REP. BEN FREDERICK (front right) can be seen on Thursday, Dec. 12 standing with family and friends of the late Dr. Richard Ball, the former state representative for the 85th District. Dr. Ball was an optometrist in Owosso for over 50 years, in addition to serving Shiawassee County and parts of Clinton County in the state House. Frederick commemorated Ball’s effectiveness as a legislator, his bipartisan nature and contributions to the practice of optometry on the House floor. In addition to Frederick’s speech, the House adopted a memorial resolution in his honor.
