LANSING, Mich. — Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey on Monday offered condolences to the family of former Congressman Paul Mitchell:
“Paul was a friend and sometimes ‘friendly foe’ who was always consistent in his values and actions.
“He had an outsized voice that will surely be missed. Paul was my kind of guy — he always told you what he thought, straight up. My heart goes out to the Mitchell family for their loss. God bless you, Paul.”
