
step as you create a fantastic holiday canvas to take home. Cash bar and munchies will be available.
The cost for each event is $45/ participant (or $40 for current KBS members), which includes all sup- plies, although bringing your own shears or sharp pruners and garden gloves is recommended for the plant- er box class. Advance registration is required.
All events will be held from 6-8pm in the KBS Carriage House Classroom, located at 3700 E. Gull Lake Dr., in Hickory Corners. To learn more, visit conference.kbs.msu. edu, call (269) 671-2400, or email conference@kbs.msu.edu.
