LANSING — Rep. Bradstreet, R-Gaylord, won’t represent Crawford County next year, but don’t count him out just yet.
Bradstreet said he is busy campaigning for re-election in his new geographic district and he is also dealing with issues that affect Crawford County, such as a veterans’ cemetery and two consumer protection bills.
He said he will continue to push for federal financing for a veteran’s cemetery somewhere near Grayling. He added that getting financing might not be realistic because of state and federal budget concerns. The bill now sits in the House and if it’s not passed this session, it will be re-introduced into the House in January. Bradstreet said it remains one of his top priorities.
He will also chair a conference committee to create a “do not call” list for telemarketers. The bill would allow people to sign a list preventing telemarketers’ calls. The committee hopes to create a version of the bill that will pass both houses of the Legislature.
One other item on the representative’s fall agenda is the introduction an Internet privacy bill to keep companies from sharing personal information about Web users.
Bradstreet said he would continue to address voters’ concerns and questions and will refer any unresolved issues to his successor.
