Sen. Richardville achieves perfect voting record for 2007-2008 legislative session
LANSING-Senate Majority Leader Michael D. Bishop today announced that Sen. Randy Richardville achieved a perfect voting record for the 2007-2008 legislative session.
“Voting during session is one of the most significant responsibilities we have as lawmakers,” said Bishop, R-Rochester. “It’s our job to show up and vote. I commend Senator Richardville for his dedication as a state legislator and thank him for his strong service.”
Richardville is the only member in the Senate who did not miss a single vote for the two-year period.
“As a state senator, I am committed to representing area residents on the important issues facing Michigan,” said Richardville, R-Monroe. “I voted on every bill because it is my responsibility to be actively engaged in the legislative process. I will continue to take an active role in the upcoming session.”
During the past two years, Richardville has helped move several bipartisan, bicameral legislative packages through the state Legislature, including mortgage reforms, renewable energy legislation and a variety of economic development measures.
“Although the state will face many challenges in the coming year, I am excited to work with my constituents and colleagues in the Legislature to provide relief for Michigan families and businesses,” Richardville said.
Richardville represents all of Monroe County, the southern part of Washtenaw County (the city of Saline and Bridgewater, Lodi, Manchester, Pittsfield, Saline and York townships) and part of Jackson County (Summit, Leoni, Norvell and Grass Lake townships).
The legislative session began Jan. 1, 2007 and ended Dec. 31, 2008. Sen. Richardville’s voting record can be verified at www.michiganvotes.org.
