State Rep. Mike Mueller, second from left, was recently recognized by the Michigan Sheriffs’ Association as its Legislator of the Year. He is joined by the CEO and Executive Director of the Michigan Sheriffs’ Association Matt Saxton, left; Deputy Director Dan Pfannes, second from right; and Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole, who serves as president of the board of directors.
State Rep. Mike Mueller was recently named Legislator of the Year by the Michigan Sheriffs’ Association.
“My experience in law enforcement is a major part of what drives my desire to serve in the Legislature,” said Mueller, of Linden. “When I go to the Capitol, my goal is to be a voice for our community and shape policy decisions to make our state an even better place to live. It’s an honor to have my work recognized by the Michigan Sheriffs’ Association – an organization for which I have a tremendous amount of respect.”
Mueller, a retired sheriff’s deputy, is serving his second term in the Michigan House representing people in southern Genesee County and northwest Oakland County. He was recognized, in part, for spearheading a plan to offer additional funding for local law enforcement agencies and provide more tools for officer recruitment and retention.
Earlier this year, Mueller received awards from both the Police Officers Association of Michigan and the Michigan Association of Chiefs of Police.
“I enjoy hearing input from the people I serve. It helps me ensure I am representing their interests when I go to Lansing,” Mueller said. “Anyone who has questions about state government can also get guidance from my office. I have a great team that backs me up, and we’re always happy to help.”
State Rep. Mike Mueller today highlighted a major road project included in the new state budget that will greatly improve the flow of traffic on Thompson Road over U.S. 23 in Fenton Township.
