Michigan Association Of Counties Recognizes Legislators As Friends Of MAC

"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.

Gregory started his career with the Wayne County Sheriff's Department, where he attained the rank of Corporal and then Detective. In 1998, Gregory ran successfully in a special election for Oakland County Commissioner. For the next ten years, he maintained that position, and served on numerous committees.  In 2008, Gregory was elected to the State House for the 35th District.  And, now Gregory is serving his first term as the State Senator for the 14th District.

"Being recognized as a friend to counties is an honor," Gregory said. "I always keep the experiences I had as a county commissioner in mind while making decisions here in Lansing." 

"MAC thanks Sens. Booher, Casperson, and Gregory for their listening ear, firm voice, and staunch support," said MAC President Thom Bardwell (R- Tuscola County), "their tireless work to protect local decision-making and local funding empowers citizens, whom we all serve."

The Michigan Association of Counties (M.A.C.) founded on February 1, 1898, is the only statewide organization dedicated to the representation of all county commissioners in Michigan. M.A.C. is a non-partisan, non-profit organization which advances education, communication and cooperation among county government officials in the state of Michigan. M.A.C. is the counties' voice at the State Capitol, providing legislative support on key issues affecting counties.
