The Port Huron (MI) Times Herald today featured Rep. Lauren Hager who represented a good chunk of their area for the past six years in the Michigan Legislature. He's a quality person and deserving of the area's appreciation.
He took his job very seriously and he did it in a term-limited environment where you didn't really have much time to learn your job as a lawmaker.
One of his strengths was that he listened to his people and he felt empathy. He also knew that government had limits. He loved kids and he really felt their pain when they were abused or neglected. I worked on his staff for his three terms. I'm really proud of that and feel grateful for being able to finish on a high note.
