It has been an honor and privilege to serve the people of Michigan


Dear Woods-N-Water News:

Michigan's great outdoors and its hunting heritage invokes for each of us cherished memories of family and friends and moments that will forever be with us. Our state's beautiful natural resources are something we all share together, and it is important that we work to sustain and protect those resources, together, so future generations of Michiganders will have the same opportunities to create lasting memories, as well.

As an elected official, I believe it is necessary to not only uphold this charge of conserving our state's natural resources in word, but in deed, also. I am a proud hunter and outdoorsman, and I purchase an annual state parks pass and buy three hunting licenses each year to do my part to conserve our state's natural beauty. In fact, one of this year's licenses went for the 8-point buck I bagged on opening day of firearm deer season.

Throughout my legislative career I have worked to promote and preserve our natural resources. As senator, I sponsored legislation to create an apprentice hunting program, which gives our children an early opportunity to become a part of a Michigan tradition. I was honored to have chaired the bipartisan legislative Sportsmen's Caucus, where I helped share our hunting tradition with fellow elected officials that in some cases had never hunted or held a firearm. As chair of the Senate Appropriations Natural Resources and Environmental Affairs Subcommittee and vice chair of the Senate Hunting, Fishing and Outdoor Recreation Committee, I have fought to fund programs that make Michigan such a unique place to live, work and play.

It has been an honor and privilege to serve the people of Northern Michigan, and the state as a whole, and to play a part, however small it may have been, in promoting and preserving Michigan's great outdoor heritage.

Senator Michelle McManus

35th State Senate District
