Horn honored by retired police, firefighters

LANSING, Mich. — State Sen. Ken Horn on Tuesday was named Legislator of the Year by the Retired Detroit Police and Fire Fighter Association (RDPFFA).

“It is quite an honor to receive an award from such an exemplary group of individuals,” said Horn, R-Frankenmuth. “These men and women spent their entire careers facing danger and working to better their communities. It takes a special type of person to put the needs of others above their own. I’ve enjoyed working with Don over the past few years and sincerely appreciate this recognition.”

RDPFFA President Don Taylor recognized Horn for his continued efforts to allow firefighters and police to increase income deductions for their pensions in order to cover benefits that are not covered by Social Security.
