Senator Casperson to speak in Jamrich


If you’ve ever been interested in hearing a state senator speak on his experience in legislature, tonight might be your perfect opportunity.

Sen. Tom Casperson is coming to speak at NMU at 7 p.m. tonight in room 1320 of Jamrich Hall to talk about legislative bills, Michigan’s economy and issues in the U.P. Platform Personalities and the Student Finance Committee are sponsoring the event.

“This a great opportunity for students to learn about important issues in our state, and it gives students and the community a chance to get involved in these issues and become educated about what’s going on,” Rachel Harris, the director of both the Center for Student Enrichment and Superior Edge, said.

Casperson represents Michigan’s 38th district, which includes Alger, Baraga, Delta, Dickinson, Gogebic, Houghton, Iron, Keweenaw, Marquette, Menominee, Ontonagon and Schoolcraft Counties. In the Senate, he serves as chair of both the Transportation Committee and the Natural Resources Committee.
