LANSING — Rep. Gary Glenn, R-Midland, joined the bipartisan Michigan Legislative Hispanic Caucus at the invitation of newly-elected caucus chairman Rep. Harvey Santana, D-Detroit and vice-chairman Rep. Bruce Rendon, R-Lake City.
Glenn is not Hispanic, but the caucus by-laws state that “MLHC is committed to diversity and actively seeks to elect and recruit individuals from all segments of the population as officers, committee chairs and members.”
Santana said Friday he is “very excited and encouraged to have Rep. Glenn as a member. His experience will add tremendous value to the overall discussion of Hispanic economic prosperity. I look forward to listening to his views on the economy and how we can all participate in the American dream.”
