Saugatuck Township Trustee Chris Roerig got a close-up seat for last Wednesday’s State of State address in Lansing.
He sat with State Rep. Bob Genetski, R-Saugatuck, during the talk at the Capitol.
Roerig said it was his first time at a State of the State address.
“Bob invited me as a local official and small business owner,” he said. Roerig and his wife Linda own Baragar Pines Tree Farm, 2661 64th St. in Saugatuck Township. He is also vice president of sales and marketing for CQS Innovation, Inc., 2390 Pipestone Road in Benton Harbor.
“The atmosphere was positive,” Roerig said. “The governor impressed me with his commitment to accountability to achieve goals and the progress that the state is making.”
