LANSING—Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey, R-Clarklake, reflected upon the legacy of Governor William Milliken and offered condolences to his family.
“Governor Milliken did not allow himself to be encumbered by the narrow definitions of partisanship. His priority was Michigan and its citizens. Governor Milliken forged a pathway through the center of politics and left a legacy of achievements that made our state a better home. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. May they find comfort in the joy of memories and peace in the knowledge that his was a life well-lived.”
