State Rep. Bradley Slagh, of Zeeland, issued the following statement regarding President Biden’s federal vaccine mandate:
“On January 20, the president pledged he would unite our divided country. Instead, he is now using questionable tactics to force millions of Americans to get a COVID-19 vaccine against their will. Increased federal requirements such as these put our country on a dangerously slippery slope, with the nagging question ‘what will they next require us to do that takes away more of our freedoms?’
“As your state representative, I will continue to oppose similar mandates here in the state of Michigan. However, as this is a federal mandate, I would encourage all my constituents who share similar concerns to contact U.S. Senators Stabenow and Peters. I am hoping that as more people contact them, they will encourage the president to abandon these misguided actions. If that doesn’t happen, I pray our federal courts will make the right decision and strike down the president’s proposal.”
State Rep. Bradley Slagh, of Zeeland, issued the following statement ahead of the governor’s 2022 State of the State address, which will take place on Wednesday, Jan. 26:
“I had a perfect voting record going into the last two weeks of House session when I unfortunately tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. In keeping with House protocol, as well as CDC guidelines, I fulfilled the required days of quarantine. As I had no choice but to stay home from Lansing for the last week of session, I sadly missed 62 votes.
