"It's a tremendous honor to receive the Michigan Association of Counties Legislator of the Year award," said Sen. Casperson. "MAC plays a critical role in advocating for the voice of local and county government, and working with MAC, we were able to make some critical reforms this past term, like the PILT reform and the Land Cap that provided for some fairness to local governments. By working with MAC, and its dedicated and thoughtful staff, we were able to educate legislators statewide on issues like these to make effective, important and long overdue changes that will allow counties a better opportunity to survive and hopefully thrive in these challenging times. I look forward to continuing to work with MAC and fighting for Michigan's counties on the many trying issues that remain a test for them, such as the state's continued attempts to pass off unfunded mandates on local units of government."Casperson was also elected to the Michigan Senate in November 2010, after serving in the Michigan House of Representatives for six years. He worked for 27 years in his family's log trucking business, including 12 years as its owner and operator.
