Sporting jeans and toting power drills, Sen. Steve Bieda, Rep. Jon Switalski and Rep. Ken Goike joined other local legislators Thursday, July 28, in Eastpointe to assist on a build with Macomb County Habitat for Humanity.
“All of the elected officials on hand were very excited to trade in their computers for tool belts!” said Macomb Habitat’s marketing and PR manager Nicole White.
