With the dawning of a new year and a seemingly endless election cycle in the rearview mirror, there are some significant changes in some major roles in local government underway. With new leaders in the Lapeer County law enforcement community, the 10th Congressional District and on a variety of local school and municipal boards it can be difficult to keep up.
But keeping up with the political and governmental goings on is instrumental when it comes to assuring that our elected officials are doing what they were elected to do; using their time responsibly and expending their energy toward goals they set on the campaign trail.
To help area readers out, we've updated our lists of contacts in local government and beyond. Residents interested in contacting their representative and/or elected official to address concerns, to bring up issues or to attend a municipal meeting can easily do so by referring to the contact list printed in this issue on page 13-A, and posted year round, 24/7 on our website at www.tricitytimes-online.com.
This is yet another valued service we're proud to provide in our hyper-local pages and in the digital sphere. As always, Tri-City Times aims to be "your hometown newspaper," today and always. Here's to a great start for all in 2017!
