Rep. Mark Ouimet Says Serving Constiuents was "Immense Honor"

The state representative will transition out of the 52nd House District in January.

With my state House tenure concluding at the end of the year, I'd like to take this time to thank everyone for giving me the immense honor of representing them at the Michigan capitol.

Voting on key issues on the state House floor is certainly a big part of the job, but more importantly to me was the ongoing role of helping local residents with their issues and concerns. I will forever cherish my interactions with the people of the 52nd House District, and how gratifying it was to be able to help them in some small way to improve their lives.

I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting so many great people here in Washtenaw County during the last two years. I may have stopped by your door, or talked with you a local senior center or event, but I appreciated each and every one of our discussions because it ultimately helped me represent you better.

One of the mottos I've always lived by is this: Try to make a positive difference in whatever you do and leave your community, neighborhood or workplace a better place than before you got there. I've worked very hard these past two years to live by that motto, and I can tell you unequivocally that the state of Michigan will be a better place because of the tough reforms that were made.

At the beginning of the new year, you'll have a different person representing your needs in Lansing. I wish state Representative-elect Gretchen Driskell the very best as she begins her new role, and am here to help her in any way during this transition.

Again, thank you for giving me your trust these past two years. It's been a tremendous honor to serve you. The office's permanent phone number is 517-373-0828, so please continue to call if you need assistance with state government issues.

Please have a safe and happy holiday season.

"An honor"...whatever. He was elected the first time by pulling the wool over everyone's eyes, and when he went back on his word, he was beat. He said he was going to be vindictive before he left office, and he kept his word on that. He voted for the Right to Work bill. The best thing for the 52nd District is that he is GONE! Good Riddance and don't the door hit ya on the way out!

The legacy of Mark Quimet is simple dicitated by the Repbulcian Caucus and the Koch brothers. Anti public education- raid the education fund and give it to big business Anti resident- eliminate the PPT for business and froce local governments to cut services or raise taxes Anti worker- vote to give the worker's boss the right to pay less Anti women- vote against women's rights to control their own health Pro Bolger- he's never voted agians the caucus including motorcycle helmets, fire crackers
