Pegg Thomas, Alpena Office Coordinator, had an opportunity to speak with new State Senator John Moolenaar on January 31st while he was in Alpena. Senator Moolenaar represents the counties of Alcona, Alpena, Crawford, Iosco, Montmorency, Ogemaw, Oscoda and Otsego within our Northern Region. He is the Vice Chair of the Appropriations Committee.
Money is tight all across the state, including within the government, spending what we have wisely is more important than ever. One wise choice is to support an organization that helps people provide high quality care at home for their loved ones with dementia as long as possible. Senator Moolenaar is willing to listen and we need to reach out to him with our concerns and with our stories.
Please consider e-mailing Senator Moolenaar, or calling him at 517.373.7946, concerning support for the Alzheimer's Association here in Northern Michigan. We currently receive no funding or support from the state since the Healthy Michigan Fund monies were cancelled in 2009.
