_MG_8949Dear Friends,

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your hard work and support that led to Tuesday’s victory. I could not have done it without you! I was continually amazed at your willingness to give your time, energy and resources and I will be forever grateful.

Now that the campaign is over I am looking forward to focusing all of my attention on the pressing issues still facing Michigan. We have made significant progress over the last four years, but there is still more to be done.

For those of you in Kalamazoo, I will continue to represent you and your interests for the rest of the year, at which point Margaret O’Brien will become your next senator. Until then, please do not hesitate to contact my legislative office if I can ever assist you with matters of state government. For those of you in the new 26th district, I look forward to strengthening the relationships that have already been built. If you ever need to get in touch with me, I am available at sentschuitmaker@senate.mi.gov or Sen. Tonya Schuitmaker, PO Box 30036, Lansing, MI 48909.

Again, I want to thank you for putting your trust in me. It is truly humbling to have such incredible support. Together, we can ensure that Michigan’s brightest days are ahead!
