Sen. Proos welcomes Sheriff Balk to state Capitol for State of the State address

LANSING—Sen. John Proos, R-St. Joseph, welcomes St. Joseph County Sheriff Bradley D. Balk to the Michigan Capitol before Gov. Rick Snyder’s 2014 State of the State address. Balk (left) was Proos’ guest for the annual address.

“During the past three years, we’ve achieved much in building a stronger, more vibrant Michigan,” Proos said. “Our task now is to remain cautious and responsible and ensure we wisely use our resources in a manner that meets our most pressing needs and invests in our hard-working families. I support the governor’s ideas of increasing our investments in fixing our roads, teaching our children, keeping our communities safe and giving needed tax relief to all Michigan residents.”
