Confused by Pettalia’s comments, voting record

Who does Rep. Peter Petallia represent?

Rep. Petallia voted for major funding cuts for our schools which affected hundreds of employees and their families in our system.

He voted to tax the pensions of retired persons.

In the Alpena News dated May 28, he is quoted as saying that he does not believe in minimum wage supports.

He recently voted to provide the city of Detroit with nearly $200 million from our state treasury. I wonder where some of that money came from?

I hope that the working and retired people of our area remember these votes when they go to the polls this November.
