Proos sworn in as 21st District state senator

LANSING—State Sen. John Proos, R-St. Joseph, participated in a swearing-in ceremony Wednesday at the state Capitol with Michigan Supreme Court Chief Justice Robert P. Young, Jr. administering the oath of office.

Proos was joined on the Senate floor by his wife, Kristy, their three children and his parents, Mary Helen and Dr. John Proos.

“My top priority is jobs. That means working to create a positive business climate that will attract new jobs and investment in Michigan,” Proos said. “As we review state spending and cut red tape to help revitalize our economy, I will be mindful of the things that make Southwest Michigan a great place to live, work and raise a family.”
