Horn earns Michigan Economic Developers Association’s highest honor

LANSING, Mich. — The Michigan Economic Developers Association recently honored state Sen. Ken Horn with the association’s highest honor at their annual conference in Detroit.

“We’ve worked hard to move beyond the damage done by the lost decade and make Michigan a more friendly state to do business,” said Horn, R-Frankenmuth. “There have definitely been some setbacks, but also a number of efforts that have shown their success as we look for ways to keep Michigan competitive on a global scale and bring new jobs, technologies and talent to our state.

“It’s been a pleasure to work with the countless people who are so dedicated to Michigan’s success — few things have been as rewarding. I want to thank the association for this honor, but more importantly, everyone who has dedicated years of their lives to make our state the place where people want to find a career and start their family.”

Horn was presented with the MEDA Medalist of the Year Award for his role as chair of the Senate’s Economic and Small Business Development Committee and for his longstanding commitments to Michigan’s economic recovery, efforts to train and retain Michigan workers, keeping Michigan competitive, and attracting new, good-paying jobs to the state.

The senator has previously been honored as the association’s Legislative Economic Development Champion as well.
