PHOTO INFORMATION: Rep. Borton (R-Gaylord) is sworn in by House Clerk Gary Randall for his second term in the Michigan House of Representatives.
State Rep. Ken Borton announced today that his Lansing office is officially open and ready to serve the residents of Michigan’s 105th House District.
Borton is beginning his second term after being re-elected to the House this past November. He represents the new 105th House District following the statewide redistricting process.
“I am honored for the opportunity to continue serving Northern Michigan folks in Lansing,” Borton said. “As always, I encourage residents in the district to contact me with any questions, concerns or ideas so I can best represent our unique community.”
Rep. Borton has been appointed as the Republican vice chair for the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Agriculture. He will also serve on the Appropriations subcommittees on Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, Insurance and Financial Services, and Transportation.
The 105th House District includes Crawford, Missaukee, Otsego and Roscommon counties, as well as portions of Antrim, Kalkaska, and Oscoda counties.
Rep. Borton’s office is located at S-1389 in the Anderson House Office Building. He can be contacted by calling (517) 373-0829, emailing KenBorton@house.mi.gov, or mailing correspondence to S-1389 House Office Building, P.O. Box 30014, Lansing, MI 48909.
“If we transition the passport program from opt-in to opt-out we are effectively creating a tax on people who don’t pay attention. We shouldn’t be forcing people to pay for a park pass they don’t even know they’re receiving and may never use. The governor is trying to bankroll her liberal agenda on the backs of working-class folks who won’t see the hit coming.”
“The governor is like that friend who wants to catch up over a pricey dinner but conveniently leaves right before the bill comes. The steak and potatoes look good on the menu, but the cost makes it a lot harder to swallow. I hope the public recognizes the governor won’t be sitting at the dinner table next to us when it comes time to pay for all her proposals.”
“Sometimes in this job I really have to remind myself that it’s impossible to help people who don’t want to help themselves. Democrats have zero interest in helping themselves, or the people of Michigan right now. All they have to do is walk across the aisle and negotiate if they’re truly interested in putting people first and making things better. But instead, they’re still grasping to the convoluted idea that they have complete control.”
“It’s great to see MDOT recognize both the poor condition of the I-75 interchange in Gaylord and the growing congestion motorists see during tourism seasons,” Borton said. “This project is a great investment in our community. I’m really looking forward to using the new interchange myself.”
