Rep. Gary Glenn lives in Larkin Township and was first elected to the Michigan House of Representatives in November 2014. He represents the 98th District, which includes the cities of Auburn, Pinconning, Linwood, and the townships of Beaver, Fraser, Garfield, Gibson, Mount Forest, Pinconning, and Williams in Bay County. In Midland County, the district includes the city of Midland, the village of Sanford, and the townships of Midland, Homer, Jerome, Larkin, Lee, and Lincoln.
Gary is vice chairman of the House Energy Policy Committee and also serves on the Commerce and Trade, Military and Veterans Affairs, and Tax Policy committees. Gary also represents the state of Michigan on the National Conference of State Legislatures 2015-2016 Natural Resources and Infrastructure Committee to learn of ongoing energy initiatives, opportunities, and challenges across the country.
After his first year in office, Gary was named 2015 "Freshman Legislator of the Year" by the editor and reporters of the Michigan Information and Research Service (MIRS), the state Capitol's oldest daily news service. His selection from among 44 first-term state representatives and 10 first-term state senators was due largely to his leadership in the energy policy debate, MIRS said.
Conservative Republican. Tested. Trusted. A track record of experience, accomplishment, hard work, and effective conservative leadership.
Jim Stamas for State Senate paid $325 the first time around, then gave Spangler’s duck back for resale, which brought in another $180 from Bay Mid Drywall.
Republican candidates were out in force on Wednesday as Gary Glenn for Representative, John Moolenaar for Congress and Roger Hauck for State Representative all purchased animals, but chose to give the animal back for resale. According to auction rules, the highest amount of the two bids goes to the seller. The lowest bid goes to the 4-H Small Animal Committee to improve the 4-H small animal exhibits.
Stamas purchased six animals, including a mini satin junior rabbit doe from Theoron Arno. Stamas said he has been trying to purchase one of Arno’s animals for three years and finally was successful.

Glenn last week received the support of the state affiliate of the National Association of Theater Owners, whose members include the Neighborhood Cinema Group (NCG), which owns the Midland theater, and Goodrich Quality Theaters, which owns the Bay City theater.
Glenn, a cosponsor of bipartisan legislation that would extend Freedom of Information Act requirements to Michigan’s governor and legislature, said he believes transparency also includes keeping constituents informed about his health after being diagnosed in January with prostate cancer that had grown up his spinal column and destroyed one vertebrae, breaking his back. Glenn said he received his last chemotherapy treatment on July 27 and that his PSA count — 348 when the cancer was discovered — is now less than 0.1, the lowest score the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center can measure.

Nearly five years after making the ultimate sacrifice for his country, U.S. Navy Corpsman Aaron D. Ullom was remembered Saturday by his friends, family and local legislators at a bridge dedication ceremony that will leave his name and memory above a busy thoroughfare in his hometown.
A crowd gathered at the Midland Armory at 2 p.m. Saturday to hear from those who knew and loved Ullom from his early years and from his time in the service. Ullom was a 2009 Midland High School graduate, who joined the U.S. Navy and was killed by enemy gunfire on July 12, 2011 while in Helmand Province, Afghanistan.
It was a simple action on Ullom’s behalf, a natural instinct to leave the safety of a small ditch to apply a tourniquet to a wounded Marine nearby, but an action that has left a tremendous impact on his community and now a permanent fixture in Midland. Gov. Rick Snyder signed Senate Bill 513, now Public Act 21 of 2016, in February to designate the bridge in recognition of Ullom.
