Gov. Gretchen Whitmer visited Brighton Tuesday morning to preview some of the topics she plans to discuss in her upcoming State of the State address on Wednesday and to hear from constituents.

Whitmer’s office chose the Brighton Light House as one of two locations for a roundtable discussion with area residents. Seven residents were invited to attend and share concerns on several topics, telling the second-term governor what they think about inflation, her support for the pension tax repeal bill, education, health care and other issues they face.

Whitmer said her State of the State address will focus on the people, particularly working people, recent graduates and children. She also noted that her appeal will address gun safety measures and more investment in law enforcement, mental health and education.
