Sen. Emmons Appoints Staff; Office Ready to Serve Constituents

LANSING — State Sen. Judy Emmons announced today that her Lansing office is open and she and her staff are ready to meet the needs of 33rd Senate District constituents in Clinton, Ionia, Isabella and Montcalm counties.

“Michigan is at an economic crossroads, and in the four counties of the 33rd Senate District we know that we can wait no longer for positive action,” said Emmons, of Sheridan. “I am looking forward to the challenge of beginning to lay the foundation for the strong, healthy future every one of us wants for our families and our communities.”

Emmons said she has an experienced staff in place that will help her meet those challenges.

Chief of Staff Laura Toy is a former state representative and state senator; Holly Nester is Legislative Director; and Jackie Mosher is Scheduler. District Liaison is Sylvia Warner.

Nester and Mosher have extensive experience in legislative work. Nester worked for Gov. John Engler and former Sen. Tom George. Mosher has 16 years of legislative experience and has worked for former Sen. Bev Hammerstrom, and most recently for Sen. John Pappageorge. Warner, former editor of The Greenville Daily News, recently retired after more than 10 years on the staff of U.S. Congressman Mike Rogers of Michigan.

“The 33rd Senate staff includes four legislative veterans who are ready and willing to respond to all our constituents’ needs and provide the assistance that is essential as state residents deal with state agencies and issues,” Emmons said. “I invite everyone to e-mail, call or write our office and to drop by for a visit whenever they are in Lansing.”
