Ben Frederick, State Representative

2:44 pm

Independent Editor,

Thank you to the people of Shiawassee and rural Saginaw counties for “rehiring” me as state representative for a further term! With nearly 62 percent of the vote, we had a higher win percentage than two years ago and won every precinct and community across the district. It continues to be an honor to represent you all, and I am grateful for the continued trust which is being placed in me and my team.

I want to also commend my fellow candidate in the race, Eric Sabin, for running a constructive race focused on issues rather than personal attacks; for that my family and I are grateful. We wish him well as he continues to seek to serve our area.

Thank you to my dear wife Lydia and our family for making this season of service possible. Last week was the 11-year mark since my first election to local office. It’s not a lifestyle for the faint of heart and takes strong support back home.

I will strive to continue to be a positive and constructive voice for our area over the coming two years, while continuing to emphasize skilled trades education, agricultural processing expansion and initiatives which promote local control. I wish you and yours abundant blessings during the holiday season.

Ben Frederick, State Representative
