Dear Friend & Supporter, I’m so pleased to announce that the state’s Mackinac Bridgelicense plate is here.
mile bridge opened in1957 and today is still the longest suspension bridge in the westernhemisphere. It doesn’t matter howmany times I’ve seen it, themoment the bridge comes intoview, it’s still breathtaking.

In other news, I was very proud to present the Detroit Tigers with one of our Shining Star awards for all they havedone to promote organ donation. It was a great evening at Comerica Park and best of all, the Detroit Tigers won!
