Original Ariticle:

MUSKEGON — Muskegon Community College is hosting a discussion between its president, Dale K. Nesbary, and U.S. Rep. Bill Huizenga at 10 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 24.

It will take place in the Sturrus Technology Center, 388 W. Clay Ave., Muskegon.

The event, which is free and open to the public, will focus on Huizenga’s vision and top priorities for the region.

“We are pleased to have Rep. Huizenga on campus to share his perspective of the upcoming congressional session,” Nesbary said. “The discussion will provide a strong start to the beginning of the winter semester here on our campus.”

Huizenga represents Michigan's 2nd Congressional District, which stretches from Kentwood to the Lakeshore and up the coast of Lake Michigan from Holland to Ludington. The Republican from Zeeland was first elected to Congress in 2010 and is currently serving his fourth term.

In January, Huizenga was elected by his colleagues to serve as a co-chairman of the Great Lakes Task Force. This bipartisan group fosters cooperation and support for policies and programs that enhance the environmental health of the Great Lakes while also ensuring the full economic potential of the region is realized.

As a member of the House Financial Services Committee, Huizenga has focused on removing government-imposed barriers to private sector job creation and increasing transparency across the federal government. He has been selected to lead the Capital Markets, Securities and Investment Subcommittee for the 116th Congress.
