LANSING, Mich. — The Police Officers Association of Michigan (POAM) recently presented Sen. Ken Horn with the organization’s Legislator of the Year award.
Horn was chosen as Legislator of the Year for working with the association to remedy collective bargaining issues that have been presented by Public Act 54 of 2011. They also credited Horn with leading the legislative effort to add county corrections officers to those covered by Michigan’s binding arbitration law, Public Act 312 of 1969.
“It’s an honor to be recognized for helping support our state’s law enforcement officers and ensuring they are treated with the respect they deserve,” said Horn, R-Frankenmuth. “I will continue to work with the association to correct these issues and make certain both our officers and the public are protected.”
President Jim Tignanelli and Legislative Director Ken Grabowski presented Horn with the award at POAM’s August board meeting.
