Dave Morgan has received the Michigan Farm Bureau AgiPac’s Friend of Agriculture endorsement in his bid to be elected as a State Representative for the 62nd District, located in Calhoun County, which is being vacated by current Rep. Dr. John Bizon.
Morgan, a Pennfield Charter Township Supervisor, currently serves on the Calhoun County Republican Party executive board while also chairing the local party’s Campaign Committee. A United States Veteran of Desert Storm, Morgan served 11 years between the United States Air Force and Reserves as well as the Michigan Air National Guard. Prior to being elected to serve as township supervisor, he was a manager and locomotive engineer for Amtrak.
In his AgriPAC survey responses, Morgan put Michigan roads and infrastructure improvements at the top of his list. “Every business and family in Michigan depends on our state to have a safe and well maintained infrastructure,” he said. “Even though we have made some progress there is still much to do and we need to start thinking 10 to 20 years ahead not what the temporary fix is right now.”
Morgan also spoke highly of agriculture’s contributions to the local economy and he intends to be an advocate for Michigan’s Right to Farm Act.
Subscribing to a “less Government is better Government philosophy,” Morgan hopes to work with the agricultural and business community to eliminate or minimize regulations that hinder economic growth.
“We cannot regulate anyone into prosperity,” Morgan said. “We need to make Michigan a state where business wants to be located - a state where we have roads second to none - a state where we have the smallest business tax in the nation. We need to compete and win.”
