MacGregor upholds commitment to district through perfect voting record

State Rep. Peter MacGregor was acknowledged for his perfect voting record in the first six months of the 2011 Michigan House legislative session.

More than 300 roll call votes were taken in the first six months and MacGregor was present for every vote. Voting histories are compiled on the nonpartisan website for all state lawmakers.

“Fulfilling my role as a state representative means being present for the people of my district and our state,” said MacGregor, R-Rockford. “The heavy lifting that has been done the past six months hasn’t been easy, but I was sent here to turn our state around and that involves showing up and making tough decisions. While I appreciate the recognition, I take this responsibility very seriously and am only doing what I was sent to Lansing to do.”

In the first six months of this year, the Michigan House enacted a simplified tax structure, ended lifetime benefits for lawmakers and took action to curb government spending. The state budget approved this spring was the earliest a state budget has been completed in 30 years.
