“We live in a time where our freedom of speech is being questioned all too often,” said Steele, R-Orion Township. “This contest gives our students the opportunity to explore their first amendment right and communicate how essential that liberty is to them. To me, nothing is more important than our freedom of expression. Our ability to partake in civil discourse is the absolute bedrock of our nation.”
“All people have a moral obligation to speak out against hate whenever it rears its ugly head – this is one of those times. As elected officials, we are the voice for our communities. We are held to a higher standard and must answer to all comments we make, including any and all social media posts.”
“In a time when political divides keep deepening, the House needs something for everyone to agree on; I’m confident this school safety legislation is that something,” said Steele, R-Orion Township. “This week, we’re remembering a tragedy at Michigan State University. Being from Lake Orion, I can’t help but draw the connection to our neighboring sister community of Oxford and the terrifying events which occurred there over two years ago. The best was to prevent these horrific events from repeating themselves is to bind together and pass school safety bills. Our kids and communities depend on it.”
