Representative Tom Barrett has been serving the citizens of Ionia County for the past two years and has been a great friend to ABC Members statewide. Rep. Barrett committed to being a friend for the Merit Shop. His voting record has proven his dedication, including his vote to support the elimination of the burdensome 1:1 ratio of electrical apprentices to journeymen and preempting local prevailing wage and employment laws. Rep. Barrett “will continue to support policies designed to help our local economies grow and prosper, in order to ensure that there is plenty of opportunities for families to stay in Michigan because there is not a better place to work, live, and raise a family.”
