On Monday June 7, 2010, the Speaker of Michigan’s House of Representatives, Andy Dillon (D-Redford Township), and State Representative Tim Melton (29th District Pontiac / Auburn Hills) visited the Pontiac Middle School Teen Health Center to talk with students. This Health Center is a school-based component of Oakland Primary Health Services. Additional funding and support is provided by the Michigan Department of Community Health, the Michigan Department of Education, the Pontiac School District, and other stakeholders.
Speaker Dillon has supported restoration of much of the funding that had been cut from Michigan schools earlier this year. He has also introduced a revised version of his legislation to save taxpayers nearly $1 billion a year to help resolve the state’s cycle of structural deficits, and to save Michigan jobs by reforming health care for public employees.
Speaker Dillon is running for Governor of the state of Michigan in the 2010 election. The primary is scheduled for August 3, with the general election to be held November 2.
